Take Time to Stop and Feed the Ducks




I love May! It has always been my favorite month-the weather is finally shaping up, there are fun activities on the calendar, the school year is ending and there is the anticipation of summer right around the corner, before any of it has been wasted or the heat has gotten the best of me. Today we decided to take full advantage of it being May and go to feed the ducks at Salem Pond-something I can remember always doing growing up. We saw a guy catch a HUGE fish, seriously almost as long as my arm, and Dax immediately wanted to know WHY I hadn't brought his pole, obviously not remembering he was terrified and screamed like a girl last time he actually caught a fish. Hayes really wanted to catch a duck and put it on his wall. Asher found a few waddling across the grass and followed them to the water just like he was another baby duck, except he growled and yelled his own version of "duck!" at them until they calmly swam away. Plus its always exciting to walk over the bridge and worry that one of the boys (the littlest in particular) will try to jump off and give me a heart attack:) Its a pretty good way to spend an afternoon:)

It has been a long time since we fed the ducks. I'll have to take them soon. I am so excited about warm weather too. When we lived in GA/FL last year we fed the alligators. Once was enough for me and the kidos.

I grew up going to Salem pond as well. I love it there. It's been so long since I've been there. Looks beautiful as always.

Emily,
Hey Holly told me that you had a blog, so I googled you-and here you are. Cute pics of your boys! I can't wait for summer so our kids can play more often.
Talk to you soon.
