I had the pleasure of my grand children's company over the past weekend. Dane and I went to Gardeners Supply on Saturday morning and then came home and planted some annuals. His favorite part was watering the newly planted flowers--a true Aquarius.
He announced that he wanted to go to the Ethan Allen Park and climb the tower so we all did that. I wish that I had not left my camera in the car because the view from the top of the tower is spectacular--360° view of the Green Mountains, Lake Champlain, and the Adirondacks. We had been to the park two years ago but could not climb the tower because it was closed that day. I was surprised he remembered it.
After climbing the tower, we took a walk on the bike path along the lake.
What better stop after all that hiking/walking than a stop for ice cream? We did not make it to the chicken coop tour, though.
On Sunday, I had to go to the town hall to meet with two other women and work on copying the poetry I had collected for our project. Kristen stayed at the house, but Dane accompanied me. He was quite content to work on writing and drawing for an hour. His request for Sunday was to go to the Old Red Mill park and hike along the stream. We picked up Sissy and headed out.

We saw a mother and her two kids collecting tadpoles from the pond. They had boots. We did not, but one of us really, reallt wanted to collect tadpoles. Life does have its little disappointments.
