I made dinner last night as I normally do.
I told the girls to get their shoes on, it was time to set the table at the lake.
"We are eating outdoors this evening!"
Who says we can't have pasta at the park?
Who says we can't seize a beautiful evening by carrying our dinner to the great outdoors?
Sam was in the big city for a meeting, so it was just my girls and I.
After we ate and cleaned up, we just walked around and played.
The lake has a great energy right after a cold winter. People, pets, cute kids are everywhere all with the same common plan...enjoyment of the great outdoors.
If I could pick a favorite simple moment, it would be sitting on the big rocks right by the water. Talking together, laughing, listening to the waves splash on the rocks. We stayed there the longest, as Rachel found a stick, an old fishing line and worked on creating a fishing pole.
In a few years these girls of ours are going to start flying away to lives of their own, as they should.
It's nice to have these simple times.
