Our Labor day was mellow but we had so much fun trekking. We took our kiddos at Tomlinson Run State Park and they were excited because it's been a while since we visited there. Unexpected trips like this always makes our kids say "You're the best parents ever!"
There is nothing much to do out there but simple things like skipping rocks or watching wild animals is a real treat for them. You can however rent a boat and paddle on the lake but they are closed on the weekends and holidays so we don't really have an option. At this time of the year, most of the fish that the park put in are all gone so catching fish is not an option either besides we don't have a license to fish.
They brought their slippers because they wanted to dip their feet in the lake and catch some crayfish. They always wants to do this every time we go there. They catch them and then release them again before we leave.
I am so glad that there's not enough geese poo in there. There are times where you can't even walk around because the geese just trash it with their waste but not this year.
We love to sit in the bench and watch the birds fly by. It's a perfect family bonding. We get to talk about everything the kids school, their friends, and just about anything that we can think of.
My camera's battery got drained but we took some photos with my cellphone. The kids were so happy to see a group of turkey crossed the park. I am still trying to convince my minion for us to hike or do a long trek in the park. My son is on board but my daughter got traumatized when we walked there one time and she was eaten by mosquito. Even with bug spray, she's still get mosquito bites and it's not a good thing because she is allergic to mosquito bite.
