Our local coffee shop has an outdoor story time once a month during the summer. In these parts, that means just three times. Last month Daughter and I went on a whim while Husband brought our garbage to my mom’s. (That’s another story for another time.) That first story time was delightful and the weather was beautiful and Daughter loved the free smoothie. We went again tonight, this time all three of us. We had dinner there, on the grass. The mosquitos ignored us. The crowd was large. The smoothie was so good it blocked me out of the picture. Success.
