The best days of autumn

Today was the most gorgeous day we'd seen in a long time. It made the frigid temperatures of last week disappear and injected a new energy in our steps. We forewent our usual lazy Sunday and left the house early to enjoy the day.

After a quick breakfast at McDonald's (Maya's choice, not ours), we headed to the lake for a walk. We spent most of our time wandering along the pier gazing at the water. It's so much fun to do the things we had previously done alone as a couple with Maya. It's like seeing everything through a new set of eyes. Everything is magical and innocent and possible. Maya had a wonderful time making friends with the ducks and geese swimming around by the pier, and she couldn't stop chattering on in amazement about the "glittering" water. We ran into some weekend fishermen who were trying to lure some pike and bass, and they patiently showed Maya the rods and bait they were using. Our afternoon ended with a quiet walk around our neighbourhood and some play time in the park at the end of the street. All in all, not a bad way to spend a Sunday.
