No trip to Sewickley would be complete without a visit to the Ultimate Pastry Shop for cookies. YUM.
We ended our field trip with a stop at War Memorial Park for some racing around the grounds and down the crazy slides, throwing rocks into the stream, and climbing trees. I really wish I had brought along my camera to document the day, but it looked so gloomy that I left it in the car. We take this fun trip often, so I'll make sure I capture it next time.
The sun hid behind the clouds much of the morning and one of the boys struggled with a bakery shop tantrum, but in God's grace the good always outweighs the bad, doesn't it? I'm grateful for a sweet day spent with my kids and dear friends.
"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord.
My soul shall be joyful in my God."
