The Duck Pond

About 2 weeks ago Austin and I decided to have a picnic at the Duck Pond in the park right by our church building. It was such a beautiful day. We made sandwiches for dinner and brought some bread for the ducks. We had such a great time. The park was not crowded, and the ducks were ready for some food. He are some cute pictures of Austin enjoying the duck pond. He seemed so peaceful and content watching the ducks. Then he got the bright idea to run along the edge of the pond (why wouldn't it be a bad idea?). I was just about to tell him how that would not be a good idea, and "Splash" into the pond he went. He was a little freaked out. The waster wasn't that deep, probably up to his shoulders sitting down. But Eww the duck poop, there is no filter in that pond. I asked him if he wanted to go home, he insisted on staying. Thank goodness we had an extra pair of pants in the car. It was a fun experience!
