I have been saying "No" a lot this year. With all of the work we're doing on the house, unless the outing is something we have committed to attend, I tend to tell the family no.
The other day, for a bunch of odd reasons, I couldn't work on the house at all. I decided to say "Yes!"
First, we went to the library.
Where we played for 4 hours.
There was a splash pad, too, and though we didn't bring swimsuits, that didn't stop anyone from playing anyway.
Even this funny girl took a few turns cooling off in the spray when she needed a break from her book.
It was a fun day and it was so nice to say yes for a change.
Now, back to work!
