So, I am feeling better.
We ran around the science centre for a few hours, watched a presentation on Galileo and had a slurpie.
Then we went to Edworthy park for a couple of hours and the boys met some new friends and played under the big spruce trees while I read a book.
When we left, after 4pm, they were FILTHY, but happy and I was much more relaxed.
We ended the day with a trip to Dairy Queen where Parker ate an entire banana-split, getting strawberries all over the front of his shirt.
Normally, this would send me over the edge, but I just turned his shirt around backwards and pretended it never happened...:D
I tossed them in the shower and they rinsed away the dirt, ice cream, pine needles and other lovely things they had stuck in their hair.
We are home, clean and tired.
It was a good day!
