Yet another spin around the sun
A Walk to the Park
There used to be a day when most
of the cousins
enjoyed a walk to the park - now they seem to enjoy sleeping.
Early (like 9am Saturday) sleep seemed to take the older cousins - only
Chrissy, Justin and Kayla were up. Eager to go do something, we
went for a walk to the Park. It was still a little moist but we

and one evening we hung out on the farm. Being set on the leeward

prolonged affairs that bathe the fields in soft reflected light - one
of my favorite lighting environments. Kayla and Justin were nice
enough to join me for a walk down to the creek in the lower fields.
