Downtrodden might be more accurate

We took the day yesterday, stepped away from the computers, dragged the semi-sick kids out of the house and went for some fun. We went to the sportplex in the city and bought wristbands for the big play area and tokens for the arcade games. Two of my three have been sick this week, but they're definitely on the mend. They just have a lingering cough and they're bored and tired of being cooped up (us too) so it seemed the perfect solution.

Well, my girls had fun, but maybe the Boy isn't on the mend as much as we thought. He whined most of the day. Everything was "too hard". The climbing appartus was too tall (not really, he's played on it just fine before). There were too many kids. The games were too hard. He was just having a bad day. I remembered that the HSMSHS prompt was beaten, so I took this photo of him by one of the games, feeling as beaten as a 4 year old gets.

The good news is that I took him in the car with me for a drive and let him have a big nap. When he woke up, he was sunny and happy again. Phew! At least little boys don't stay beaten for long!

Today's prompt is "silhouette", so it's into the archives I dive or I'll be posting this late again.

And a bonus, because silhouettes are fun!
