a day out with eli

grandma and grandpa have been on vacation for a while, so that meant that deanna and i had to do some creative scheduling to take care of the boys. on thursday, eli and i hit the local park. he is a tenacious parkophile, and can spot a playground from a mile away. here, he was pointing at the bobcat.
our local park has a little creek. or maybe it's just a drainage ditch. whatever it is, this visit had a surprising look. i was perplexed at the neon green water in the creek/ditch. at first i was really bummed, thinking it may be anti-freeze from the local rednecks pick up truck. then i realized that there was no smell, so i'm going with the idea that it might be a mosquito control thing.
after running me ragged on the playground, we stopped to watch a daredevil bobcat driver working on the road. he had a 6 foot pile of dirt to move into the dump truck. he was bounding over the top of it, looking almost like he was trying to jump it. eli and i both laughed in amazement every time he did it.
i missed the photos of the jumping, but eli wanted more photos of the bobcat.

The health dept uses green dye in septic systems and sewer pipes to see if they are leaking...clearly whatever they put it in is leaking!
