"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2013."

the 52 project: 8/52.


As sunshine spread warmth over the day, we undertook an excited trip to Stanley Park Saturday morning, first walking in the {empty} rose garden, then by the lake and finally oceanside, where we should have started at the outset (our daughter has an ocean in her heart after all!). Standing in the sand Gracie threw rocks with Sean while we marvelled at the many people running/biking/walking/skating along the seawall. Seeing everyone out made us remember that it's there, that we need to take advantage of this world class city amenity (read: extensive picnic planning underway).

Pinecones shaped like bananas, Gracie's penchant for being carried, the way she says "oow-shin" each time she sees the Pacific, running to show Sean each of her treasures, breath visible while quacking at the Stanley Park ducks, expansive sky - these are a few of the things I will remember about this day.
