This past Christmas, Wendy was given a Radio Flyer wagon by Grandma & Grandpa, and a canopy for the wagon from Great-Grandma & Great-Grandpa. We've used the wagon many times, but I hadn't been brave enough to try to put the canopy together. With the sun getting warmer every day, I decided I had put it off long enough - and it wasn't difficult at all!
We celebrated by taking a short walk around the school parking lot - you can see the school in the background. (That may sound lame, but there are no sidewalks on our street, and people just fly up and down it, so it's not really safe for walking.) Bear also came along for the ride, and he was safely buckled in across from Wendy.
Doesn't the look on her face express pure childhood joy? Here's a closeup:
I'm going to store that face, snotty nose and all, in my memory, as a reminder of what a precious gift she is.
