Today I insisted that we go to the park. Just how many hours can you stay inside playing Legos anyway? (At least 12 if yesterday is anything to go by.) No, the weather wasn't as nice as it was when we had a week of freakishly warm temperatures before Easter. As a matter of fact, it was quite overcast and a bit chilly; going to the park is not the first activity that comes to mind on days like today. That just means we had more of the space to ourselves. We met a few hardy families on the trail and we smiled knowingly as we passed each other. In a few weeks the park will be crowded with tweens, Strollercizers, and park district day campers. Today was just for those of us with late onset cabin fever.

|Wide open spaces. They can't be beat.|
