Feeding the Ducks

We went to the Roaring Spring fountain yesterday with the intention of feeding the ducks there. We stopped at the dollar store and bought two boxes of Cheerios and I gave each boy a huge sack of Cheerios. I think somebody beat us to it! The ducks didn't show much interest in the snacks the boys were generously tossing out into the water. There are a lot of fish in that pond as well, and the fish would swarm to the surface to eat the cereal. So at least it wasn't a total loss. We just didn't know we'd be feeding the fish instead of the ducks!

Here are some of the hungry fish that we saw.

I think the boys ate just as many Cheerios as they threw into the pond.

Being silly. . .

Here's Brooke when we arrived at the Spring:

And here she is toward the end of our excusion:

I really wish this photo of Trevor would've turned out better. I absolutely love that big, yellow home across the pond. I thought this was a nice picture of the scenery. . . and my Trevor, of course!

Last summer we came here and David had the boys climb these small trees. The boys did alright, but there were a few tears that day. I affectionately called this the Tree of Tears, which made David laugh. The boys were excited to climb the tree this time!

I hope you're not tired of looking at pictures from our fun day. I had a good time with the camera yesterday, so here are some bonus photos.

    Looks like tons of fun!

    And praise the Lord for whoever first invented Cheerios!!
