Today was great, really great. Bedtime has been a bit of drag lately (bit of an understatement) so we started the day a little weary and a lot exhausted. We went to Brunswick Nurseries to visit the animals and go for a little nature walk. This visit is always a hit with the girls but today it was extra special. When we arrived and piled out of the car the girls noticed that the horse and the llama had escaped their pens and were running freely around the garden. This excited the girls so much that they were vibrating. Kate flapped so hard, I swear she got air. I think the peacock tried to communicate with her. God, I love the flapping. It makes me so happy to see Kate become overwhelmed with so much excitement that it has to escape out of her hands. It was the happiest and most excited I have seen her in a long time. If I didn't have to keep a vice grip on her arm so she wouldn't join the horse and the llama on their run I would have taken a picture.
Once the animals were wrangled back into their pens we went about our walk and had a lovely day. Grace took her usual big sister lead role and led Kate around the trail while I walked behind listening to their funny way of communicating with each other. Grace has Kate figured out. Grace doesn't see a thing wrong with her. Today was another example of how lucky we are. I think you understand.
