Veterans Park

I spent last Sunday night at Courtney's house. Dave had a death in his family and had to go to Pensacola for the funeral and Courtney had to fly to Washington at 6:00 AM Monday morning. So.....I was there to take up the slack between YMCA Camp, Lily's nanny, Dave returning home and Courtney coming back home the same day.

At the end of the day, Monday, I decided to take Lawson to Veterans Park, down the road from Courtney and Dave's house, to run off a little steam and then told him we would stop and get an ice cream cone.




and just for good measure ...here is Miss Lilypie....sucking her thumb

and now for a little piece of mine and Lawson's conversation as he played in the shallow stream at the park......

Lawson ---- MeMe, do you still see some minnows?

MeMe ---- Yes, they are right over here. Look at them...they get bigger the further down the stream we go.... as the water gets a little deeper

Lawson (intently watching minnows) ---- Let's go down here and see if we see any

MeMe ---- No, we can't go any farther....it is snaky looking!

Lawson ---- No, MeMe not snakes.....ALLIGATORS.....and you would have to fight them and you would die!

MeMe ---- Well, we aren't going any farther but....if MeMe saw an alligator I would try to fight it.....just like those Swamp People

Lawson ---- Sorry, MeMe, but you would die!

MeMe (very seriously) ---- Lawson, MeMe would always fight as hard as she could to live in any situation ( thinking...how did I get into this conversation??)

Lawson ----  Well, just face it MeMe, you would die!

MeMe  (getting a little exasperated) ----  why do you keep saying that I would die???

Lawson ---- Because....MeMe (wait on it.......)  YOU ARE OLD OLD OLD!!!
