We went to the park
We love winters in Central Florida because they are so mild. And this winter has been an exceptionally mild one indeed. We usually hit up our favorite park by the river quite a bit, but because of our recent move, the dumplings have spent more time playing in the cul-de-sac than at the park.
So when I told them the other day that we were going to head to our favorite park, they lit up! As we were driving along the river and the park was in sight, they gleefully exclaimed from the back of the van "We missed you!!!!" Hilarious. But true.
I always bring my camera to the park, ever since those photography classes I took last summer. So snapping a few shots of the dumplings was to be expected. What I wasn't expecting, however, was the early winter sunset. I just forgot that it sets so early now. So this was a total plus.
They chased dragon flies and rolled around on the ground while the heron on the dock posed for me. Of course, when I wanted to snap them having fun, they were done.
I think we need to get back to the park some more. Sorry new cul-de-sac. I do love you, just not at this time of day. I hear the river calling my name.
