a city adventure

kids playing outdoor electronic gameGracie had a lunch date with Nate today, and instead of heading home afterwards, we decided to stick around downtown.  After struggling to agree on a spot to spend the afternoon, the kids told me to “just decide.”  So I took them on a surprise city adventure!  Our first move was to hop on a bus, which always brings back good memories for me.  Judah joked about licking the bus since that’s what he did when he was a toddler.  We eventually made it to one of the city’s green spaces and played a bit.
