Last Post for a Few Weeks

We're going to Ocean City in two day's and will be there from Thursday through Monday. Then, Geoff is coming back up here and Michael and I will be going down to Virginia with Aunt Holly and the rest of the gang for two weeks. We're extremely excited! I haven't seen the ocean in over a decade and Michael is busy trying to figure out the difference between a Lake Beach and an Ocean Beach (at least I'm busy trying to describe the differences..)
After that, Michael and I will be taking the train back up here. It will be our first time on a real train, we've only been on the El, so we'll see how the monkey does. Maybe we'll get lucky and he will sleep the whole way:)
This past weekend we went to Green Lakes again on Saturday, walked the trails and went swimming. I'm including some pics of the lake, it's such a beautiful color when you get into the deep part!
The beautiful lake, you can see where it's brownish then turns to that gorgeous blue-green color....
Michael Climbing on a fallen dead tree. he made it up about three feet with no help from us. The boy is fearless!
This is one of our chipmunks that hangs out on our back porch (they hang out on our front porch too) it was getting dark and I can't use the flash on moving objects, sorry about the poor quality:(
We walked to Mill Run Park after Geoff got off work one day. There are walking trails and a creek (it's the creek that's right behind our house, but there's no real access behind our house). There's also a playground. This picture is right after Michael decided he could walk by himself in the creek and fell face first. You can almost see the smile on his face when he got up. If you look closely you can see his dimples:) Like I said, the boy is fearless!
It looks like he's holding hands with Geoff here, but he's actually trying to break free, there was a struggle going on...
These ducks and ducklings are very dark, they don't look like mallards. Anyone know what kind of duck they are?
Same set of dark ducks:)
These are just some late hatching ducklings, they're so small compared to the rest of the almost-full-size ducklings born earlier this spring:)
Jumping over a very large bolder. If you build it, he will jump over or on it!
Also, my woodchuck has a trap in his burrow, it's one that the wildlife control guys stuck down in his hole, so Geoff doesn't know how to get it out? Anyone have any ideas? I don't want them killing my Friend. He would be greatly missed:(
OK. I think that's it for now. We miss all of you and hope you're having a great summer!!!Come visit us to see our wildlife friends!!!
