Joy comes in the morning.

 My mommas group met at the park on Thursday. It was so good for Kate and I to get out of the house and enjoy precious friends and enjoy all the young little lives that we have. The last thing I want to do it sit and be sad. We started our afternoon on the train. Kate loved it even though she looks extremely grump in this picture. She has mastered "the look".

She loved seeing all the duckies and peacocks. 

I can't describe the joy this little one brings to our hearts. She has helped ease the pain that I've experienced this past week. There is nothing sweeter than little ones who are so innocent and pure.

 We had a little picnic lunch which there are no pictures from because I threw food in my mouth and was chasing after Kate the whole time. It didn't help that we ate right next to the horses. My girl loves the nay nays.
 And praise the Lord! My girl finally has hair long enough for her own piggies!!!
 Ahh, I've waited for this day forever! 

She loves the kak kaks...
After waving bye bye to the ducks we went and played on the playground. It was Kate's first time and she had the time of her life. She got the biggest rush going down the slide. 

Me on the other hand, not so much. I had to scoot myself all the way down. Pretty sure these slides weren't made for people who have birthed children.
 Or maybe it's all the chocolate that I've been eating..
 Either way, it was a sight watching me trying to get down this thing.
I love Irvine Park It only costs $3 per car to get in on the weekdays. Train rides are $4 a person, there are pony rides, bikes and paddle boats, a zoo and hiking trails. 
Chris and I would go there a lot when we were dating for bike rides and picnics and every time we went I was sure he was going to propose so I could never really enjoy it. Not sure why I had that thought in my head {he didn't propose there} but it's funny to look back on. Never thought I would be taking our baby there with sweet friends years later and taking train rides and playing on the jungle gym. 

Life is grand. 
You only get one shot, so make it count.
