We took the girls on a short (hah!) road trip to nearby (hah!) lakeside/college town today. Visited a few shops that Mike had found when I was running their undergrad program review, a wargaming miniatures store which is too cool for words with all its historical models and rulesets and a used bookstore which had a lot of fun stuff to browse through for everyone, picked up lunch at Burger World and then home again. A fun time was had by all and I enjoyed this last bit of vacation, thoroughly.
Now if the heatwave breaks, I’ll be even happier, though I’m pleased to say that at least the new siding has clearly had the effect of insulating us better against the punishing afternoon heat.
