The weather here in K-ville has been LAME. A few of the parks here in town have wading pools open in the afternoons for the young kids to play in. Franny really enjoys it as do I, because people like Jayne are there to hang out and chat with while the kids are in the pool. Well, the pools have been open since Memorial Day, but we've only gone once because of the weather. It was an interesting afternoon! I'll spare you the swim diaper story, but I'll share another story about our up and coming social butterfly Franny. There are some public restrooms near the pool and I saw Franny run off past them and around the corner. I thought I better follow so Sophie and I quickly walked to catch up to her. As I am telling you this story, I am sitting here deeply regretting that I did not run to get to her, so I could have spared both Franny and I from what happened next. There were three boys and a girl who were, let's see... what's a nice way of saying white trash? The grass where the kids were standing was flooded and there were large puddles everywhere- Franny loves to splash around in puddles. They were standing around one larger puddle and giggling in a suspicious way. I don't know for sure, but I can only guess by some comments that were made that the boys were practicing their "aim." I could be wrong, it all happened so fast, but then the boys ran off and Franny followed, right after stomping her bare foot right in the afore-mentioned pee puddle! Oh Franny.... One more dip in the over-chlorinated pool and we headed home for the bath tub.
