September Celebration

We had the longest, hottest, nastiest summer ever this year.  It was just endless.  But September?  It has been the perfect month.  We have had an entire month of sunny skies and temperatures in the 70's and low 80's.  It just doesn't get any better!  So to celebrate the last day of a gorgeous month we stopped by our local carry-out-only hamburger joint and took a picnic to the park.
And then we just played.
Well, played and struck cheesy poses for the camera.
And Mom didn't enforce the usual school rules, so going down the slide head-first was acceptable.  And way more fun.
Rachel the Determined (or Rachel the Daredevil) insisted on going up the 7 foot tall climbing wall by herself.  And did.
Eventually things got kind of silly, with lots of giggling and sitting on each other.
But it was the perfect way to end a beautiful month.  Goodbye, September!
