Like most kids in our area, the kids have had the last few days out of school.
The first time they went to play in the ice, it was still sleeting. I saw that they were taking umbrellas out. My last words to Joshua..."Please don't ruin your umbrella". You can see what became of the umbrella. He said it was already broken but I am pretty sure that using it as a scraper on the patio didn't cause any of the damage you see.
Next time I look out, I see that they are making and eating a coke slushy. Unfortunately they used the ice on the storage bench. You know, the one right underneath where the birds nest. You know the bench with the white spots all over the lid. UUGGHH! I hope that the birds don't have some disease (yeah right!). I told them that it was not safe. Next thing I know they are scraping more ice off the patio. You know the one the elderly dog has accidents on. I guess what doesn't kill you makes you stronger right???
