More photos from Tuesday’s trip to Lynch Park. The light was just so gorgeous that morning, I couldn’t put the camera down. I do hope there are parks near our new home as beautiful as the ones near here.

She’s singing Cottleston Pie right now. Except that it sounds like “cottes and cottes and cottes and cottes of pie”. Oh how that warms the cockles of my heart. She’s learned how to turn doorknobs.
