There was a lot working against me. It rained on and off all day. The kids had RIBS for lunch, which is always a good idea when you want them to be clean and, you know, not covered head-to-toe in rib sauce. The kids had no desire to pose; Emily – my most cooperative ham – was coming off of a two-night-in-a-row sleepover and that never ends well. Even she wasn’t into it.
So, I gave up. We went to Indigo and picked up some books. We had birthday cake. We didn’t, however, visit the old barn.
