A Short Hike in the Neighborhood

On our second day in Seattle, Margie and I took the kids to a little playground in an adjacent neighborhood. The playground was situated next to a little lake.
The kids enjoyed looking at the ducks and fishing with sticks. We decided to walk around the lake on the path, about a mile and a quarter in length.
The kids were intrigued with this tree? What could live in an old hollow tree? Who made that hole in the trunk?

The three oldest kids -- Harrison, Lisette, and Emma --were constantly being told to slow up and wait for us. While the three younger kids -- Clare, Zach, and Annalise -- were being encouraged to keep up and walk faster. Everyone was asked not to step in the mud and the puddles. Basically all these requests were ignored. We were all very happy to reach the playground and get back into the warm car.
