What began as a trip to the grocery store became a trip to the lake as we stepped outside and realized what a beautiful morning it was. I grabbed my camera, we stopped for muffins and then walked down to the lake.
We may not have much snow here yet but it has still been cold enough to turn the lake shore into an ice shore.
The boys were pretty excited by the crunchy ice and we didn't move far from this spot.
Did you know that two boys, aged almost 5 and 6 and a half, don't believe their mother when she tells them the rocks might be slippery and that if they get too close to the edge, the ice might not hold their weight? It's true. They don't believe her until they try it themselves. Fortunately, no one was lost in the lake.
The numerous swans, geese and ducks thought the boys were throwing food in the water, not ice. It didn't take long before we had many visitors. this juvenile swan was especially interested in Keegan.
Impromptu outings. My favourite.
