PLACE:  Longacre Park
SUBJECT:  Bike rack

StellaDella’s kindergarten class was supposed to have their field trip to the zoo today, but the weather was not cooperating.  Instead, they implemented “Plan B” and went bowling and then to a park to eat lunch under a pavilion.  Did I mention, that in a moment of weakness, I volunteered as a parent chaperone?  Luckily, there were quite a number of us and I only had to keep an eye on 3 kiddos.  It was misting and very chilly at the park, but the kids did not mind.  They played in the fenced-in wooden playground for about an hour and had a blast.  I was able to quickly snap this picture while they were running around in a gigantic game of tag.
And here is a shout out to my pop – since today is his birthday (68!)
Happy Birthday Dad…love ya!

I love that color blue and I had to laugh at the lady bug shot because I took a picture of a lady bug that very same day (it just didn't make the cut).
