Fun Times on Turner Mountain

Monday morning we left Colo, Iowa for a quick road trip to [the original] Turner Mountain down in Elliott, Iowa. It is one of the most peaceful places on Earth.
As soon as we got out of the car, the kids were off and running. Grandma and Grandpa had 6 kittens to torment, er, play with!

And even though Tyler continues to take steps, this photo below, took a little balance and quick timing on the camera part!

The temperature was in the high 90's but the kids still played outside... hence, the messy sweaty hair do by Addison.
The kitties were a huge hit. Even Tyler wanted to play with them, only he couldn't quite catch them.

On day 2, hotter than the day before, McKenzie and Trevor decided to give poor Phoebe a bath. And I think she loved every minute of it!
That evening, Grandma and Grandpa took us to Viking Lake to cool off!

It was a nice quiet relaxing evening with a light breeze... The kids played for about an hour and then we walked over to the nice little restaurant next to the beach for some great food!
Wednesday's lunch was BLT's so Trevor and Grandma picked some fresh garden tomatoes! YUM!
A quick photo with grandma and grandpa before heading out!
And hugs all around!

Wish I was there to play with the kitties too! Glad to see that none of them were harmed! Tyler is such a ham and growing like a weed!

Addison kinda looks like Judy in that picture of them sitting on the couch, doesn't she?
