Drove out to the park by the “lake” with the bébé. She’d fallen asleep on the drive over, so I sat in the car and read Gormenghast while I waited for her to wake up.
We chased gulls and watched the ducks and dogs wiggle their tails. The sand blew in our eyes, so we walked up to the playground. We climbed the stairs, we slid down the slides, we laughed at the kids chasing each other and fighting.
