day out..

Since I've now had 3 horrid nights with the baby, I decided we'd better get out of the house today or I'd be known as "Mommy Cranky Pants"! Before heading out, while I was trying to get some things done, Arianna and Kaitlyn had their own idea's...
And made hats out of styrofoam bowls, yarn and fake flowers. It's amazing what they come up with when left to their own devices for a little while.
We headed out via a fast stop at Walmart and then on to the nature park. The girls had fun walking around and since Kaitlyn was playing "camera girl" we have a few interesting if somewhat blurry pictures.



(Arianna in a weird twist of roles today was "purple girl" instead of Kaitlyn. Not sure what happened there!) We discovered tall tree's...
and weird tree's
and baby brother was suitably impressed...
or not...

Afterwards it was on to another park we hadn't been to and now the girls are begging to go back with shorts and swimsuits to play in the water..
It's actually pretty shallow and lots of natural (or manmade) rock dams to make little area's that don't have much if any current.
There is also some grills, picnic tables, etc. so they are wanting to do a "end of summer" BBQ there this year.
Afterwards it was home and Dominic got to try out his new toy...
Which is where he is currently sleeping away...
