There is a play group that I attend almost weekly, even though Evelyn is in school during the meeting time. I bring Claire and feel comfortable that the other moms know the true value of play groups – Adult Interaction for Parents. We all know it.
After play time we had a lovely picnic and explored a new park on the Sound. Plenty of rocks, a hiking trail, frequent trains moving along the coast, and mountains popping and and out of view through the thin clouds – just a lovely afternoon. I was super happy and so was Evelyn….until she got rocks in her boots. Not cool, man. It’s lucky for us that Claire is such a laid back baby – she has seemingly enjoyed all the adventures, too, so long as I remember her bottles & a semi-frequent diaper change. What a trooper.
