This year we have visited Big Spring Park more than any other year we’ve lived here. We like to hang out by the water and share a picnic lunch then explore the park.
I have enjoyed the beautiful effect of the different seasons – from cherry blossoms in spring to the lovely fall colors towards the end of the year.
We always bring bread to feed the birds and fish, and lately Gabe has brought his bike to ride too. Julia is content to play on the big quilt and wave at everyone who passes by :).
We visited Big Spring Park recently to take a walk and feed the fish. It turned out to be a rainy, overcast day, so I didn’t get as many nice photos as I had planned.
Gabe loves to toss bread crumbs over the side of the red footbridge down to the masses of fish below. I really wanted to catch some great shots of the action, but I was afraid to get my camera out, since it was starting to rain by the time we got to the bridge.
I did manage to take a few bird photos as we walked along though, like this duck who was quacking away, annoyed that I didn’t feed him because I was saving the bread crumbs for the fish.
And this goose settling in for a little nap as the waves gently buffeted him along.
Hopefully sometime soon we will go back and get the photos of the kids I was hoping for!
