Visit with Aunt Pat

My mom's sister Pat came for a visit at the beginning of the week. We were all so excited to see her! We took her to Dauset Trails and it turned out to be a beautiful day and perfect weather. The leaves were all still so pretty and we all had a great time. We started out with a picnic lunch by the lake.
Emma enjoyed it, even though she only had a bottle!
Ben on the long bridge over the lake.
Checking out the turtles and fish.
Anna and Ellie. Poor Ellie had a terrible ear infection, but hardly complained. She's a trooper.

An owl, Ben's favorite.
Paul got very close to this huge buffalo for a picture.

Aunt Pat and Ben checking out the chickens.

What is it about little boys and rocks? They both wanted to load their pockets up and take them home.
He also wanted to throw them at his brother!
A nice pic, except for uncooperative Ben who was missing his nap at this point.

Father and Daughters
After Dauset Trails we headed to Indian Springs State Park.
The kids couldn't wait to get walk in this cold, cold water.

Of course you know what happened. It took Sam less than a minute to slip in and it took Ben even less time than that before he was soaked.
But they had such a great time.
And it was such a beautiful day.

Thankfully we found a pair of pants for Sam in the car, but none for Ben, so he rode home wrapped in a towel. We stopped at Dairy Queen, so he ate his ice cream in a towel, but he didn't care one bit!
It was a great day.
