Our first time to spend more than a few minutes at the property was when Todd's college friend was in MI for business March 13. Andy was excited to see the property, check out the deer trails and help Todd find THE spot for a deer blind.
There was snow on the ground, but it was warm enough for shirt sleeves in the sun. We had a nice picnic dinner (pizza) and enjoyed seeing all sorts of animal tracks in the melting snow--Turkey, deer, rabbit and one I couldn't identify and didn't get a picture of.
Josie thought about working on her fort, but instead decided to make a raft and float down the drainage ditch. Having water at the property was new to us since it had been a dry summer last year. That game lasted until she fell off and the raft sunk--it is still at the bottom.
Tabitha didn't like walking in the snow. She cheered briefly when I share the chocolates Andy brought for me (What a guy!) but when she left half of the goody on her face she was sad again.
