We were blessed with a warm winter day today. Low 70′s without a cloud in the sky. I had promised the kids we’d go get their haircut today and they made sure they reminded me each and every day for the past week. It wasn’t so much they wanted their haircut, they just wanted the lollipop that comes at the end.
Afterwards, we headed across the outdoor mall and dined at Hot Dog on a Stick. After wolfing down our food and lemondade, I wiped up some ketchup-smeared faces and we headed over to the oudoor fountain. This was the highlight of the day and the kids were so excited to run free through the fountain. I had packed an extra shirt for each along with a towel but that was it. I asked them not to get drenched. “Just run around the water shoots, okay?” I implored. “Okay, Daddy.” They dutifully replied.
Apparently my definition of “drenched” and their definition are not one and the same. Oh well. We survived and it was really nice to sit in the warmth of the sunlight and watch Swee’Pea and TheMonk squeal with laughter. Something that hasn’t been heard in spades lately.
It felt good.
