Late August, the rainy & cool weather returned. The first weekend it happened, I tried to escape by throwing the kids in the car and driving east on I-90. In less than two hours, we made it to Lake Easton State Park. As you can see, we didn’t drive far enough to make it out of the gloom, but we did make it out of the rain.
The boys threw rocks in the lake, explored the forest, and made instant friends with another family who was there to camp. Alex had walked up to the six-year-old boy and asked, “Do you want to play chase?” That was all it took. Everybody ran around the park’s little playground for almost an hour.
The kids slept well that night.
