Friday in the Park with Nyan

08 Jun

Friday was a warm summer day in Iowa, so Grandma, Aunt Val and Daddy took Nyan Thomas to the creatively named City Park for a bit of fun. They have a small section of amusement rides – nothing fancy, but for 75 cents a ride, who’s complaining?

One of Daddy’s favorite rides growing up was the miniature train that snakes a long oval around part of the park. On Friday, we boarded the black-and-gold (of course) train and went for a couple of laps.

Then it was off to the merry-go-round:

Finally, Nyan and Daddy relaxed in the grass a bit.

Back home, Nyan Thomas got to know Ripley, Aunt Val and Uncle Steve’s dog whom they brought with them on their day trip to Iowa City. Ripley is a very sweet and gentle dog, and while Nyan kept his distance at first, eventually his curiosity got the better of him, and he and Ripley became pals.

    Craig gets all the credit for training his dog, Ripley — we just get the pleasure of caring for our “grand-dog” while her “Dad” is at work! She is definitely a good dog (and smart, too!!)
