Children Are Stupendous

Today my little son and I did a little outdoor redecorating. We pushed and pulled a little old two-step staircase into the middle of a "gazebo" that was left naked after the removal of a defunct spa.

Then we hung up a string of hanging beads. My little one dragged the shiny multicolored beads behind him on the grass and announced, "Peacock!" So now we have a peacock hanging in front of our gazebo (crude drawing alert, just can't get the camera-uploading together):

The space has potential for future picnics, but for now, we use it to just sit quietly and (optionally) meditate, or as the baby likes to say, "Om."
