A Lovely Spring Day

Zane is feeling better, after another itchy night, his hives finally seem to be going away.  He actually slept until 10am, amazingly.  This was good, because Larry and I needed some sleep too!  So after we woke up we took Zane to Sea Island for some lunch.  Zane got to play while the food was being prepared, and he ate a lot of food, at least until he tried shoving an entire french fry in his mouth and swallowed.  He gagged, and then spit up all over the rest of his food.  He was none the worse for wear, and as far as I could tell we didn't ruin anyone else's appetite.  We cleaned him up, and then he ate more fries off of his daddy's plate. 

After lunch, Zane wanted to play some more, but it seemed to be too windy at Sea Island so we took him to the park at Live Oak.  We were the only ones there, and Zane had a blast running all over the place, climbing, sliding down the slide, and just exploring.  His biggest excitement came when he saw three black butterflies who seemed to be playing together.  They were black with some blue markings on the lower part of the wings, near as I could tell.   The butterflies swirled around him, and Zane held his hands out and chattered excitedly.  It seemed like the butterflies were inviting Zane to play!  It was exciting to see Zane so excited--I can't even remember the last time I got that excited about a simple part of nature like butterflies. It would be nice to be able to access those feelings of sheer joy in experiencing the world, wouldn't it?
