A sunset walk

After a long, cold winter, we have been loving the warmth!  Of course, the upcoming week is supposed to drop down below freezing again :\  Spring will eventually be here for good, though, right?

Even with the warmth, most of the actual playgrounds have been a bit too muddy and wet for playing so we've been trying out different walking trails :)  The other night, we went to a favorite park after dinner and had a sunset walk :)  This park is fairly large with a play structure, a catch-and-release-pond, multiple sports fields, and walking trails.  We chose a path that went along the lake for a bit.
The path is made of small gravel and the kids thought the ruts from the park maintenance vehicles were awesome LOL  They walked in them, hopped back and forth over them and in general were just silly :p
About halfway around the lake, B had to stop and get the gravel out of his shoe ;)
He wanted to do it himself so Iz and I played peekaboo while we waited.
We walked past the lake down towards the end of the park.  There's a small private airport down there next to the park and the kids were hoping the plane we saw take off while we were over by the lake would be ready to land when we were right next to the airfield.  Alas, it was not and we turned back towards the lake without seeing any small planes land. However, we were right on time back at the lake for a gorgeous sunset!
And B needed to pose with his Farky :p
I'm pretty sure he would have stood there all night getting his picture taken :p
