Cooling off at Cobblestone!

We had scheduled a day at Cobblestone with our FAITH homeschool group earlier in the year.  The boys and I got there around 10:15 this morning and by 11:00 they were “bored” and “ready to go home”…none of the other families had shown up yet.  This wasn’t an RSVP event – just show up if you want to hang out.

Uh, oh…

I was already planning my “speech”:

“You know, things don’t always turn out the way we want them to.  Life is full of disappointments.  You have a choice – you can choose to make the best of it and have fun anyway, or you can choose to make yourself miserable.” 

“Seriously!?!? I would’ve been thrilled to come to a place like this when I was a kid!  Do you guys know how spoiled you are?  There are children in the world that would LOVE to have a day at the pool!”

Blah, blah, blah “….

Just as I was walking back across the pool area to give the boys a piece of my mind,  Alison and Claire walked in!   Phew 🙂 !

The boys finally decided/chose to have a positive attitude and guess what? They actually had FUN!!!  They played ball, threw the torpedo, met new friends, went down the slides, conquered the hippo ( 🙂 ) and ended up having a blast!  Alison and I got the chance to visit and catch up.  We even stopped at Sweet Frog on the way home, ran into more friends, and ended up not getting home until 3:30!
