...a, why did we even come here? *says Ben in a complaining voice* What is there to do in this wasteland?
Grandpa Max: Heh heh, don't worry. There will be tons to do. This place has world renowned hiking trails with spectacular views. There are also hot springs that people come from all around to visit.
Ben: *In a sarcastic voice* Hot springs, as in more heat! Great, even the water is as miserable as this.
Gwen: *Irritated at Ben* Doofus. Even hot water will be better than this! Besides, the water will probably be warm, like a bath, not boiling hot.
Ben: *Rests his head back on the table in his arms* Whatever, anything will be better than this.
Grandpa Max: **Thinking: Sigh, we'd better get going, or soon the kid's tempers will be as hot as it is outside** Let's get moving. Those trails won't hike themselves. Let me help get everyone ready....
After about 30 minutes everyone is ready. Ben and Gwen have on school backpacks that are filled to the brink with bottled water and energy bars. Gwen also brought along a camera was well. While Ben brought a pair of binoculars. Grandpa Max has on a bigger backpack with more water, emergency kit, cell phone, and other things a parent would brink when hiking with kids. The heat has subsided a bit.
Grandpa Max: Everyone ready!
Gwen: Yes! *as she snaps a photo of Grandpa and Ben* At least its less hot out.
