It’s been one of those days, filled with sunshine and sweet family moments, that I’d like to bottle up and savor for years to come. We woke early and made a pie to share with friends. Then we left for church; Phoebe fell asleep 1 minute from the building, so we downloaded a sermon to listen to in the car and hit HWY 16. We drove West until the highway ended in Gorst, turned around and headed back to Tacoma, through the September foliage and Washington evergreens. On the way back home, we detoured at Point Defiance Park, shared a sandwich at the duck pond, and explored the flower gardens. A lovely day.
PART ONE: Lemon Meringue Pie, made from scratch
PART TWO: Dahlias in the Park
(For the record, we didn’t pick any of the dahlias at Point Defiance Park, today. But there was one on the ground, already severed from the stem; this is the one Phoebe is holding in the pictures, and afterwards, we placed it back on the curb of the flower plot.)
