Another Visit to the Well-fed Ducks
The weather has turned out to be much cooler than it was slated to be probably due to the cloud cover. We've got a 20% chance of rain today and that small chance has blown in some nice fluffy rain clouds. I doubt anything will come of them but they have kept the sun at bay.
As a result, I decided to do lunch at the park again. Cal and I stopped to get more cereal for the ducks. I didn't make sandwiches this time and instead asked Mike to pick us up something from Sonic on his way to the park. The Sonic kids meals are giving away these really keen metal yo-yos and I wanted to see if I could get one I didn't already have. As luck would have it, I did. Hooray!
Anyway, Cal played on the swings and crawled on the big play contraption before lunch. Mike arrived with our hot dogs but left soon after eating because the wind was messing with his allergies. Lately his eyes seem to be taking quite a hit. Last night he only found relief when he put a cold, wet wash rag over his eyes. I'll be glad when whatever is causing him trouble stops blooming.
After Mike left, Cal and I fed the ducks and geese. Let me tell you, one bag of generic "toasted oat cereal" goes damn quick when every duck and goose in the area flocks to the feedbag. After a while Cal found it more entertaining to scoop up wet sand and throw it in the water so I ended up doling out the rest of the bag of cereal.
With no more food, the ducks and geese departed so we went back to the playground area. Cal was more interested in getting into my backpack purse than playing though so we packed everything up and headed home.
