Soph and I decided to enjoy the beautiful weather a few days ago, so after her appointment for a new hair-do (she got a short bob), we headed to Runza and then out to picnic at a nearby lake.
My child has a whole arsenal of poses.
We walked around the lake a bit, and came upon a sweet mama and her babies…
(I was using my purse camera, and the ones of the ducks are a bit hazy for some reason. Maybe a bit too much sun bouncing off the water and all the white feathers!)
Suddenly, the mama duck started making little noises at her kids, rounding them up to leave…
Soon we saw why: the Bird Mafia was in town.
It was fascinating how all the other ducks cleared the path when they came through.
At this point, Sophie started pleading with me to vacate the premises, as she and her dad have had a run-in with a goose or two on a past adventure. But I wanted to keep snapping pictures!
And then I decided Sophie was right. So I rounded up my kid and left with the ducks.
After all, I'd rather not end up swimming with the fishes.
