Going to the Pond

Last night after dinner we took a walk to our neighborhood pond. The kids love to play there (they had already been over there for 2 hours earlier with my dad since he was watching them yesterday and today). My son likes to see the alligators! They are not real...they are used to scare away the geese so that the pond area stays nice. However, they are very real-looking and the police did get several calls the first week about there being real alligators in the pond :)

Here are some pictures :)

Walking to the pond (or should I say "riding?")

They are trying to catch the alligator in order to flip him over (he was upside down and not doing any good!)

My daughter is "yelling" at the alligator to stay in the middle - the wind was so strong that every time she pushed it out he came right back to her.

My dad and my daughter trying to put it on the other side of the pond so it will stay in the middle :)

My princess :)

My adorable little boy!

This is a picture of them playing Mario Kart on Sunday...they're getting pretty good at it!

I wish we had alligators in our ponds--the geese are EVERYWHERE and with that? Geese poop is EVERYWHERE :)

Love the pictures of the kids--they are so adorable :)

What a great little neighbourhood pond! We don't have those in Toronto (at least in the city)... must be a lovely place to take a walk!!

And you should also post photos more often... your kids are precious!!!
