It was cold here in our tiny corner of the world on New Year’s Day. But instead of staying inside our warm and cozy house, I bundled the three little ones up and took them to our local lake. It had been raining the past few days, and I thought we should get out and enjoy this first day of 2011.
(of course when I say “bundled up” I mean I put them in jeans and a long sleeved shirt — we are in southern CA, remember!)
Andrew and Aislynn rode on the path…
and I tried to keep up while pushing Aria in her stroller.
We stopped often to check out the water.
and to take a few “capturing the moment” photos
Andrew was happy in this shot
He’s handsome even when he’s sulking.
Pretty lake view!
It’s an exact mile walking around this lake. We come here a lot. The kids like to ride around, and I like the exercise. Oh, and we like to feed the ducks. Although on this day I noticed for the first time the sign that read: DO NOT FEED DUCKS and then listed all the reasons why it’s bad to do so. Where did that sign come from! ( I guess our duck feeding days are over. Now that I’ve seen the sign, I can’t claim ignorance if caught. Darn!)
