me and max sitting in the car.
waiting for the girls to get out of school.
watching the glowing gas light
warn us that we only had 24 miles left until empty.
we took some pictures.
straight from the dashboard.
cute faces, silly faces, serious faces too.
and then the gate guy came and unlocked the gate.
and we walked up to the playground.
and max played with his little friend until the bell rang at 2:11 pm.
then, with the girls, we walked out to a hot car.
turned up the ac and headed for the gas station.
and since we were right there,
we drove through mcdonalds for three vanilla ice-cream cones.
