My dad is visiting from Ohio, so my dad, brother, hubby, Lil Bucky and I went to Forest Park. The weather was absolutely perfect - bright sun, 75 degrees, no wind... We took a couple of long walks, played on the playground, rode the carosuel, ate SNO CONES, watched a baseball game. Lil Bucky squealed with delight as his Uncle Paul ran down the path while pulling his wagon. He happily found a sea of dirty rocks to play with and I had to let go of my OCD (ah - dirty hands!) and let him just play. Watching him laugh and play with the sun shining on his face was definitely Today's Perk.
