Our Early Morning

We dined on lemon yogurt, dry Kix cereal, raisins and applesauce. It was our breakfast picnic, and the kids sat in the stroller with their jackets on while I sat on the park bench. We talked about all the early morning sounds - crickets chirping, some distant dogs barking, and even further in the distance, a train. Just beyond the park bench, the playground was waiting - it called out to my little ones several times during their breakfast. "Be patient" I told them - "It will be there when we finish our picnic." For a full hour, it was all ours - alone in the park - just me and my munchkins. We played and laughed and ran and climbed.


And as the sun rose above the tree tops, we were swinging as high as we cold go!
