Sunshine at the Park
The other day, Angel shocked me. It was his day off, and in the morning he said, "How about we go have a picnic at the park for dinner?"
We'd never done such a thing before, but it sounded like bliss to me! We proceeded on to the chores of our day, which involved lawn-mowing and weed-whipping for him and a lot of sorting and packing of stuff for me. (Goodbye, beloved old clothes that I bequeathed to my sister. I still love you, but I simply can't take all of you to China...)
We headed out to the park in late afternoon, with food, our camping "loveseat" (double-chair), books, and, of course, a camera to document our adventure.
We had a blast, but we pretty much acted like old people at the park, barely getting out of our chair. We ate, and Angel studied Chinese while I read books. We watched youngsters doing backflips and driving remote control cars all over the place while Angel cheered for a crash. I got out the camera to take a picture, and upon turning it on, it gave me the bad news: "No memory remaining"
Where was the SD card that ought to be in my camera?? Chillin' in the SD card slot in my laptop at home, of course. So no pictures were taken of this evening at the park. Oh well. I swear it happened, even if there's no photographic evidence.
When we got back in our car to go home, we were amazed to find out that 3 hours had sped by. I guess time flies when you're basking in too-long-delayed sunshine.
These pictures were clearly taken at home, not at the park. And Angel wanted a cameo appearance in this post:
Now that's we've tried it once, we think we want to have a few more picnics in the park before we move. Where's your favorite place to eat in the summer?
And why is it so hard to remember to put the SD card back in my camera after taking pictures?
