If I had to use the ferry to commute to work every day or every week, I can see how it would quickly lose its novelty. But for now, riding the ferries every 2 months or so, they're not so bad. And a sunny day sure helps to make the wait even better!
This is a first for us..... and here's how the conversation went:
me: "we have to pay for Scott now because he's 5, but Elise and Todd are still free."
Todd: "I'm not free!"
me: "Yes you are, you and Elise are both free."
Todd (a little more loudly): "I'm NOT FREE, I'm FOUR!"
Steve loves to get right in there and play on the playground!
