We Tried...

Every year Derek and I pick a fall day to go feed the Canadian Geese that come up here for the summer. As it is fall they are starting to gather and go for practice flights to get fit for the journey south. Derek and I usually go to the city to do this but since we have a little pond right by our place we decided to go there instead and give the big birds a little treat. And we thought Anders would love it too.

Well we tried and tried, but our local flock would not give us the time of day. We would walk by throwing bread and they would take off, all three herds of 'em (can you call a flock a herd?). Either the people around here don't like to feed the geese or the geese get enough grain from the farmers fields to fill their little bellies so they don't understand how delicious bread can be. And I saved a loaf all week especially for them too.





Oh well, we loved to watch all the geese fly overhead so close trying to get into their V's even though Derek was a little worried to get pooped on :)

Aw he is super adorable! Love the little monster hat. Too bad the dumb geese wouldn't let you feed them.
