Simple Outings

Last week, Mom and I went on a walk with the kiddos to the neighborhood pond to feed the ducks--it was a great use for those leftover pancakes of which we needed to dispose. It was a simple outing, but so fulfilling. I really enjoy the fall air (even in the warmer TX weather), and the leaves were starting to turn and fall off the trees.
All the ducks gathered around Daniel and the food, and we finally got a picture with me and the kids (thanks Mom). Riley enjoyed her first stroller ride, at least when she was moving, and I had fun getting pictures of Grandma with Daniel and Riley (ok, I enjoyed taking pictures in general.)
On the way home from the pond, Daniel stopped to play at the playground. And then we all zonked when we got home. What a day!
Clint wanted to point out that those white (and black) ducks with the red faces are very ugly.


  1. Looks like a great outing. I love it when you can do something outdoors and enjoyable and everyone is worn out. It feels so good. The pictures are fun and the ducks are ugly. Riley, Welcome to your world. It is hard to believe it is that warm outside. We love you!!!

  2. I love families spending family time together.
    Looks like gma is enjoying wonderful grandchild time. Lucky woman, I can hardly wait!

  3. I'm impressed that you're getting out and about already. Just when you think you've got the first one figured out, another one comes along and you have entirely different dynamics. :) Glad to see you're all doing well.
