Smiling on Daddy's chest.




Yesterday we went to hang out at the racket club as guests of some of the kids in our youth group. We just lounged around near the lake, soaking up this sun and the wind. Today we went on our first family walk on the bike path. When we came back, Caiden and I had a picnic in our back yard. We've picnicked before, but she was too little to fully enjoy it. I'll include some pictures Jeff captured while Caiden was telling how much she was enjoying herself. I have never seen her so excited. Her whole body was excited: her arms were waving, legs were kicking, she was smiling and cooing. She even had her first out-loud laugh as the wind blew by. I couldn't help but join her in her exultation. It was one of those priceless moments that you cherish forever.

You and Allie are making me jealous with all these BEAUTIFUL bare baby outside pictures!

Yes, I thought today would be perfect for a picnic here, too, but. . . well, look at our "backyard."
