A few weeks ago, we found out about a lovely little nature park in our area. We checked it out and we amazed at how tame and curious the local wildlife was, so we decided to take our grandson today. Well, what a great time. There were swans, ducks, song birds, rabbits, squirrrels, and chipmunks, all waiting for a free food handout and they weren't disappointed. Corson was especially taken with the hoards of cheeky chipmunks, just waiting for their next peanut lol! They were running circles around him, trying to get his attention, and they did. It was such a fun day for all of us, after our grandson had worked so hard at his hockey workout. We'll go back in a week or two with more food, when we can stay a little longer. Enjoy the pictures. and if you click on them, they should enlarge for you :o)

We've had such a special Canada Day weekend. I don't post as many
pictures of our grandson any more, but these were taken by our daughter
this weekend, down at the lake, in their subdivision. They discovered the swan they have dubbed "brown bread", for her preferences in food, had had babies! The pictures are wonderful and I wanted
to share, so our family and friends can see how much Corson has grown.
