All right, Ben has finished loading his photos onto the computer, so I can get back to our vacation. Oh, and these pictures were taken mostly by Jeff and Ben, so thanks to them for the great photos!
The next day we took the ferry to Washington Island. It was the first time Megan and Amelia had been on a boat, and Megan loved it! She wanted to look over the railing at the water, and I had to hold on pretty tight because she seemed determined to reach it. Then she wanted to explore the ferry, and we were kept busy helping her walk laps around the boat. Amelia wanted nothing more than to sit on Grandma's lap at first and watch the water from a distance, but on the return ferry, she did venture away from the safety of Grandma's lap to look at the water.
We also toured the farm, where Amelia and Dinah (the cat) got to ride a wooden horse. The farm had some pretty chickens that Amelia got to feed, but otherwise it was mostly displays of old equipment that the girls were not very interested in.
Finally, we climbed the lookout tower (Amelia and Grandma counted 193 steps!) and had a great view of the gorgeous fall trees. Jeff and Jane always try to take a photo of their feet somewhere scenic on vacation, and Amelia wanted to get her feet in the shot, too.
