Our day at Tannehill

We loaded up the car and headed to Tannehill State Park yesterday. It has always been one of my favorite places to go, ever since I was a teenager. I've had dreams of when I get old, being the park ranger there and living in one of those old log cabins. Doubt it will ever happen, especially since I know absolutely nothing about park rangering... Just a nice dream though. Anyway... Tad had his first little train ride... I was surprised he didn't cry with all of the noise it made, but I think he really enjoyed it!


Here we are at Bubbling Springs. Tad is very quickly trying to escape from me. I didn't have shoes on. The rocks were SO sharp and it was very hard to catch him!

Lexie catching him for me... There was lots of screaming involved, feet stomping, kicking and then he BIT me. He was so mad he actually bit me! I couldn't believe it... My sweet little boy bit my shoulder so hard it still has a purple mark on it today!
Lexie standing on the picnic table singing "Play that funky music white boy" I had to tell her to stop, then she did the whole "Well... you told me not to sing but that doesn't mean I can't humm it..." Why do children love to aggrivate their parents so much?
We had a nice little picnic where we dined on pb&j's and cheese puffs... yummy! and so healthy too...

Other than the temper tantrums, and yes there were quite a few, we had a pretty good time. I did however learn that an umbrella stroller just doesn't work at all for the terrain at Tannehill. I had to pick it and him up together several, several times just to get us around the place. I really need one of those packs you can put babies in to wear on your back. I do suppose I got my exercise in though, which is good because I haven't been to the gym all week...

We Love Tanneyhill. We live about 10 minutes from there and it is one of our favorite places to go. My hubby first took me there when we were dating and I dreamed about taking our children there. And now I can! And I too want Mark to be a park ranger everytime I see one of those little cabins. And then we could just live there!

One of my favorite places also! When I was a kid, I spent alot of time there. My favorite time to go is during Trade Days.

Sounds like a great place and time. Too hot here to go out and do anything.

My nephew Nick bit me once on the bottom lip. Almost went clean through. I now have a scar there. The funny thing about it is - now he has one in the same shape in the same spot under his lip. He got his from a toy scooter he use to ride.

Sounds like you guys had a great time and how did you ever get a picture of Susan? Looking good girl friend--We are all better now, and back to our tub and wine time--hey it is grreat to not be sick. See you guys soon.And don't worry about the temper tantrums. it is all apart of growing children--now three years down the road, you might want to give it some serious thought. Hey Tad will never do anything seriously wrong, neither will our Lexie.
Love Jan
