Last night I had this great idea! I had the idea of playing Hide and Go Seek in the dark with the kids. Best idea of the summer I think. It wasn't too hot, it was perfect! We even got my husband to play. It was funny because he was it first, and he thought I had hide right around the corner (I was actually behind a bush further back). He jumped out from in front of the house growling like a bear, thinking he had just scared me and my daughter. Actually the only thing he did was make me crack up, because he did that and no one was there, but I did have front row seats to it. Ha Ha!
My husband is a pretty good size guy. He is 6'4 and about 200 pounds of muscle, and here he is trying to hide behind a tree! So here is this tree, with an obvious person sticking out from behind it. Then of course, I found the perfect hiding spot! They couldn't find me for nothing! In order to hide there again, I kind of walked out when nobody was paying attention and showed up right beside them. They kept asking me where I was, but I'll never tell :)
We played that game for a good hour, and it was about 9:30 so the kids were in their PJ's. We sure did tire them out though, once we went inside and put them to bed we didn't hear one sound. Then today, I was just relaxing at home sitting on the porch doing a crossword puzzle for a good while. It was soo nice out!! This weather is weird here, one day it's in the 70's the next in the 100's. Wish it would make up it's mind. Today it's in the 80'.
I took the kids to a water park and after an hour they were ready to go home. Now they are sitting around watching the Disney Channel. I swear, you can't get them outside for anything! When I was little I use to be outside from sun up to sun down, especially during the summers. Heck, I go outside more than the kids do. That's insane, but so true. It's like a punishment when I say "ok guys lets go outside and play." Lol!! The say it's too hot! Those crazy kids... but you gotta love them :) Me, I will still sit outside doing crosswords or read a book. I love summer days and summer nights!
