Joey's day off

The first day of spring was also Joey's first day off in a longgg time. And it was a beautiful day. We spent all day out on foot. I took photos.

But first. Look who lost another tooth.

Aren't toothless children simply adorable? It makes their cheeks look so much more pinchable, for some reason.

We got coffee and decided that it was the sort of day that you decide to take a detour, just to see what things you've been missing going the same route all the time. We found ourselves behind a warehouse, crossing train tracks. It was an undiscovered graffiti mecca.

Joey is a handsome, handsome man. He looks hot in front of graffiti.

Tania found some rocks to poke at, while Joey and I examined the graffiti more closely.

How fun is this homage to Bukowski? There's even a stencil of his face. See it?

This funny man is tickling someone's feet.

It's like an ostrich-bear-goat.

Just some cool looking stuff.

I like this writing, and I'm really liking characters like his one lately.

This was so funny! It has sort of a creepy Children of the Corn vibe to it. Or Boxcar Children gone bad.

More characters that I'm really into right now.

Darth Vader and paper cranes. Sweet.

Revenge of the hearta-pus! This should be in Heartopia! Bwa-ha-ha!!!

Well, after the graffiti, we walked on to visit several antique stores and children's stores. Here's my hot husband again wearing Talula in a baby carrier. (It's a Baby Hawk carrier.)

Could it be a better day to walk? Look at the sky!

And signs of spring were everywhere! Dandelions, flowers, squirrels, birds...they all came out to play.

It was a great day for swinging.

And a great day for sipping on an icy cold IPA.

And a nice day for having a fancy picnic outside.

Ahhh...we had such a great day. But alas, we are all sick now! Poor little Lu is all stuffed up and has been sleeping ever since we got home from a knitting group. She's woken up to nurse, but then she goes right back to sleep. I'm not feeling so hot myself, but I usually only get sick for a day, so I'm optimistic about it.

'Til next time.
