At Eagle Island State park. It was raining so there wasn't much of a crowd. Russell got extra credit in one of classes for going and Autumn brought a couple of friends. I packed a picnic lunch and we ate on a wet picnic table. We were roughing it.
Will walked up to this group of men and tried to get in on their conversation. That didn't last long.
Autumn and friends came here last year on a field trip so they had already seen this stuff before.
They shot off this cannon while we were there. Will nearly had a panic attack while waiting for it to go off. They shot a blank into the lake. It was really loud, but the second it went off he said, 'hey! that wasn't so bad!'.
Then we went to meet Abe Lincoln. Will had all kinds of questions including, 'are you friends with George Washington?'.
I made Russell take a photo with Abe in case he needed proof that he was here for his extra credit.
Proof that we are officially out of our minds.
It's rare that I get a photo of just the two boys.
Autumn and friends.
This is such a beautiful park. I can't wait for some nice weather so we can go hang at the lake and eat our picnic lunch on dry tables.
