It was a hot day in Cincinnati today. The thermometer read close to 100 degrees. It was a perfect day to be inside in the air conditioning. That's what normal people would do. My kids and I are not normal. We spent most of the day outside.
After spending a considerable amount of time in the neighborhood pool, we decided to go to the river. The kids had a great time wading in the water and finding fossils. My son had such a good time, that he announced he wasn't going to leave.
"I'm going to walk all the way to the Mississippi River."
"Uh-huh," I said. "Good luck with that!"
