We had originally planned to take the kids into DC on Saturday to the Smithsonian and some monuments but because Owen had been doing the ole' heave ho all night, we decided to stick close to home and take it easy.
We took the kids to the park instead and it was beautiful! The weather was perfect and we all wore shorts. I know it's supposed to get cold again this week but we were all over it while we had the chance. River even got a little sun under her eyes.

Wine coolers contain sulfites, which I am allergic to and these things are 3.2% alcohol, which is roughly the same alcohol content in kool-aid.
It isn't like I haven't had one of these before. I must have because when I took a sip I immediately acknowledged to myself and my husband that they tasted like the
