a location-specific guide to friday fun.

This idea really only works if you live where we live, but it was an easy fix to a dreary day.

They were arguing out of boredom, so I loaded the kids into the car and planned the destination while we drove.  We crossed the walking bridge at Riverfront Park.  Once we reached the west side, I told the kids to pick up as many sticks as they could carry.  Everett found 3 giant clubs.  Claire found 7 regular sticks.  Everett also found dog poop.  "But I didn't touch it, Mom."  Gold star, buddy.

Then we crossed back over and dropped our sticks into the river.

That's it.  On this day, I was their favorite person ever.
