nature walk and a day with friends

Wednesday morning, Charlie, Melody, and I met our friends, Ava and Jack, at the pond and went on a little nature walk.

Here they are trying to sneak up on some ducks. That's Ava's brother, Jack. We call him Little Jack.

Where was Charlie? Right here, very interested in this leaf, which, by the way, he did not eat. Shocking, I know.
Here they are on this big swing. They are all looking at this dude trimming the hedges near the pond. All except Ava. She's trying to hug everyone at one time.


Look fish!

There they are! We saw a few turtles too. And, for the record, these giant goldfish really freak me out.

We're missing one...


There he is! Yes, I know, this is about the cutest picture ever.



Just as we were about to leave he spotted the fish. He didn't want to go at first, but then he saw another leaf which distracted him. Who knew a leaf or two was all he needed to be happy!

I really love this post. The pics are darling, but I especially love seeing the kids so engaged with stuff. Seeing them so interested makes the fish and the leaves seem more interesting!

What a sweet picture of all of them! What a great day to spend outdoors! Love Charlie's little smile, he's adorable!

Looks like y'all had alot of fun! Was it really cool enough to warrant long sleeves over there? Where are those temps when I need them?!

And you're freaked out by large goldfish, too? I'll go with you on a spider. And even those horrid geckos (that are making my skin crawl as I type their name). But a goldfish? I just don't get those.

OMG that's hilarious - we went there the days after you did and my kids kept saying, "Look at the giant goldfish!" and I kept telling them they were actually goldfish, although I couldn't identify the breed - LOL.

about the giant goldfish, a friend has a pond (really it could be a lake, but she lives in town) in her back yard and has several fish that are as big as my 7 year old kid. talk about freaky...they all have names too...weird, i know. but having THAT kid of friends makes me seem more normal, right?

Brandi said...

How cute.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Rachel said...

That may be my new favorite picture of Charlie!

And for some reason, just typing his name today reminded me of that youtube hit - "Charlie Bit Me" - and I'm laughing to myself like a little idiot right now.

And those giant goldfish FREAK ME OUT. I hear ya.

I hate seeing those giant goldfish at the chinese place when we go eat there. My kids want to know if they chop them up and put them in the food when they die. *gag* Sick kids.

Looks like you guys had a great time!
