A Bad Day

The only positive thing that happened today was that we finally took the kids to a playground. Of course, we only did this because library time was a failure. But ignoring the cigarette butts and other random trash the kids found, the trip was a lot of fun.

Later, while playing at Nana and Pop Pop's house, things got worse. Arthur wandered off. Nana found his dolly by a side gate, evidently where he had dropped it to open the gate (and close it behind him). She found him far in front of the house, standing on the high bank of the creek (dry at the moment), where his basketball had fallen earlier in the day. We immediately put up some fencing and a driveway barrier along this area (which we had intended to do this Spring).

So we were quite thankful to put the excitement of this day behind us. We loaded up all the kids into their carseats for the trip back to our house. Then I put the minivan in reverse and backed directly into Nana and Pop Pop's car.
