when i got home, it was time for a little family home evening. it didn't quite go how i had planned, but it ended up being just as good as i had imagined it. we strolled around gardner village, got some goodies, and then went on a nice walk down on the parkway. brooklyn could have walked the whole trail by herself if she wasn't so interested in all the rocks and leaves off the trail. she loved being outside and having lots of room to wander. she cried when we picked her up at the end and made her get in the car. darn it. these summer nights are winding down and we're trying to cherish every last one.
