... where we were, it was the worst possible thing for star gazing because it made the stars harder to see.

We then headed to bed. I finally tried on my pants and not gonna lie - wish I hadn't bought my diaper pants and got my laundry done instead! They looked bad on me and I flash my underwear in them.
