Day 142 - Saturday In the Park

Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing Italian songs
Eicay vare, eise narde
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For Saturday
Last year about this time we made it a habit to go to the park on Saturday afternoons for a few hours. We packed a picnic lunch, roamed the park, the shutterbug chasing a Pixie chasing a butterfly, and had high quality family time. I believe we stopped doing so in mid August when it just got to hot an miserable. I was sad to see it come to an end but life moved on and the anticipation of doing it again come spring was sweet.

Spring has come and nearly gone and we have yet to make our first trek to a park. The heat of summer is right around the corner and yet we just can't seem to make it there. Laundry, grocery shopping, lists and such seem to stand as a wall between my little family and great park adventures. How did I do it last year? How did I manage the time? I'm at a loss.

I woke this morning with "Just do it" in my years and "Quit being a pansy". So, if you will excuse me, I have a Pixie to chase.

Later Yo ~

Today I'm grateful for:

Saturday's in the park.

peanut butter sandwiches & fresh orange slices.

chasing a Pixies and new friends.

feeding the shutterbug.

dinner plans with my wild things

returning to where I was bitten

Sunshine through the trees

God winks

Saturday morning work outs. OK, this one I have to work at...

jumping on unsuspecting, sleepy pixies. Yes, I am that evil

the color of pistachio pudding. It is the perfect green

puppies in the park

playing dress-up in public and tween girls unafraid to look silly

swing sets

laughter in the grass

the adventure to come...
