Well, you might say, Sure there are! I can think of hundreds of better things than that, like canoeing the Amazon River, eating double choc fudge icecream (home made), playing with a roomful of labrador puppies, riding a hot air balloon, traveling to the moon, or—but I would say,

I can only think of one.
And that's my kids

and avoiding detection!
(except for the time M's bum got in the way)
Finding the perfect disguise!
Guessing the password!
(which in the end someone told the boys—
without them asking—
which made them quietly
Breaking unbreakable codes!
(Which weren't so hard to crack when you put your heads together at lunch
to share your findings)
Riding a see saw

Inserting pictures of ourselves onto classic 70's album covers,
Laughing so hard we nearly fell down,
Singing along to
my boy's pitch was
69% on the money.
Bring on the Fame!
Bring on the Bright Lights!
Bring on more awesome days
Like this one.
