Flat and Happy!
One of the most difficult parts of staying in a hotel room is not having a kitchen. We usually find some well-priced eats close by. There's a bagel/muffin breakfast included downstairs but if you know my kids......it might as well be 2 Cheerios. They devour it as a starter. Lol!
Busy Bees breakfast diner just across the street was fantastic. Our table looked like we were prepping for winter hibernation and wouldn't see the light of day for a couple months. Look..... I can't help it they serve all pancakes on separate plates. Space issues. Lol!
Later we ran into an area that I think is suppose to be a state park. I assume this based only on a random man in ranger uniform not on the scenery or wildlife. Lol! We did see turtles but I wasn't convicned they were actually alive.
We tried geocaching but once Bauer picked up an old nasty lighter covered in reasons for antibitocs I was DONE! After wiping our hands, face, ears, knees, and any other skin exposed to the recent wilderness wonders of Slime Park we took off to a nearby playground. 2nd round was much much much better. We set up a few American Ninja Warrior courses (both kids won their division - :) ) , fed the birds our snacks, and watched a woman hang what looked like underwear from the swing equipment. Odd. We tried to stay upwind.
"See, Dr. Mulliken, what had happened was........"
A quick ice cream stop and we headed home.
Anytime we travel more than a couple of miles we always take the pack mule!! AKA....the double stroller. We call her Natasha - (the reason why is a whole different story - Lol) It helps tremendously when we have too much to carry or when both kids decide their legs won't work any more. It has taken us to more places than I can name and has never complained.......until today. Natasha was FLAT!! I can't blame her!! 140 lbs of child and random travel supplies would make a buffalo surrender! No worries though. Quick trip to the bike shop and we're back on the road!
NEVER A DULL MOMENT!!! Lol!
Should find out exact surgical times this afternoon.
