Boredom is rare.

Sometimes the best days are nothing like you intended. With sketchy weather forecasted we drove to Grand Island with fingers crossed it would stay sunny and reach the predicted high of 79 so we could hit up Island Oasis.

Stopped at Coney Island because Mitch had to. 

When we got done eating it was still cloudy and 69*. We decided to bum around and wait to see if it would clear up a little. 

By this time we called the water park and they said they planned to close early. The kids thought it was kind of warming up. 71. Warm enough for a little wading in the kiddie park. 

It was seriously such a relaxing, fun afternoon. I don't think anyone really cared that we didn't end up going down water slides all afternoon. 

We drove by Mitch's childhood house and ran into his best friend's mom who still lives in the neighborhood. She told the kids she keeps up with them on Facebook and she can't imagine they're ever bored. Ha! 

Boredom is rare. We can make fun wherever we go. Big love for weekends with my favorites.
