So although I just wanted to stay holed up on Black Friday, by lunchtime the kids were climbing the walls and driving me crazy. We needed some fresh air and exercise to exorcize the cabin fever demons which had taken possession of my angels.
So off to one of my favorite places to get our ya-yas out. The Hudson River. It was cloudy and cold and damn
it felt like it was gonna snow. We took the dog and romped through the woods and along the shoreline.
OK. So my kids are SICK TO DEATH of hikes. And walks with the dog. And the Hudson. We can't understand how they can be BORED on such lovely strolls and they can't understand why we don't take them to Chucky Cheese instead.
So I bribed them. First we're going on a walk. groan. Then we'll go to McDonald's gasp for lunch and we'll see Up at the 2$ theater.
YAY!!!... AWESOME!!!... COME ON LET'S GO!!!
Bribery. Works every time.
They needed the romp. It was cold and blustery, but we walked along the shore of the clean Hudson, and Dusty romped in the water and the kids breathed in fresh air.

Eventually we got cold and hungry. So we took Dusty back home and began our descent into Hades.
