No tripping and falling into water. (Bo fell into a stream at The Huntington back in January and then my dad dove in after her and scraped his leg which poured blood and then I had to MacGyver a bandage out of a diaper and a shoelace. I think maybe The Huntington was not designed for our family maybe.)
There were no fights.
No lost shoes in a forest.
No lost sweaters in a forest.
No lost children in a forest.
No blood. No accidents. Or injuries. Everyone stayed relatively together and the kids took turns hitching a ride on my back and Archer bonded with Canadian Geese and the girls followed a peacock into some kind of storybook fantasy world and everything was 96.8% awesome.
Anyway, this was a big win for us. High five, universe.
