Today was insanely warm, so we packed up a picnic and went to feed the ducks and geese at Barnes Park. Those ducks gobbled up the yummy multi-grain bread, and one even got a bit feisty and snipped at Brooks' hand full of bread through the fence. Brooks was a tough little guy holding back his tears, and not holding a grudge. ;) From then on, he just preferred to be in Daddy's arms as he threw the bread to our hungry, feathered friends.
After the bread we brought for the ducks was gone, we laid out our blanket and set out our picnic dinner. It was a good spread. Our bellies quickly became full and happy. Then the boys headed over to the playground (I love watching them play together) while Ava and I relaxed on the blanket.
We stayed until the sun set and was out of sight, as if saying, "Good night." And on our drive home I couldn't help but think I am one lucky duck to have those three in my life...it's not a perfect life, but it's pretty wonderful.
