Simple family time
Tonight we had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, The Boot, and afterward we hung out on the lawn at The Preserve. It was a simple way to spend the evening that provided a lot of humor.
When the girls started their usual routine of, "Mom... Mom... Mom... Mom...," I offered them $100 if they could catch a bird. That worked for a little while until it turned into: "Dad, how much money will you give me if I can lift this rock?" ... "How about if I can rip this tree out of the ground?"
At that point, we realized our relaxing time had come to an end. It's probably for the best. The entire time we were there, two little girls across the street kept screaming "Be quiet!" at us over and over again, even though we weren't really making any noise. I don't know what their problem was.
