To get out of the scorching heat, we drove up to Little Cabin in the Woods. Unfortunately lots of other folks had exactly the same idea.
And unfortunately it was 105 in the shade when said road closure happened.
And unfortunately our 3 hour drive turned in 6+ hours!
But fortunately... it wasn't actually that bad! My kiddos rallied! We played music. We got out of the cars because it's cooler outside than in the car. We got to know our car neighbors. We ate snacks. We took in the gorgeous scenery around us that we usually pass by going 70mph. Some of us needed to wander into the desert to use the facilities. And yes I took photos because that's what I do and I could.
And we made do! Because what was the alternative?!
I want my like to be that way and I want my children to have this outlook too. Accept what I can't change and make do when the unexpected or undesirable happens.
