We have missed attending my niece and nephew’s soccer games, and thought it would be fun to go watch some of the kids’ friends play at the park last Saturday. . . only we got lost looking for the park and ended up driving around for 40 minutes instead.
Defeated, we decided to just go to our favorite park (the double trouble park). Much to our surprise and excitement, there was a carnival going on. Not only did the kids get their faces painted, win two goldfish and get squirted with fire-hoses, but mom and dad came out looking a lot less loser-ish. Yay!
Thanks to whoever was doing that football-league fundraiser. You saved the day!
