Summer: Day 17

What I had planned on doing yesterday was to go play at the splash pad/water feature at Liberty Park. What I failed to remember was that it was a Tuesday, and that means everyone would be at the same park using the Pass of All Passes at Tracy Aviary. See why it wasn't as desirable as I once thought?
I always want to do things, but I really didn't feel like taking the kids out by myself. I didn't have it in me. All I had to do was mention to Paul that I wanted to have him come, and he had the afternoon planned out. I feel lucky to have him around, he makes my life pretty easy. 
After I showered and got ready at 3 PM {don't judge}, we were on our way. We hit up Boondocks, and were only slightly disappointed. They have a deal on Tuesdays that if you don't buy a wrist band, you can only play certain games. It is odd, but we were already there, and why not play. They do have a really good arcade, and still managed to spend all of our tokens.
I wanted to do a picnic, but we opted for Smashburger...and eating on the patio instead. The kids weren't disappointed, probably because we had shakes. Oh, and I let Devin bring his whoopie cushion in. {The other reason why I decided on patio seating.}

Since I had told the kids we might be going swimming today, I made good on my promise when we got home. We turned on the sprinklers for them to run through.
We made it through another day, and I may just find my motivation and courage to take the kids out today by myself.
