My brother and his wife decided that they were going to take the kids out to spend the day with them. Keep in mind, they have no kids of their own nor are they around small children frequently, as my brother told Faith. I believe the quote was "Auntie Denise and I aren't used to little kids, you're going to have to help us out with what to do." Yeah, that's the thing to tell a 5 year old.
Anyhow, Denise works as a director for high rollers at Casino Niagara so she had a whole plan mapped out--Journey Behind the Falls, Maid of the Mist, Clifton Hill. Then there were detours to the Hershey Store, the candy store, Build a Bear ...
The kids came home thrilled, Scott looked like he was going to pass out from exhaustion.
