Me: We can be all changed and ready in FIFTEEN MINUTES, you guys! SRSLY!
After about 13 minutes, we were nearly ready to jump in the van when Wee Ninja Girl skipped upstairs to do something very important in her room. I was on my way down when I saw her emerge, her eyes in that saucer-wide "something-ain't-right-but-I-don't-know-if-it's-bad-enough-for-tears" expression. It turns out that a nearly dead wasp somehow landed on her foot and stung her middle toe through her socks. It also turns out that it was bad enough for tears PLUS shrieks PLUS ice PLUS cuddles from Sillypants, who was more than happy to oblige.

I really love our park; it's not very big, but there are a couple nice trails in the woods and by a pond. We saw some deer, lots of chipmunks, and a squirrel or two. There weren't a lot of people on the loop, so I could let Sillypants walk/run/pick at the gravel all she wanted without being in anyone's way.
