Before we had our picnic dinner, Ava enjoyed watching the model airplane fly around a nearby field while chugging her juice from her new grown-up beverage holder (no more sippy cups!).
A quick drive from the park to a nearby office building with a small pond, a fountain and a gaggle of geese (two of Ava's favorite things) followed by a short walk through the woods on one of Joe's favorite bike trails.
A great Sunday that followed a great Saturday. No pictures from yesterday as I was flying solo for the main event (Ava and I went to see the fire trucks, ambulances, police cars and the tractor that were on exhibit as part of a 5K race held at the nearby firehouse). When asked what we saw yesterday, Ava will tell you, "firetruck.... ambulance.... peace car.... tractor" (with a little prompting: "Yes, a firetruck. Then what did you see?") And then she'll tell you that the tractor said, "Beep beep" (as the farmer climbed in, started driving, waved to her and hit the horn a few times). A visit to our coffee shop and then lunch with Joe. A great Saturday.
Here's to a quieter week than last week. Only two appointments - a nice change from the four I had last week. Quiet is good.
