It was so beautiful today. Even though it was a school night we headed out to park to let the girls run and play. In southern Illinois you never know when the ‘last’ nice day will be, so we try to take advantage of each one. Before we know it there will be a foot a snow out there and that means we will be stuck indoors more. There are several parks very close to where we live. We decided to go to one of the more established and older parks that have large trees that are always full of color. I spread out an old blanket I store in the trunk of my car and let the girls run around, pick flowers and play in what may be the last drop of warm sunlight for the year.
