This Is What We Do

We are park people.

Martin and I have been going to the park since we were in high school. It was our place to escape, to learn about each other, to fall in love. Sometimes we go to the park to catch up on a week's worth of conversations. Sometimes we go to have a serious conversation that we've been meaning to have for a while. Sometimes we go and act silly and feel like we're in high school again. Sometimes we go and are quiet as we sit and people watch. Sometimes we go and just lay next to each other in the grass and close our eyes. 

I can't help but think that in a few short months we will be able to bring the newest addition to our family with us. It will feel different when it's not just the two of us anymore.  It may not be as simple as it was before...throwing a blanket in the car at a moments notice will be replaced by a stroller, diaper bag, and all things baby.  But as time passes, I hope that our daughter will come to enjoy the simplicity of an afternoon at the park.  And I hope she knows someday how special these moments will be for our little family.
