We had the kids on Easter Monday, which was nice because they had been with Dad and we hadn't seen them since the previous Wednesday. Deciding to get outdoors for awhile, we went to the trail. Unfortunately it was rather cool and blustery, but at least we were a bit sheltered in there.
She turns 10 today and has kind of reached that tweener stage. I wonder hw long it will be before she is able to look grandma in the eye.
Meanwhile she is a ham and tends to search out photo ops for me.
They wandered off the trail into the woodland.
And the ham found another opportunity to ham it up.
I got the toothless JJ to sit in the fork of a tree.
Danica spotted two Mallards swimming in the pond that usually isn't a pond. She took a number of photos, and this one turned out best. I was surprised to see two boys hanging out together. I guess they will miss out on some fun this spring.
We heard a knocking, and JJ and Sue searched for the woodpecker. JJ spotted it, so he got to shoot it.
The danged bird was facing away, but we can see a bit of the red head and some of his handiwork.
It was a relatively short and brisk outing, but it was good to get out nevertheless.
