A Day at the Park

Once upon a time, there was such a gorgeous day....a Winter day even....that all of Western Washington shielded their eyes and simply HAD to venture out into the sun.

It was a day without coats!

The air smelled like Spring

and everyone ran and played,

and swung and hung,

and chased down speedy toddlers.

It was a day when the sun beat down on Cholita's shiny black hair and made her hot and sleepy
and she slowed down just long enough for me to remember the first time I saw her--when I gasped because she was so beautiful.

It was a perfect day.

The End.

We need those kinds of days now and again. (and again, and again)

It was a perfect day in our corner of W. WA too! We did not venture to the park, but we did take the plastic kitchen outside and play with water and bowls! :D Fun times! :D
