I'd like a wifi booster/relay so that I can sit in the park and work

I have an Mac airport express base station next to the cable modem downstairs. I'd like to sit in my local park and work on my Macbook. Where I sit is about 100 metres away, with a direct line-of-sight to the upstairs of the house, give or take the odd tree branch and squirrel. What I think I need, therefore, is a basic booster station in an upstairs window, that overlooks this park. What options do I have? Any advice appreciated!

Currently, the signal from the ground floor has to go through several masonry walls to get to the park, and is spotty. I'm just confused as to the options. What I probably don't want (I think) is to do is suck signals into the laptop in a better way, as this would involve a dongle for the laptop, and I'd rather keep the hardware in the house. Many thanks!
