An Aunty and her Niece

My niece, Katie and I had a special date tonight. Trish and I decided to meet in town, and trade daughters for the evening. She took Mary and I took Katie.

Our first stop was the park. We had the whole place to ourselves.

And we took advantage of it!

There was a little beach front at the park. We relaxed and ate our dinner here. Then we tried our hand at skipping rocks.

We wanted to find a special rock to take home as a little souvenier of our date.

We searched only a short while and then Katie exclaimed, "Aunty Becky! LOOK!"

A special heart rock that was just waiting for us to claim it. Katie washed it off in the water and put it in her pocket.

My sweet Katie-goose,
I hope you always think of our date when you look at your rock. I had a wonderful time with you. It is a memory that I will never forget!

I love you, sugar!

Thanks so much for taking Katie. The pictures are beautiful--send them to me, ok? Mary and I had just as much fun. We have to make this a regular thing!! Katie had a ball--she never stopped talking on the way home. :)
