For a little more than 2 weeks now we've been waking up and walking out the door at 9:00 a.m. to head to a local park to play in the large soccer fields. Today we took a long walk through the neighborhoods going down the streets we haven't haunted yet admiring the thick stands of bamboo trees and other gardening projects that have all become far more beautiful in recent weeks. And instead of spending time in the park allowing E to run free we headed home to our freshly mowed yard and ran around in circles instead.
