Today I succumbed. To the local version of Groupon or SocialLiving or some other "Daily Deals" special. I relented and got the kids and Olaf the "Mother of All Passes!" It entitles them to unlimited entry to the local Mini Amusement park, you know the kind that every decent sized town has. It also gives them entry into the local Water Park. The kicker was the food discount at the Water Park, 3%.
The kids have visions. Visions of living in their swimsuits this summer. Visions of going to work with Olaf and then when the Water Park opens at 11am he can run them over to swim. We mentioned that our friends have the pass. But they don't have to get the Season Parking Pass because the grandparents live right next door. Baby's eyes got dreamy.
"Do they just stay at their grandparents in the summer?"
