Y3 - 214/365: Picnic in the Park
Today we headed off to Haden Hill Park for a simple, little picnic with the kiddos. Amy and Ryan had a ball running around in the grass and spotting all the ducks and geese by the pond. I had actually woken up this morning to the news bulletin on my phone that said Osama Bin Laden had been captured and killed, so I felt it appropriate to wear my only American Flag Old Navy tee, ironically dated from 2001.
Score, US Military!
Ryan, on the other hand opted for something a little more subtle in his Thomas the Tank Engine wardrobe and sported Percy. He's not that political anyway, so thought he'd keep his attire playful for the venue.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
