So anyways, today was another one of those days. Annika and I stayed in pajamas and cleaned house, read books together, ate too many chocolate chip cookies. I switched out my summer dresses for cozy fall sweaters, Annika "booped" all her dolls and dinosaurs. (Which means she scanned them with the new toy cash register that I found at the thrift store for $1.75! Its her favorite thing.) This kind of afternoon is perfect in our old house full of open windows and noisy trees. We had leftovers for lunch and plan to have cheap pizza for dinner, so even my kitchen duties are slack today.
But its too beautiful of a day to stay inside totally, so we packed up her tricycle and drove across the street to the duck pond. Okay, I know its technically a cemetery, but I plan to always refer to it as our "duck pond," thankyouverymuch. I thought the ducks would be frightened by a toddler on a tricycle, but they actually sauntered lazily around us in circles while she pedaled back and forth in a short line. Annika can't be near water without wanting to throw stuff into it, however, so we spent most of our time hunting for small rocks to splash into the pond. It was a short trip, but not so short that I didn't get some pictures!
