The kids and I are in Cedar Falls visiting my parents this week. It is a regular trip for us; we try to visit once a month.
This morning we tried a new park. It’s at an elementary school in town, so the kids are a little small for it. Just don’t tell them that.
After the park the kids had filthy feet. Crocs and wood chips do not play nice together. Elliot was OK having his feet washed, but Audrey threw a HUGE fit. In the midst of her epic meltdown he was offering ways to wash her feet. He could throw her in the river. He could hose her off. She could wash her feet in the bird bath.
Well, she jumped all over the bird bath idea. Dad had to follow through.
After the excitement this morning both kids are now sleeping soundly. I might take a nap too.
