and then we went to the park

It was early on our day off. Only 8:30 or so, and yet the children were bouncing around the room with loads of energy.
While sitting in front of my computer catching up on my favorite blogs sounded perfect to me, the girls didn't agree.
So, we packed them up, strapped them in the car, and went to the park.

The weather was perfect, the park was empty, Lexi was content to stay on the quilt while Daddy played Angry Birds. (Anyone else love that app?)



I went off to catch some sun flare.


We walked around that beautiful morning collecting pine cones, reading the Guarani names of trees, and taking big, deep breaths of fresh cool air.

Then it was off to Grandma and Grandpas house with a brown sack full of chewy Chinese donuts.

Perfect. And much better than reading blogs all morning.

What a beautiful day you had with those sweeties! I'm glad to finally catch up after being too busy and having erratic nternet. Have a fun weekend too, and I hope you have some time to relax while packing! Hope the house is coming along nicely too.

Jackie,
So glad to see you all back! Your park looks wonderful -- a blessing for those full-of-energy days! I just wish I could get bottle up some of that energy for myself right now! :)
