a mid-week break
My parents have been in town this week. They are off to see Leslie in Texas next. We'll miss them when they go. No more excuses for missing school. Or for going out to lunch everyday. Or for eating mostly Paradise Bakery molasses cookies.
Yesterday we went to the Park of the Canals here in Mesa. It was a nice change from our usual neighborhood park. We read about the ancient canals (over 2000 years old!), followed the path through the desert, and played on the playground until it was time to meet Mike for gyros.
After a week of freezing cold, it was sunny and warm and bright and just right. It was the sort of happy, easy day I'd like to lock in my memory forever.
