Day 3 we went to some parks and we walked a lot. I think the only reason I didn't gain weight on this trip was that we walked several miles a day (if someone feels the need to correct me and say it was less then they should ignore that feeling...it was several miles a day!)
First - we got ready to go. Jeremy was nice and helped Danton get ready for the day. It was a struggle at first, and the girls were awfully jealous...but we finally go him dressed and smiling.
Cassie had finally had it with the children not listening to her and she busted more then one cap on them fools.
...get it?? It's a cap gun. ...Oh geez, I am my dad.
Taking a picture of everyone else trying to get ready. Say what you will about being single, but it's pretty cool to get out of the car and be ready to go.
The first park was a playground/petting zoo. There was a height limit and a creep factor on the playground...so I was not allowed to run around like one of the kids. It would have been different I suppose if I wanted to play with the kids...but I just wanted to go down the slides and run across the bridge on my own. Instead - I took some pictures.
The best was probably when Danton found himself tangled up in the...I don't know what it would be called, the rope that you can use as a ladder up to the top part of the playground... I can't say we didn't see it coming, but I can say most of us didn't see it happen. Rather we heard Tami say, "Uh, Danton anyone?" or something along those lines (it's been weeks, pardon me if I forgot). Then it took a moment to register in all of our minds and in that time Tami had already started the mother sprint to grab him. Luckily his leg did get caught, that playground floor was bouncy, but I don't think it was bouncy enough.
Then we moved on to the petting zoo part (at least I think it was a petting zoo...no one stopped us). We noticed this sign after Lydia ran up to a chicken and pet it. We were all surprised that she just ran up and did that, all of us except for Sarah of course, apparently this happens a lot. Here is a friendly goat.
Makes you think of a dog in a way.
And here I am trying to conjure up the nerve to touch the goat. If Lydia can pet chickens, certainly I can get a little closer.
There we go. I used the hand sanitizer after that one.
Then it was on to the second park...which had a concession stand (thank goodness) sadly it was over priced, but I was thirsty enough I went ahead and paid. Here are random pictures from that (I am losing my wordiness...beware)
This gem I didn't notice until the next morning. Cassie's nephew drew it...it's people getting sucked up into a tornado. Aside from slightly disturbed I found it was something I couldn't pass up taking a picture of. I didn't know that people always go headfirst into tornado's...but now I do.
