He wanted to use my binoculars, so I took him out to the screened porch to look for birds. We filled the feeders to entice them to come visit and waited patiently for their arrival. Jamison was fascinated with the way the binoculars made everything look so much bigger and spied on the neighbors' flowers, a truck and a few birds in the trees, but none came onto the deck. I then showed him how those little seed pods that fall all over the place, spin when you drop them and that I call them helicopters. He had a blast, collecting them from the deck and dropping them over the edge, then imitating how they spun. We "decorated" the porch with his big sidewalk chalk (thankfully it washes right off) and arranged my sea shells into an old basket, before getting out the giant bubble wand. Jamison loves blowing bubbles and he laughs and squeals while chasing them around. We had many important conversations, sang a few silly songs and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!

It really doesn't take much to brighten a day. Sometimes, the simplest of things can have the most meaning, and sharing them with a loved one makes them extra special. I'm looking forward to our next outing, as soon as it stops raining again! Have a joyful day! ~Leena~
