Well, Friday I went to Comfest with Ryan. Patrick and kiddos stayed home, Lauren taking a 4 hour nap... it was strange to be there without the family, without Patrick.
Saturday, Patrick volunteered from noon - 4 (way to represent!), so we three headed down around 3:40. At approximately 3:42 the skies opened, and the rain came down. Lauren was most displeased, as the KidsART tent was transformed into a shelter for the weary... all the games / paints / t-shirt art / etc, was pushed aside to make way for people hiding from the storm. Patrick showed up, tried to lighten the mood... I mean who doesn't like running in a summer rain storm?
You guessed it... even in Patrick's big t-shirt for warmth she wasn't impressed at all.
Trevor seemed unplused.
As soon as the rain stopped, we walked around a little bit, but then just headed home. Lauren was most displeased, and I worried she might not want to return the next day. But on Sunday morning she declared that it seemed a good day for Comfest. Right on, honey!
Patrick stayed on for the evening, and it didn't rain another drop. Next year we're going to manage at least one night for the adults... get ready Grandma & Grandpa, Nana & Papa... I think there's a slumber party adventure in there for you somewhere!
