Tooth Time and Fun

Today was our 6 month checkup at the dentist.  It was complicated by the fact that our big van is having problems and we had to take it to the shop this morning.  This meant that the older boys were relegated to the bus so that we could have the 2 remaining vehicles to take us the the appt.  Our mini van  does not fit the 8 people that needed to make the trip this morning.

Everyone did great at the appt...in and out in a little over an hour.  Keari likes getting her teeth brushed but does not like it when the dentist tries to look at them.  This is the second time she's refused to let him take a peak.  Maybe the third time will be the charm.

We then headed home to finish up school.

By mid afternoon we were headed to Tuckahoe State Park.  It's a beautiful place.  Has an awesome picnic area underneath giant pine trees.  A lovely lake to go canoeing /kayaking on and fishing in.   Nice trails for hiking and bike riding.  And it's also home to the tire monster.  ;)

Other items of attraction are...

Ty jumping of the pile.  A lovely view of the lake can be seen in the background.

Since the park is very close to my parents house, we made a stop there before heading home.  This is what greeted us...
What is it with the snakes lately??

WOW, that snake looks HUGE! We love going to the park too, if only it would dry up enough around here to go! :)
