As my son continued with his morning drum camp this week, my daughters and I kept busy in town, since it's really too far for us to drive home and back before he finishes.
One small drawback to country life. But I'm not complainin', really.
One day we went to a local park, which has a great playground (but this week it truly was as hot there as that volcano...whew!)
We spent most of our time there hanging out in the shade with the ducks.
"Psst. Hey you..."
"...yeah, you, with the camera on your face. Got any food?"
(oh no, it's mom!)
"What did I tell you about talking to humans?"
"isn't there somewhere else you need to be?"
"Psst. Hey you, got any food?"
"Psst. You there. Got any food?"
"Yuck! Whatever made you guys think we like MOLDY bread, anyway?"
Awww, wittle baby duckies!
I just love it when they go bottoms up.
Speaking of bad hair days,
you just got to click over to Dana's blog and see her amazing picutres there today.
I don't actually know how many pictures of ducks and geese you might want to see,
but I'm betting it might be less than what I'm showing you.
Feel free to scroll down and skip to the end.
I won't mind.
though the ducks may be a little offended.
but I won't tell them, I promise.
Aw, but how can you not be dying over those little furry bundles of adorableness?
I could have watched them all day.
Okay, enough feathers for now.
Back to the playground.
Afterwards we went to the "blue bookstore", which is what my son has always called Books-a-Million (because the letters in their sign were blue). BeachPea made her momma proud and actually looked at some BOOKS.
While certain other folks went over to the bug-eyed lemur aisle.
And stayed there the whole time.
Then we picked up big brother and met Daddy for lunch.
Bug-eyed lemurs and all.
