We packed a lunch, camera in tow enjoying a quiet afternoon by the river's edge.
The playground was ours exclusively for most of the day.
Sophie used Bear as a shield to protect herself from my camera lens on several occasions.
Bear also doubled as a pillow as Sophie rested in the shade under a sprawling old tree for a short while.
Bear had been to many a Tea Party and really needed a day out!
Bear is several years older now a bit tattered and well loved and hugged!
Very special moments for this Grandma for sure!
We later stopped at a general store, Sophie grabbed a brown bag and picked thru the penny candy which doesn't cost a penny anymore. A routine she is very much familiar with.
She found a funny hat and posed for me what a great kid! Love her so!
Some days you just never forget!
