This week, we visited a near-by lake to feed the ducks. The lake is pretty big, and there are several spots that the waterfowl like to hang out, so we're never sure if we’ll see mostly ducks or mostly geese. This time, there were plenty of ducks and the their adorable ducklings!
The only thing cuter than the ducklings was the bitty quacking noise Pippa made while watching them.
Or possibly Liam and Pippa holding hands, which never fails to make me feel all sentimental and mushy.
We weren’t quite ready to go home yet, so we headed to our local greenbelt for a little nature hike. This is one of my kids’ favorite activities—mostly because we get to go into the “deep, dark forest.” Liam always says this with an appropriate flair for the melodramatic.

I love activities like this because they feel so uncomplicated–lots of fun, but very little planning required.
