My holiday tactical error

Since the church mirrors the Federal Government when it comes to holidays, I had Monday off.  So I thought taking the kids out for lunch and a spin around a mall would be a simple afternoon.

And every single government employee and thier children were at this mall.

Even though it was crowded, a day with the kids is never a bad thing.
