Rainy day blues!

I'd like to say that we spent all day at Grandma and Grandpa's house swimming and barbecuing, but I'd be lying. Grandpa spent all week getting the pool filled, chemicalized and ready to swim; only to have it rain on our only day off. We closed all three restaurants for Monday and planned to have a family gathering. Since that fell through, Chris and I took all of the kids to see "Night at the Museum."

We all had a really good time, spent way too much money, but had a good time just the same. Sissy is still a little heartbroken that we didn't swim, she's been asking nearly every day since last summer, "Can we go swimming today?" Depending on the day the answer would be, no: it's snowing, sleeting, lightning, pouring, insert appropriate weather event. She didn't care, all that she wanted was to swim. We're all hoping that sometime this week the weather will moderate and we'll be able to throw the little water baby in, maybe she'll stop begging and whining for awhile.
