the first day our local wading pool was open for the summer. (and we were the first ones in it- hello inaugural wade!)
picnic at the park
Isaac’s newly stained swim shirt
Joseph’s “hot dog dance” when I told him we could go back to the wading pool for round 2
chlorine and sunblock
Isaac’s soggy swim diapered hiney sitting on my lap
sleepy silence the whole walk home
nap time on mama’s bed with joseph plastered kitten-style to my back
Isaac laughing at his big brother all afternoon.
the day that I had been dreading
(the first day back and on my own after our Oregon trip)
not so bad after all.
