Homegirl was in heaven.
The night was perfection: dance contests, pony rides (where she was so very brave), ferris wheels, free ice cream (for winning the dance contest), bumper cars, and getting a cool prize when her strong daddy swung the mallet and nearly broke the bell... that last one might be an exaggeration, but that's how I'm choosing to remember it. And I want Cricket to remember it, too. I want her memories full of summer nights of such unwavering, joyful perfection.
Here's to many more :)
