An Absurdly Nice Weekend
I even made a gluten free chocolate cream pie from my new favorite cook book. It was a successful experiment. Even the crust was delicious. Four adults and one baby ate two and a half pounds of coconut curry chicken.
Today we spent the morning at Revere Beach with the same family that we had dinner with last night. Then Eric and Rich went to the Construction Site Waltham on the commuter rail to buy birthday presents while Kaylee napped. When they got back we went to a new park in Cambridge. It was a newfangled park with an elaborate sprinkler that filled up swaying buckets that would eventually tip and gush water onto the asphalt. The ladder up to the big kid structure twisted and curved. The swings looked like saucers that could accommodate about five kids. Eric was stymied by the straight-up climbing wall. But he found lots of stuff to do.
The park abutted a ball field with unbelievably thick grass. Eric flew a kite and Kaylee chased around the myriad dogs that galumphed around. She's a dog person, apparently.
It was one of those days where my heart lurched and felt so full of love that I thought I would fall over from the weight of it.
But that is not a bad feeling.
