Genevieve wanted to ‘put Gavin to bed’ herself – so she got a book and was reading to him while they rocked. So cute! This was loaded from my cell phone, so excuse the teeny size and bad quality!

Trip to the lake

The munchkins and I trekked out to Lake Needwood on Saturday. It’s a teeny lake about 15 minutes away where David used to go fishing, and it has a nice walking/biking trail that connects to Rock Creek Park. I had hoped to stick to the trail with the kids and stay away from the lake itself – it’s very deep, and I don’t trust Genevieve not to jump in when I’m not looking. Gavin I don’t have to worry about, he’d no sooner jump in water (lake, swimming pool, bathtub) than a cat would. 🙂 Anyway, once we got there and they saw water, I knew the trail was a no-go. They had a blast exploring the path along the lake and watching the geese that were hanging around. It ended up being quite a short trip because a. even in the shade, it was HOT (94ish degrees), and b. Mommy saw a snake (!!). I brought the camera along in case I happened to see a great location and/or in case the kids lost their minds and decided to cooperate for pictures. 😉

1. Playing in the ‘forest’ (according to Genevieve). “Mom, where’s the dragons?”

2. Gavin waving to the ‘ducks’, trusty car in hand:

3. Genevieve was fascinated by the geese:

Last one: they were playing hopscotch on the path. 🙂
