It was one of those days.
We needed an oil change and that was only the beginning of a list of errands that needed to be done.
Not fun errands either.
But the bonus (read:bribe) at the end of the list was a long bike ride at the park.
The beginning of the ride was great, but the end looked like this.
So to top off a boring, frustrating day we were rained out of our bike ride and left wet & soggy.
I had prepared to grill that night.
Aggh, it wasn't getting better.
We drove through rainy traffic to Ikea. Surely a parking garage and some Swedish meatballs could cure this bad day!
Ikea was having some lame Summer celebration that required advance reservations.
The baby was fussing, the traffic was building. I was retreating home with hungry, whiny kids.
Suddenly Tyler spotted the rainbow.
The conversation turned to the wonders of nature.
And my troubles melted as I saw the world through their eyes and learned another lesson on perspective.
Because to them the day was all about adventure, fun, and wonder...
