We are experiencing some cooler temperatures here in Birmingham. Part of me wants to say finally, but I'm afraid that is only because I am tired of my clothes and I want to wear slacks and not feel hot as I get in and out of the car running here, there, and yonder.
The cooler weather makes me want to enjoy time outside with my children. Last weekend Frank made a trip to Dallas to surprise his aunt for her 60th birthday. That left me here with the kiddos, and I wanted to do something fun and out of the ordinary.
For awhile now, I have been wanting to go to Moss Rock Preserve so that was the outing that I planned. I was met with complete resistance! They whined, and cried, and complained as I made our picnic. The grumbled and bickered the entire drive. No one wanted to go!
But I did and their behavior was not going to get me to change my mind. It only fueled my fire that this was going to happen.
And it did...
Betsy was ecstatic. She literally squealed when I took out the baby backpack and started to put her in it.
