Hi all! This afternoon, our Grandparents took us to a beautiful park situated next to a lake.
Unfortunately, just as we pulled into the parking lot, it started to rain.
"This is annoying." I commented.
"It does not appear to be a heavy shower; hopefully the rain will let up in a little while." Elizabeth replied. True to her word, the rain did stop, so we ventured outside.
"What do you want to do?" I asked Elizabeth.
"Perhaps a game?"
"That's a good idea ... since there are so many trees, how about hide-and-seek-tag? I call hiding first!"
"Very well," Elizabeth laughed, "I'll start counting. One, two three, ..."
I quickly hid. After some searching, my sister found me. Then, it was my turn to seek.
" ... ready or not, here I come!" (Cue Mission Impossible music ...)
Peering around tree after tree, ...
... I finally spotted a swish of blue - the color of Elizabeth's skirt!
In case you didn't know, in hide-and-seek-tag you have to not only find the Hider, but also tag them.
I was gaining on Elizabeth, but then she suddenly rounded a corner.
"Where can she be going?" I muttered.
Turns out, the dock.
"Wow." I said, forgetting about our game.
"It is lovely." Elizabeth agreed.
My sister and I had a great time at the lake-side park.
How do you like to spend time with your siblings (or, if you don't have any, friends)?
