Happiness is – A Picnic in the Park

The house is still.  There are no kids to take my mind off the project at hand.

What a great feeling!  Finally, I can ponder our very full and fun day together.

Ava has been preparing for this day the entire winter.  She has been wanting to go have a picnic in the park since we did it last fall.  It was a beautiful day (a bit hot at 85 – in my opinion) – a perfect day to take a picnic to the park.

I fulfilled her wishes, so for me, today was a happy day!

Swinging, sliding, twirling and twisting.

Eating riding and being afraid of bees

 Eating, drinking, sling riding and bee frightening.

Playing, laughing, and getting a bit hot.

Sitting, waiting, drinking, teeter totting, and baby head kissing.

And one of my most fav.  A quiet car to drive home in!  They were all knocked out!

It is all of these things/happenings/smiles/tears/laughter/fright/excitement that makes me so very happy and so very lucky.
