I look forward to Friday all week and then almost forget what day it is! Does this happen to anyone else?

We are so blessed to live in an area that values recreation for children.  We took full advantage of that this weekend and took our daughter on a "tour" of a few parks in neighboring towns.  This park was down the street from where my husband grew up.  She was attached to that spiral pole.  "This twisty thing is awesome!"

I always love the sight of a good, fluffy dandelion.  Brings back many fond childhood memories. And it tickled me that she instinctively knew that you just had to blow the white puffs. So precious.

Like we didn't get enough BBQ on 4th of July, we went all spontaneous and picked up The Works from Trader Joe's: Veggie Cheese burgers, sweet white corn, Garlic fries, and pineapple, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes and button mushroom teriyaki kabobs.  I cleaned my plate.  It was glorious.

Another park stop; this park was down the street from the Elementary school my husband and I (and my mom, my brother, my brother in law and in a few years, our daughter) attended. It was a beautiful day and a celebration of sorts- we just discovered we are expecting Miracle #2!
Happy weekend, Friends!
