August Break - Day 28

I've been SO tired lately and I spent the whole day trying to sneak little naps whenever I thought the kids weren't looking. They always caught me though! I would stretch out quietly on the couch while they were engrossed in some obnoxious cartoon and hoped and prayed they wouldn't notice. Before long I had 3 wiggly kids sitting on me and bouncing around like crazy sugar frenzied maniacs. Playing dead didn't work either. :( Fortunately they are in bed now and the urge to nap has passed.

Catie caught a fat frog in the backyard today and then cried later when I told her she had to let it go. I can totally sympathize with her. She's clearly a frog addict like myself. ;)

We went for our usual evening car ride. I wanted to explore more of the grid roads around here but this is what happened - a washed out road turned pond with ducks swimming in it.

One kid urged me to turn around immediately and the other told me I should try and drive through it. If I had a truck I might just attempt it, but I'm guessing my tiny Civic wouldn't get too far. So we turned around. :)

The sunset had a bit of an 'end of the world' feel to it. It went from this:

To this:

And then this:

Lovely isn't it?
