We feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the country. Chris and Alyssa (cousins) led us on a trip to Klondike Park (about a 30 minute drive). It was such an amazing day outside!
From what we understand this used to be a quarry and has now become a "park". There are walking trails and places to bbq and some playgrounds.
Chris and Alyssa have some really cutie kids - this is Jaron...
The kids had a great time skipping rocks and being together.
We brought Peanut (the dog) along too. We have learned (I guess this ride confirmed it) that she gets car sick :(. I will spare you the details...
She LOVED getting in the water and then rolling around in the sand.
Amanda and McKenna stopped for a snack.
Poor Jacob was really bothered by the pollen. I took him to the allergist this week and we found out he has the same awful seasonal allergies that Jason has.
After a snack break we drove to a trail and walked up (it was a short walk up). Gorgeous views were up top. You could see the Missouri river and the Katy Trail was down below. (Jason stayed in the van with Jacob so he could have a pollen break).
We saw this tail-less lizard on the way up.
We let Peanut sit on my lap with her head by the window to see if she could avoid getting sick on the way home...
It worked! (Which I was very grateful for, since I was the one holding her :)
We will go back again soon!
