Maus was not entirely thrilled with this, but he got to eat lots of my gyro meat and didn't bite anyone, so we both got something we wanted.
|He puts up with so much.|
After lunch, I pointed out to Crystal that the Mississippi River was only a few blocks away, and it'd be a shame not to wander over and take a look. A tragedy, really.
Little did Crystal know that the blocks on Summit Avenue are about twice as long as any sane blocks. As a consolation prize, though, the houses are some of the loveliest bits of architecture in the cities. And, of course, the Mississippi is always worth walking to.
|No one fell down this cliff, luckily.|
Once we got to the Summit Ave overlook, I pointed to one of the random trails down to the river and said most innocently, "Gee, I've never been down there before."
I am sneaky, sneaky. And the rest, as they say, is history.
|I buried Maus's feet in the sand. He was only mildly horrified.|
|Then I buried Piper's feet in the sand. She gets me.|
