Day #3

Day #3 - Conservation Park

Today we headed out to the Conservation Park.  After we visited with the animals a short while, we  brought out a loaf of bread and fed the ducks, geese, and turkeys.

Gummi wasted no time in befriending these birds.

The little ones were a little hesitant at first, but soon they fed the birds like pros.  That is until one of the ducks nibbled at one of Pumpkins fingers.  Pumpkin repeated that, "the birdie took my finger!"

Grandma joined us on this outing.

The turkey finally came over to the fence.

We had heard that deer also lived at this conservation.  We didn't see any, which disappointed Honey.  But alas, as we were driving away. . .

they decided to pay a visit.  We didn't have any bread left to share, but upon seeing them, cheers erupted throughout the vehicle.

Our next stop was at the playground, where we shared in a picnic and enjoyed playing on the equipment.

We are back home now, having some quiet time (mama needs a rest!).  Tonight is our school's Open House, which the oldest 4 will be attending.  A lump just formed in my throat as I typed that last sentence.  Emotional breakdown to be continued. . .
