Grandpa's visit, part 2

I'm not sure why I love this picture. I think just because it shows how little the kids still are, and how they still need their daddy to do things for them. It seems like they are just growing up way too fast, and before I know it, they'll be all grown.

Can you spot the hidden wildlife in this picture?

How about now?
What is so ironic about the fact that we just happened to see a rattlesnake, was how terrified Isaac was about snakes before any mention of one. On the way up the path, he heard the wind blowing a metal chain into a pole. He stopped, screamed hysterically and ran back to me, asking me if that was a snake he heard. And then when we were ready to leave the Star Tower, we were warned about a rattlesnake at the side of the path. I am certain we would have missed it if we hadn't known it was there. It was kind of cool to see a snake in the wild, but we kept our distance. After we left the tower, we went to north lake to walk around it. I was really mad that we forgot to bring a stroller, but both Finley and Isaac were really good about walking by themselves the mile around the lake. Sareny had her scooter, so she was able to go way faster than us. Then when we got back to our house, we celebrated Grandpa's birthday.
On Monday, which was Memorial Day, we went swimming.
Finley was getting pretty brave.
Sareny had a lot of fun swimming with her grandpa.
Isaac is getting to be a really good swimmer.
We had a really nice visit, and then we had to drop Grandpa Verne off at the eye clinic. The last time grandpa was able to come visit us was for Isaac's baby blessing--hopefully it won't be that long before he is able to visit us again!

I don't think I could have walked by that rattlesnake! Seriously. Poor Isaac. He was probably having flashbacks from the father and son's outing. I'm glad you got to have a visit with Keith's Dad, and it looks like you had fun.
