There is a little girl who lives at our house who has been a little afraid of four wheelers. It took a little coaxing, but we she took a big step of faith and enjoyed a ride with our neighbor J. And for the record she talked J's ear off the entire ride. - Sam
In all the visits to Grandma and Grandpa's house we had never had the chance to explore the zoo. What a treat! We took a ride on the train, fed a few goats, chatted with an enormous elephant, and even watched the hippopotami eat a some apples.
We headed out to one of MY favorites when eating on our visits with Grandma and Grandpa, Kopp's . Most often we just stop for some frozen custard, but today we decided to get a little bite to eat. Fun Fact: Arnold's Diner from the hit TV series "Happy Days" was fashioned after Kopp's Frozen Custard Stand. Sweet Pea enjoying a nice cold treat.
The gang all eating until their heart is content.

Do you see the size of that burger!!! Half of it was bigger than her head. Mmmm, so good. - TR2
One day I overheard a mother talking to her children in the parking lot about spotting a silly car. I quickly looked over to find out what a silly car looked like. I was surprised to see that it was just a plain old convertible. ;o) Then I started thinking, we don't see many convertibles in the upper Midwest, and they are a little silly. No top, Silly. From then on I have referred to convertibles as silly cars too. Sweet Pea also calls them silly cars whenever she spots them. In fact she LOVES silly cars. When talking about silly cars on the way to Grandma and Grandpa's house we discussed how Grandma R has a silly car. Sweet Pea was very excited to see it. She was a bit disappointed when she found out that it was still in storage over the winter. Her eyes lit up when she found out that Grandma was going to pick it up while we were visiting, AND she would be able to go for a ride.
Ready to go.
She did not care for all the wind, but LOVED her rides.
Everyone took turns driving her around. :o)
I didn't hurt that there were both a park and ice cream stop in the middle of her rides. - TR2
