trying out stilts at park day
selling kid-made art instead of lemonade at a stand in friends' neighborhood
picking up Papa from work with a "surprise" car party on his birthday, complete with balloons, streamers, and cupcakes
and a birthday party with bounce-house fun that continued past dark with glow sticks.
Our country days were full too, but with a much different flavor.

finding funny faces and other food art
more country bike rides and picking apples from our trees
and trying to stay cool at the state park swimming beach
In our lives we sometimes find balance through alternating extremes rather than a more static right-in-the-middle type of balance. I kind of like it that way.
