these photos are from yesterday in the early evening when we decided to ignore our usual more structured dinner and early bedtime routine and head down to the west village for our favorite joe’s pizza, popsicles from popbar and of course plenty of playground time at one of our favorite nearby spots.  it felt so good to be together doing something we have done countless times before during the warmer months of the year. ...
