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!

Amanda,
That day it was nice. Yesterday we had snow and 35-50 KM Winds. Today it look like we are supposed to have thunderstorm, well see. It is sunny with clouds right now. Colorado has crazy weather,i would even go to say it's own weather system. ;)

Cute pictures! Congratulations on the new baby! That is very exciting. Colorado weather is kind of like Texas weather. It can change quickly. It is raining cats and dogs here and lots of flooding in some areas. Tomorrow it is supposed to be sunny and warm. Go figure! Keep up the blogging. We really like hearing about you guys. Aunt Nancy

How fun! Jumping in the pond sounds like something Ty would do. My mom says Ty reminds her of how crazy Austin is. Ty is such a boy and is fearless!! Add Ben into the picture and I am always exhausted by the end of the day!
