Today, I had to do some traveling, because the one of regional park districts does not take reservations over the phone or online. The parks closest to our home were already booked. The other ones that are maybe a 30 minutes drive from our home are owned by another park district and they only do reservations in person at their administration office.
We had 3 different shelter locations in mind that was owned by this park district. We did not get our first choice, but we got our second choice. I think Superstar is happy. He wanted a playground near by for his younger cousins and something he could do.
His original choice had a sand volleyball court and tennis court. His second choice was adjacent to the river so they can fish. His second choice also has a splash pad so we told everyone to bring something to get wet in.
I spent the afternoon dusting off, untangling, and making sure our fishing gear still worked. We haven't used it in years!!! Many years!! It appears it is in working order. Tomorrow, I will be taking the kids fishing and seeing. They will do all the fishing themselves. Seeing they are still both under the age requirement for a fishing licence and I frankly don't feel like getting a license tomorrow. Maybe I will -- they don't cost much. I will see how I feel about that tomorrow morning.
Oh and want to know what "Toby Mommy" is all about? You should ask me! Drop me line, leave me a comment below.
