Lithia Park: Sprinklers, and Photos, and Perky Butts

Posted on
Oct 3, 2013

Some days, you go for a walk.

And you try to take a photo of yourself with your sweetie, since you don’t have any from this, your anniversary trip. But it’s not quite right. Your smile looks forced.

Or there’s a stranger with a distractingly perky posterior in the background.

Or he tries to kiss you and it’s garflesnargle …

The point is: the photos just aren’t happening. You want to take another one, but he’s getting kind of restless.

And then he tells you that he needs to run through the sprinklers.

So he does.

When he comes back, and you take a few more photos.

And the smile isn’t forced. (Oh, and the woman with the perky posterior has vanished, too.)

And everything is kinda perfect.

  • Incredible reading by the love of my life to a packed room at NeueHouse Madison Square. So proud of you, @randderuiter, and the amazing emcee work by @michaeliconking.
  • Re-posting this photo that @wilreynolds took of us and his youngest near the beach outside of Lisbon. We're back home now, and I can't decide what I miss more: this little guy and his brother, or Portugal. Actually, scratch that. I know.
  • This place looks like a damn fairy tale.
  • Lunch with a view of the water, and some of the best seafood of my life.
  • The entire drive from Sintra to Lisbon looks like this. It's just miles of blue sky and rocky beaches.
  • No filter. This is just what Sintra looks like.
  • This street artist does amazing collages of animals from hunks of discarded plastic he collects (part of an effort to raise awareness about some of the most vulnerable victims of pollution). They're all over Lisbon, but we managed to get a close up view of this one.
  • Thousand watt smile on the little dude, and I am done.
  • Those eyes though.
