Thursday it snowed. Quite a bit actually. I could barely see as I was driving to the store to search for organic fruits and vegetables, it was snowing that hard. Luckily it was still fairly warm out (a few degrees above freezing) so the snow wasn’t really sticking to the ground.
By Friday the snow had melted.
Today my kids put on shorts and we headed down to the park.
This weather is just crazy. No wonder my asthma and sinuses are totally out of whack.
We have a small park just a couple blocks from our house. It has some playground equipment with a couple of slides, some swings and a big wading pool (which is empty until after Memorial Day). We go to this park all the time, but this was the first time we’ve been there this year.
As soon as we got there I noticed some new artwork. Somebody had spray painted words on the playground equipment. Bad words. It’s pretty sad that people thinks it’s funny to vandalize a park where young children play. Freaking teenage punks.
I tried to ignore the words hoping the kids wouldn’t notice them. But I wasn’t that lucky. I don’t think Spencer or Caleb noticed them, but Skyler sure did.
“Mom. There are bad words on the slide,” she said.
She continued, “Why did you bring us here. This is no place for children.”
She’s way too smart for her own good.
So excuse me while I scour the internet to figure out how to remove spray paint from playground equipment.
