It was 86 and HOT today (and I'm most definitely not complaining as it is SUMMER) so what better thing to do than to go to where you can see the heat rising from the ground, where your kids tushes get burned on plastic, where there is absolutely no shade to speak of and where the ice cream truck comes purposely and religiously at 5:00 to either ensue a ridiculous tantrum for not getting ice cream or to ruin my kids dinner? Yes, you guessed it, the PLAYGROUND! Or as Hannah calls it, "the playing ground". It was not my first choice activity this afternoon but Hannah wanted to "go somewhere" since her brand new big girl booster seat had been installed in the car and it was the only place I could think of going that was close to home and free. Plus with Luke's new walking thing, it's nice that he's able to be part of the action.
