I'm pretty sure that is the way my kids see me at times.
Today we went to Rabbit Hash with a hopeful me that I could get some really good family photos. I have been planning on this since the last time Mike was home. Ideally I really wanted to get pictures when the leaves were changing, but now they are all gone and it was colder than heck today. So I have a lot of pictures of unhappy freezing children. It was worth the effort, and maybe one or two good photos that may make the Christmas card.
The kids always think a trip to Rabbit Hash is worth getting to pick out a bottled soda though.
