2/11/11 -- Sunshine

It was completely spontaneous.

Tink had been in need of new tennis shoes for some time,
and Jay was determined to get them - TODAY!
So she needed to go with him to make sure he got the right size.

That left Tiara and me, since Sugar was at school.
I asked her what she wanted to do...

So, off we went...
Pink and black tulle skirt, and all :)

We rode up to a place we call "Castle Park".
It's kind of a secret place for my girls.

I had to take a picture of my bike.
You see, it's the first time I've been able to hop on it without having to pull a kiddo behind me.
Not that I mind tugging the cart, but it was a much nicer ride without it!

See all that lush green grass?
This is what it looked like while laying on it under a tree.

On the way home, we stopped at the solar garden.

This was part of the "earth display".
It really made me pause to think about something that's been weighing heavy on my heart lately.

Today's Joy:  Spontaneous bike rides and enjoying God's creation.


  1. Looks like such a fun day Wendy! Love your photos btw!

  2. I'm loving this Wendy. Joy is good!

  3. I'm so jealous! I think we've had 1 day of sunshine in the past 3 months.

    I'm so glad that you had the opportunity to spend some one on one time together. Those are definitely times to treasure.

  4. What a special memory for you both! God is Good!

  5. These photos make my heart SING with JOY! So beautiful outside!!!!
