On Sunday after our visit to see The Erickson Gardens, we traveled on to Luck and dropped in on Kyle and Heather and family. We gave them a little warning and they invited us to come for supper.

We had a good spot on their deck watching them as they came in off the lake.
The boys headed off to basketball practice and the girls went home with Ryan for a sleep over.
It was just Kyle and Heather and Jens, Dad and Ev and me to enjoy the great food and visiting.
Jens was into the watermelon big time.
|Jens...no shirt, no shoes, all the watermelon you want|
|It's great to be a baby in the summertime|
Jens got a real silly streak going and really put on a show for all of us, but both Kyle and I thought he was really shining towards Dad. We think that there was a real Valdemar to Valdemar connection going on.
Dad got a real kick out of this little guy, he was glad we got to spend some time with him.
|Jens Henry Valdemar was checking out Great Grandpa Valdemar's cane|
After dinner, Jens got to have a bath and help Mom with the dishes.
|Jens likes washing dishes|
|Dad and Kyle had some visit time on the deck while we girls chatted and watched Jens get his bath.|

We left for Rice Lake just after sundown.
As always at that time of day, it is risky driving with deer around.But I did not think that we would see our first 2 deer of the drive in the Park Avenue Park at Luck.
|Ev noticed this deer standing in the park, he trotted across the road to join another buck before going into the woods.|
We saw several other deer along our trip back to Rice Lake, but luckily they stayed off the road.
A fun Sunday for sure.
We hope to drop in on more of the nieces and nephews over the summer for visits.
