Yesterday morning, Devin was running a bit late, so we offered to drive him to work.
Unfortunately, traffic was really bad, and I think he probably would have gotten there faster if he would have walked.
Fortunately, the kids and I were now outside and all dressed, so we took advantage of that fact and decided to make use of a lovely, sunshiny, cool morning (before the heat set in) and go to a park! I've been wanting to go to the Liberty Bell park and see the Liberty Bell knock-off, so off we went!
We found it easily enough, and lucked out with some great parking. The kids were able to play and play! They got to swing on the swings and climb through the maze of slides and tunnels... (My favorite was when Josh got into the baby swing and said, "Come push me, Mommy!" in a very silly voice. I said no, but PETER got off of his swing so he could go push his big brother! SO CUTE!!)
It was a nice morning, and then we were able to come home and enjoy the A/C for the rest of the day! I finished a really good book ('The Shuttle' by Frances Hodgson Burnett--author of The Secret Garden and 'A Little Princess'--it didn't disappoint! Go read it!) while the kids played. We made some food so we could have some friends over for dinner. We spent all evening with good friends.
You can't ask for a better day than that.
