This spring we joined the Bethlehem Rod and Gun Club. They have a 25 to 100 yard rifle range, trap shooting, hiking trails, a 10 acre pond, free (to members) canoes and Bass Boats, and a small camping area.
One interesting thing is that the rifle range is crawling with small frogs. I think these are
Pickerel Frogs. When we are the only people there (a frequent occurance
when it isn't hunting season), we go out and try to catch them.
This is Allie's hand.
They can kind of/sort of climb smooth surfaces too.
Allie didn't like them being in an empty bucket, so she added things to make it "more natural".
And another closeup of the frogs.
When Kree came to visit, we took the train (MTA North) down to
New York City to visit. We wound up in Central Park and
wandered around a bit.
This is Tina standing next to Balto. Interestingly enough, this is one of the more popular statues in Central Park. Kree and Dieter had no idea who Balto was, and wondered why we had to make the pilgramage to his statue... Much to their surprise they saw lots of other families coming to pay their respects to the honored dog. If you look closely, you can see that Balto's ears and back are shinier than the rest of the statue. This is from all the kids coming by to rub his ears and sit on his back.
Here's Tina riding Balto.
Allie standing next to the sign in front of the statue, and Tina (still) riding Balto. (OK, I know the framing of the picture could have been better, but when making a webpage, you use the pictures you have, not the pictures you wish you had.
I managed to talk Tina down off the dog to take this picture.
This is Allie checking out an Alpaca at the Central Park Children's Zoo.
Laurie, Kree (heads turned away, oh well), Allie and Tina watching the Sea Lions.
Allie and the Polar Bear.
Eddie and the Polar Bear.
Eddie likes snakes!
The kids at the main concourse at Grand Central Station.
Yep, that's me. Geez, my hair is getting grey....
And here's a last shot of Tina.
