Yesterday was a beautiful day. I managed to
I decided to go to a nearby nature center, and take the kids on a hike. We have done this in the past, and it is a nice walk and a beautiful trail. I did however warn them that if we saw a snake, that I could be found back at the start of the trail, because I would surely high tail it out of there. I also gave them the "tick" talk. You know the one...the one that goes like this:
"Often times there are these little bugs called ticks that live in trees and out there "in nature". They are tiny and they will attach themselves to you and stick their head in your skin and suck your blood."
I laugh at my sick sense of humor. But it is true. They do!
It became all Audrey could talk about the entire walk. "What if it sucks ALL my blood?" "What if I accidentally scratch it's body off and it's head stays in my skin?" "What if....what if....what if...."
Then I shake my head at my stupid sense of humor.....
The walk started off awesome. The kids were having fun, it was beautiful out, blah blah blah.
And then, it became harder. "It's hot! My legs are tired! I HATE NATURE!"
Seriously. See what I get for "doing something". Seriously again. Why bother...but I kept going. :)
I managed to capture 15 seconds without a complaint or a whine. Ahhh, sweet success, I'd say.
