One more ride before we left. He liked the mud puddles.

On friday we picked Paxton up from school and then headed up North to the Lodge for the weekend. Mom and Dad had gone up on thursday and they spent the weekend up there as well. It was a nice relaxing time. It rained some of the time but Paxton and I went out on the fourwheelers a couple of times. We built mattress forts up in the loft and went "moosing" on Saturday evening (looking for moose). We saw one while we were out along with some turkeys and mallard ducks. We also saw some wild rabbits while we were up there. We headed back Sunday afternoon and stopped to see Aunt Alice on the way back. She still looks her same perky self.

We went to New York City this past weekend for our 10th Anniversary. Mom and Dad kept the kids for the weekend. They had a blast spending the weekend at Gramma and Grampa's!! Sounds like they did lots of swimming and kept busy. We had a great time and great weather. We left on Friday in the early afternoon and came back yesterday (monday) afternoon. We did a lot of walking all over the city. Saturday we went to Canal Street, Ground Zero, Little Italy and Battery Park. Our hotel was just off of Times Square so we spent plenty of time wandering around there as well. Sunday we walked up 5th Avenue to Central Park and spent some time walking around there and relaxing in the park. There were LOTS of people enjoying the nice weather. We also checked out a street fair before going to a Cirque du Soleil show and then walking 30 blocks back to the hotel. Monday we left NYC in the late morning and drove through Newport, RI on the way home. It was a nice relaxing time.
The Marines had some demonstrations and equipment set up at Battery Park. I got roped into seeing how many pull-ups I could do.
Lots of people on the big field in Central Park
