When Jax Fed the Ducks

Okay, I regret what I said before...
Summer...please come back.

It's getting really cold here, so I figured I could add one more thing to my Fall to-do list and take Jax to feed the ducks before the temperature got even lower. We packed some bread and headed to one of our favorite spots. We had come before during summer when the ducks were pretty calm. They would swim and waddle around and occasionally eat the bread we threw. This time of the year (with lots less people and lots less bread?) they are INSANE. They swarm at your feet and take bread right out of your hands. Fun for bigger kids...scary for tiny baby boys.
I had a picture of him holding onto my leg and somehow it totally disappeared. Bummer.
But after about a minute, he was really comfortable. I didn't give him much bread, because I didn't want the ducks to totally attack, but he had lots of fun talking and chasing and following them. He even got on all fours and turned around- attempting to follow them right into the pond.

Okay, these are my guilt-bringing pictures.
I backed away a little bit so I could get a picture of Jax with all the ducks and he totally face-planted right on the ground. I thought it was just dirt until I smelled it. It wasn't. So disgusting.

We cleaned up in the bathroom.

Then, we got swarmed by the ducks again.
(and a rooster, I guess)

Then we were done.
