The boys and I went to Sioux City today to kill some time. There is literally *nothing* to do in Vermillion during the winter (except go to the library, but it's been under construction for forever and the kids' area hasn't opened back up yet) and I've been getting dreadfully bored.
When we got home this afternoon Hudson tried telling Calvin that "We didn't do ANYTHING fun in Sioux City" but I would beg to differ. We looked at all the toys at Target; we ogled the caged animals at the pet store; we ate at Chick Fil A and played in their play zone; we played at the mall; we got cookies; we walked clear to the opposite end of the mall so that Hudson could go up and down the escalator for no reason; we stopped and got Runts out of a gumball machine....basically I did every last thing that Hudson suggested doing. Yet we didn't do anything fun?! C'mon buddy...
Colton played so HARD while we were out. I let him walk everywhere rather than pushing him in a cart or stroller, and that kid can just go-go-go. He was wiped out and fell asleep in the car on the way home.
When the girls got home from school we all played outside because it was above freezing and it felt quite nice. "Nice" is all relative this time of year ;) Give me some sunshine and an above-zero day and I'm a happy camper.
Peyton had another run-in with the "perfs" today so Calvin and I gave her some pointers . My pointers all ended up with kids bleeding or crying...Calvin's were more helpful and sensible. Hopefully she takes my advice. No, no, just kidding.
Those bunch of butt-nuts can just suck it, because THIS girl is perfect to me. I think Colton would agree.
