Dianne and the kids came over to play. We took all six to our local park where there was much splashing and digging in the sand. After the park the kids played in the sandbox and some of them ate their hotdogs. A certain six year old girl took only a few bites and then complained bitterly later that evening when I wouldn't let her have a snack before supper.
It was a good thing we spent a while in the backyard because Dianne spotted mushrooms growing on our beloved Norway maple tree. This needs checking by a professional arborist as we do not want that tree falling down on our house!
