Fun at Burke Lake Park

Still catching up on vacation photos, but I promise I’ll be done after this week. While we were visiting my parents, we tried to take Evan on a train ride but somehow kept miscalculating when and where they started (you’d think trains wouldn’t be that hard to predict). Eventually we settled on Burke Lake Park, even though it was literally 104 degrees out. My dad dragged out his canoe and fishing poles, we bought a few bucks worth of worms, and we splurged on train tickets, carousel rides and ice cream. It was like an entire summer wrapped up in a few morning hours.

Caroline is doubtful of this “canoe” thing

Despite the giant “DO NOT FEED THE WATER FOWL” signs, I suspect these guys get fed a lot

Evan caught his first fish!

But he wasn’t a big fan of the fish flopping around.

Caroline loved the fish.

Adorable mini-train

Incredibly weird and random fact: The guy driving the train was my boss 12 years ago when I worked at a campground/county park for the summer between freshman and sophomore year of college. I quit in a huff on my second-to-last day because it was 104 degrees and he was mad I wore my t-shirt sleeves rolled up. I did NOT say hello (and he didn’t recognize me).

Longest carousel ride ever – the kids loved it.

And then we all stuffed things in our faces. The end.

    The flopping fish pic is AWESOME.

  2. I’m so glad my kid isn’t the only one who does finger guns. I was worried what daycare was teaching him there for awhile.
