A day with the daughter

Today was a great day! My daughter Jessica was babysitting her friends 3 year old daughter and we decided to go to the park. First we went to Gators Dockside and had boneless chicken wings and fries.

Next we went to Lake Mills Park. Its a little bit of heaven in our crowded concrete jungle.

At Lake Mills there is a boardwalk running through the woods. There is a little stream that runs through it too. Lexi had us on the lookout for lions, tigers and bears. We did not see any of those animals but we did see a squirrel and a butterfly. Oh, and a man that was up in a tree over the stream and the woman he was with told Lexi it was a monkey. Lexi kept asking us the rest of the way if we were going to see any more monkeys!

After we left we went down the street to pasture with cows. We stopped so Lexi could look at them up close. Unfortunately these cows probably will not be here much longer as there are neighborhoods going up right next to their pasture or what used to be their pasture and across the street as well. We need more subdivisions around here like another hole in the head.

Then to top off the perfect afternoon we stopped at Twistee Treat for ice cream. Jessica and I had banana splits and Lexi had chocolate.

I was so happy to spend the day with my daughter and her cute little friend!
