Ick. I was so excited for Natalie to have a week off from preschool this week...why?? We are so bored and it's only Monday! We didn't go out today for fear of getting caught in the "rain" that was supposed to happen today, and tomorrow the forecast predicts more of the same! The one thing that drives me nuts is being holed up in the house all day, and for some reason this town doesn't have any fun indoor things to do with kids, and I don't really feel like driving forever just to make my way through some strange big city to go somewhere that could potentially suck, and cost too much money. These are the days when I wish I was in beautiful Oregon. On a day like this we could go to OMSI (here): the funnest place ever (we went to the Fort Worth museum thinking it would be a bit like OMSI, nothing compares), the Portland Children's Museum (here): can you say awesome childhood memories??, the beach which is a little far, 2 hours, but so worth the trip, and such a good way to kill a day (here, here, or here) or even visit any number of different family members (can you say COUSINS!!! [here]) and plenty of other places, but those are the ones that were in my dreams today! Ahh, I need ideas! What to do on a gloomy day to keep these kiddos entertained? We just can't hack another trip to Target(or my wallet just can't hack another trip)! And I don't feel like driving a million miles just to go to another indoor playground thingy (why doesn't this city have one of it's own I ask you?? WHY??). So, anyone want to play?
