It was so nice out yesterday that I decided it was too beautiful of a day to stay inside. So I thought it would be nice to pack a picnic dinner and go to a park to eat. When Aaron got home, we went to Provo's Bicentennial Park and enjoyed a fabulous Chinese chicken salad. Chloe loved being outside and watching the leaves blowing in the wind. She is such a happy baby; I think she must know how much her Mommy and Daddy love her.
After dinner we went on a walk down University Avenue in Provo--Aaron and I love looking at all the old buildings and houses and picturing what they must have looked like back when they were new and vibrant. While we were walking, we came upon some sprinklers that were shooting across the whole sidewalk. We didn't want to get Chloe wet so we walked around them on the grass. Aaron went first and took a big step onto what looked like a sturdy stepping stone only to find out that it was not set firm into the ground and that it had a big puddle of mud underneath it. Mud squished up around the edges and shot all over his feet, legs and shorts. I thought it was hilarious and couldn't help but crack up laughing since I was right next to him but only got one tiny little drop on my foot! I tried to help Aaron see the bright side by telling him that his feet would be nice and cool the rest of our walk. =)
At any rate, it was a wonderful evening together as a family, and it helped us feel like summer had finally arrived here in Utah.
