Oh folks. It’s gonna be a good day. Why? Well, we’re fulfilling this week’s Wishlist Wednesday and sure enough, we’re heading down to the beautiful, blue Lake of the Ozarks and hitting the trails of Ha Ha Tonka State Park. I can’t wait! We’re taking Baby Girl with us so I hope she will cooperate and enjoy the trails as much as we do.
I’ve made up a nice chicken salad (grapes included. Yummy!) and have our lunches packed for our picnic lunch. I am so excited. I can’t remember the last time I had a picnic lunch. Actually, I’m not sure that I’ve ever had a picnic lunch. Or if I did, it’s just been so long that I can’t remember ever having one. Either way, it’s been a long time (or not at all). I’ve got the blanket thrown in the back and Baby Girl’s sunblock in the pack. Hehe. I’m a poet and didn’t know it. I’ve got my heavy-duty, strappy, outdoorsy sandals laced and my bug-eye shades in hand. I’m ready!
The last several summers, we haven’t even been getting good weather until June. I know Easter is almost always cold (if it’s 70 or below, that’s cold to me) and usually Mother’s Day isn’t real warm either. But here we are, a month and a half before Mother’s Day with 90 degree temps. Amazing. I’m really feeling the love of the Lord this year. I think He knew I needed lots of sunshine and outdoor time after the many long, agonizing days I spent inside walking with my colic infant.
Make sure and visit me tomorrow so I can show you all my pics and fill you in on the majesty of Ha Ha Tonka. Hope your Sunday is indeed a fun day! Pan
