Earth Day

We love Winona's Earth Day! This year was no different. We biked to the lake- Peter rode and I convinced Emelia to sit in the bike trailer with Lainey. This year, there were a few things at the Levy Park and the rest were around town via bus.

We waited for the bus and a few of Peter's friends from school joined us on the bus trip up to Holzinger. We got to play bingo on the bus- Peter and Starker took it VERY seriously!
 Emelia... not so much. 
 When we got there, we listened to a naturalist talk about snakes that we see around the area. When we were biking home, I asked Peter what he remembered about the snakes and he could tell me the species names (Fox, Garter and Rattle) and that one of them was poisonous- but he couldn't remember for sure which it was. He is a good listener!!

 Easter was a laid back day. Garrick's mom and dad convened at our house- Linka from visiting GQ in Reedsburg and Greg then came to see us (and her) for the day before they ventured home.

 Church, Easter Egg hunt in the back yard- during which Peter dominated and Lainey wandered happy with her Lamb basket.

 Greg was completely in his element, giving tiny hints to the kids about the whereabouts of eggs, and then lifting them up to get the unreachable egg.

Pig Pile O' Kids

We spent the day with the Ida kids and had a wild time playing at Buckhorn, building a dirt bike track, having campfires and then going to Devil's Lake for the day. And trains. Lots of trains.
