Looking for "Elmo"

We decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and take a hike this morning at Lake Elmo Regional Park. Having looked at a trail map, Rorie, Dave and I decided upon a 3.8 mile loop around the lake that would be somewhat flat (so that Al could keep up when she decided to walk) and afford good birdwatching. What we failed to predict was that Alex would want to walk the WHOLE time....resulting in our turning around after 45 minutes and approximately 3/4 of a mile into the trail. Little legs do not go as far as big legs-- even when they're working really hard! All that, and we never did find Elmo :-)
