Amidst these Frugal Times, yesterday Gavin achieved the coup of procuring an item of his choice at the Dollar Store (trust me, he has plenty of toys already). With his new plastic “Water Blaster” in hand, it became my mission to find a place where he could press said Water Blaster into service. It was a sunny afternoon and I had time to kill with two kids, AND -as always- a blanket and backup snacks in the car. I remembered a handy spot by the water’s edge of the Charles River, and Voila! PICNIC.
And by the way, the toy was cool (and hasn’t even broken in the whole day since), but did not maintain any allure for my Little Warrior compared to the riches of our Grand Little Urban Slice of Nature.

Not only a priceless way to spend time on a weekend day with no
income gigs, possibly the most inspirational dollar I ever spent!
