Feeding the ducks

Today we crossed another item off our summer 2015 bucket list and went down to water front park to feed the ducks.  We invited Jhena, Layla, and Hunter, along with Liz, Charlie, and Jack to join us for a fun morning of sun, ducks and fish, lunch, and we ended at a spray park.  It was such a fun day!

I packed individual bags of stale cheerios for all the kids (I can't believe we had stale cheerios but such is life) and also brought old bread I had been saving for just this occasion.  Jhena and Liz brought bread and buns and we were set for a morning of feeding all the animals.  The kids loved being allowed to throw the food into the water and watch the birds, ducks, and fish go after it.

 The kids had a blast!

 Once we were out of food, we went inside the torpedo factory to use the bathroom and develop a game plan.  When we came out the kids saw this fountain and we gave them pennies to throw in and make a wish.

Once they all wished about 9 wishes, we gathered the big kids for a group photo.

 They are a silly bunch...

but they are all so cute!

We had a picnic after these photos and then drove over to a playground/ spray park in Alexandria.  It was such a fun day, but we were very tired when we got home.  Now it's time to relax and enjoy a quiet evening at home with my favorites.

Happy Thursday!
