Lately the girls have been asking lots of questions about how their daddy proposed to me, how I met him, did I think he was handsome? What did my wedding dress look like. Did he get down on one knee?
We decided to go to Central Park and play today. Somehow they started with their little questions again so I said "why don't I just show you where it all went down".
So, off to the crime scene we went. I love this picture of them. They are really becoming best friends this week. I see it happening slowly, but surely. Summer always starts off rough for them but then they get use to being together all the time. I picture them in their 20's walking around Manhattan hopefully still enjoying their time together.
When we got to the park they started begging for an ice cream. I said I wouldn't pay for it so my 7 year old whips out a ten dollar bill and says "then I will!" She even bought one for her sister.
Little miss Alice is such a great little traveler. She easy going.
When we arrived at "Bethesda Fountain" I told them this is where it all happened.
They decided to throw in a penny and make a wish (again, compliments of big sister). They wouldn't tell me what they wished for.
I love the tiles in the arcade at Bethesda Terrace. We sat in the arcade and I told them all the sweet little details of when mommy and daddy got engaged.
I told them how he planned a picnic but it rained so he took me out for sushi instead. I told them that he was my best friend and I couldn't imagine spending my life with anyone else. I told them that he did get down on one knee and that poor little knee landed on a very sharp rock. I told them that I hope that they make wise choices when they grow up.
Then miss Lucy let out a big sigh.
Ok fine, let's go play.
