Last Friday, it was miserable outside. It was awfully humid, threatening to rain with lots of thunder ad some lightening, but the skies were not actually spitting anything out. The children had tons of energy and were stir crazy. Unfortunately my mini-van was in the shop AGAIN, so we were limited to a small set of choice destinations. I grabbed the umbrellas and told the little ones to march out of the house. I was sick of whining and we were going to a walk, come hades, high water, or Noah on his ark.
