Just as I suspected yesterday, Madelyn was free for the afternoon, and as I anticipated, I absolutely couldn't run my errands without a two year old, so it worked out pretty good for us. Before all the fun, I went out for what's turning into my weekly pilgrimage to Dana, just to check on those cramps, but they're pretty confident that it's nothing cancer related.....most likely an alien or some undiscovered species burrowing into my abdomen. No biggy. I then picked up the cutest 2 year old on the planet who happens to be.... MADDY! We took the car in for an oil change, she helped me pick out a fake boobie, which I like better then the original, we had a fabulous snack of edemame at Osaka and topped off the afternoon with a walk down to McKinstry pond. We ate cherries on the dock and watched the pits slowly disappear into the green algae. Maddy can through a cherry pit far far. The sun was so crisp and the gentle breeze made the moment perfect. She was right there with me, truly there in every way. We walked around to the other side where we could throw rocks into the water. We could have stayed there forever, but a guy rolled up in his truck brandishing a fishing pole. To our great surprise, he caught a bass on his first cast out. He reeled it in nice and slow, took it off the hook and let Maddy touch it. She was thrilled. We stayed for 3 more fishies and then headed home when we saw Ted driving Charly home. Since we had so much fun with last nights treehouse pick nick, we did it again. Perfect:) Now all I need is a foot massage from a Spanish world cup soccer player and I'll call it a day.
