Today there's a 30% chance of rain. My mom wants to go to a state park and cook out and let the kids swim. Idk if I want to go. I'm still on crutches and hard for me to get around still. Id hate to drive all that way and have it rain. Plus I don't feel like getting ready. I know my mom will be mad but I'm an adult and can make my own decisions. Wont be much fun for me just sitting and doing nothing there

You may be bored but at least the kids would have fun. No?



We're stuck home today. LO was puking and had a fever yesterday. This morning he's still acting weird. No fever... but he won't eat. Just wants bottles. We're still going to attempt the fireworks in this humid, hot, buggy weather.

Dh won't be going (he works nights so is sleeping). Idk if I can handle the kids alone. Plus it keeps getting cloudy. I'd hate to get there and have it rain

None of your family would help you with them? That's pretty lame.



It's supposed to rain all evening here. The fireworks are going to SUCK in the rain... but I hope they don't get cancelled because regardless, the kids want to go SO bad.

They have kids of their own. I'd rather just spend the day here. Let the kids play outside and have a cookout here

I'll trade with you. I am stuck at work. Would much rather spend time at the park with LO

I'd rather take the kids to the local park to swim not the state park. But my mom wants to cook out as well

is there any way you can check the weather...like the current weather in the location that you're driving to? I think weather.com shows the current weather. And as for the kids you should talk to your mom and let her know that if she wants to go she needs to be willing to help you kids because you can't physically handle them while on crutches. And if they're going to be swimming she needs to be especially attentive to what they're doing.

There's a 30% chance of rain. It keeps getting cloudy and then sunny but its mostly cloudy. She wants my dh to go and help but he's tired after working all night

So neither of you are going to spend the 4th with your kids? Maybe you can go and just sit and watch the fun? I don't know how bad your feeling but I would try and go if I could. Will your mom take the kids without you and DH? Is anyone else planning on going with her?

I would just tell her no then. If she's willing to pay for your gas in case its a waSte of time and help with the kids 100% then I would go for the kids sake, but if not then its not worth the risk and hassle on your part. You're on crutches for good sake, don't she get that lol! : ) I hope you and the kids have a happy 4th either way. We are going to a bbq at my sisters, hopefully its sunny here!

I never said anything about not spending the 4 th with my kids. I'm saying I don't want to go to the state park. I'd rather stay here and go to a local park and let them swim and do a cookout here

Oh, you were just making it seem in your OP that you wanted to stay home altogether (like when you said you didn't even feel like getting ready). Hopefully your mom will be fine with staying closer.

Yea I'd stay here and go to a local pool. I don't want to pack the kids up myself and go to a state park
