The Glamourous Life

With the hot temperatures of late, I've taken my Granddaughter out to enjoy a shady park and play in the water. I have to admit, it brought me back many years to when I took my own two children to the park for the day. Twenty-five years ago we usually took the ferry across to Toronto Island and exhausted ourselves there for the entire day.

So off Kya and I went to the park with two beach bags with an assortment of towels, lotion, sunglasses, hats, ...... everything a couple of girls need to enjoy the sun and water.

Lunch in the bag included all of Kya's favourites, like strawberries....................

And of course a hot summer day wouldn't be complete without a stop for ice cream.

'The Blue Blanket' has been on many outings and has moved to the trunk of pretty much every car I've owned. My kids and I would drag the blue blanket with us to sit on at the grass when we watched the fireworks shows at Ontario Place. We took it with with us on every outing  {and it's survived many washings}.

Although it's been years since the blanket was used for a picnic and mainly has been tucked away in the car as an 'emergency blanket'; it was comforting to sit on the blanket with my Granddaughter and repeat the same activities that I did with my own children. Kya looks so much like her Mommy that it makes me step back in time to see her sitting and eating her picnic lunch. My heart was brimming.

We both came home exhausted and satisfied with our day in the water and the sun,........ on our blue blanket. There will be many more days like this together.

And I know without a doubt, that life doesn't get much better than this.

It is a Glamourous Life.
