They were excited the way four and six year olds are when doing something they enjoy. My husband and I were headed to the park with our granddaughters for the first time this year. The girls love to make cracker sandwiches with peanut butter for their snack at the picnic table. They use as much peanut butter as crackers and giggle as they are made. Grapes and juice go with us too. We were ready.
The red wagon is part of the experience. Sylvie has long legs now, but she sat in the front of wagon and her sister sat behind her. They chatted non stop all the way to the park and played "eye spy" which Caitlin hasn't mastered yet but loves to play anyway.
The park had been cleaned of the millions of leaves from last autumn. We were the only ones there for much of the time and the girls made the rounds. They love the teeter totter but it would be hard to pick a favourite.
A year brings a lot of growth in the life of a young child.

The little ones and little things in life bring much joy.
