An hour with a firetruck
The kids' library books were due today (and I sadly let some videos go past due.. so I needed to pay a fee.. boo). So, I got the kids out right when the library was opening (10am). Pull in the parking lot and it's already crowded. "Hmm, I wonder what is going on here?" Then I see little people running around in swimsuits. "Uh oh. This can't be good." Go inside and return books, pay the fee and then quickly get the kids to go find new books. I figured we could get the books and get out before the water activity (didn't know what it was at the time) started. Well, then I ran into a friend and her son from church. We start talking and she convinced me that I needed to get the kids swimsuits. So we rush home and rush back. The kids had a blast. The library had two firetrucks there for the kids to check out and one of the trucks had it's ladder with a hose pulled up high with the water pouring down. Something so simple made my kids very happy. We all had a good time. They played and I got to have some adult conversation. Bonus!
