I told you to wait upstairs while you were playing so I could prepare a surprise for us...
a picnic lunch!
You love surprises.
All through lunch I watched your sparkling eyes pace with anticipation
back and forth from the "go fish" cards to the desert waiting for us.
At one point you declared, "well, i think this is my best day ever!"
And I think any day with you is a best day for me. :)
(Warm gingerbread marshmallows and chocolate squares
between sugar cookies never hurts either.)
