What's going on here...?

Driving already?!  Or really sitting in the parking lot at a forest preserve that I just realized is only about five minutes from home.  And that is really saying something because there is almost nothing within five minutes of our house.  We had a couple of unusually cool days (highs in the low 70s!) lately, and today the whole family took a short trip to the forest preserve.

View from the parking lot
This preserve has several trails, including two that are about one mile loops, just right for us these days.  These trails are shared with horses, and a horse trailer happened to arrive right after we did.  Watching the horses (from a distance) was one of the highlights of the trip for E.  Also pushing the buttons in the car, ahem.

In other news, one of E's favorite things is playing peek-a-boo!  He likes to hide or cover his eyes and then call out the name of the person he wants to "look" for him.  He just discovered that he can get the same effect by scrunching his eyes closed to hide.  Then I scrunch mine back at him and ask him questions about where he's hiding.  When he's ready to be found, he tells me, "Open!"
