We sat met the Bovees for lunch. Snacked on chips and seaweed.
Calmed countless tantrums and worked out quarrels struck on lollipop issues.
Rode new skateboards and watched Jack chase those big white pelican around the lake.
Played hide & seek. Sardines, and kick ball.
We stayed till dusk, watched the sun set.
Had our cars jumped by the nice ranger with a peculiar look on his face, noting the two of us with dead cars and a backseat full of cranky kids.
We drove home and warm took baths to wash away that dirty park smell, ate dinner with friends and enjoyed the tail end of the inauguration and then fell fast asleep with sun drenched visions of a bright January day with friends and new toys, and wild dogs and those big white pelicans settling inside our midnight dreams.
It was a good day.
And we have the sun burns to prove it.
