Yesterday evening the weather was absolutely perfect, the sun was shining, but not too brightly. The air was warm with just the subtlest of breezes to keep things moving along. Eric has been itching to get out and enjoy some tennis and I am just always itching to get outdoors when the weather is like this.
We went to the park and set up with our blanket (thanks Stacy) in the grass and relaxed. Eric went to the tennis court and practiced his serve for a while.
Cordelia was tentatively willing to check out the grass. She touched it with her hands and toes, but when she fell on her bum in the grass it was all a bit too much and she had to come back to me for a little mom time. It is so amazing to see her look at the world and realize that she is seeing most things for the first time. I wish I could recapture that awe for myself, but I am thrilled to watch her experience it all.
When Eric was done with tennis he rejoined the family troop. Bumblebee was ridiculously excited and made a spectacle of herself in a way that only dogs are capable of.
****Yesterday Eric shaved off his beard. When Eric does this he always has to stop mid shave and come let me see his ridiculous mustache, chin strap, or whatever he comes up with. Once he forces me to smooch him with creepy facial hair he shaves it off and nobody is the wiser. Anyway I have some photos and he won't let me share them. Who thinks we should put them out there for the world to examine? Maybe we can pressure him into it...maybe not.****
