I wonder if there's jail time involved...

...for the theft of geese from a park?

Our Grandlittles are on Spring Break this week and they are busy, busy, busy.

On Monday, Mr. Jenny and I took them to a park by our house where they roller-skated and ran around a track and climbed on fitness equipment.




But the big distraction of the day was the geese. Or maybe these are just really giant ducks?





Well...

Whatever they are, the girls followed their new feathered friends around for almost 45 minutes. I'm thinking I'm going to take some of the empty cardboard boxes from our move and bring them home with me so I can get some rest on Wednesday!

I think it's a pretty great idea...

And I'm sure Oskar, the weiner dog, would like some new, feathered friends, too!

What a beautiful day! It looks like they had a blast.

Oh Jenny geese are very frightening creatures!!! They will keep Oskar in his corner absolutely!!!!!!
Best watch dogs you could ever have.

As good of an idea as it sounds I'm afraid all the poop would scare me away. I'll never forget being so excited about ducks being at our campground till the next morning when I discovered the hundreds of poo piles all around - eek.

This is a beautiful park, Jenny, and it looks like your grand daughters enjoyed spending time in it.

Oh I am sure there is jail time. Someone stole the black swan's from Lake Eola and there was definitely jail time. You are a good grammy taking those girls to the park. Maybe you had a teensy weenie idea to wear them down so you could get peace when you went home?? Well it works for our girls, Baby and Tinker. They sleep the remaining of the day. Ah adventures in dogland.~Ames

Sounds like you've found something that will woo your grandkids into loving your new digs!

Hope you had a comfortable place to sit while the girls were burning off some energy.

Looks like Julia isn't having any problems with her arm! I still get goosebumps thinking about it.

What a perfect way to burn off some energy ... watch those geese ... they can be mean & scary if they want to be .... i do hope you can get some rest ... i dont know how you manage to do everything that you do ...

They are ducks. :-) It looks like they all had fun.

Donna Heber said...

Good idea Jenny. They are adorable!

I would be surprised if you had geese because we don't have them here. I think it might be too warm? Those Canadian Geese are all over the place around the NYC area where I grew up. The funny thing is that they weren't there when I was a kid. Maybe it got too crowded in Canada? I would say those are ducks.

What a cool park. My grandkids would love it.

We once stayed in the dirtiest, dustiest, darkest campground, and the girls always want to go back. Why? You guessed it.. ducks.

It sure would be nice to have the energy that kids have!

Sounds like the grand littles are settling in to the idea of your new home too. I'd say leave the geese at the park...you won't like the mess they make. ;)

Definitely ducks. You can chase ducks, but geese will chase you! And bite you, too.
We are having spring break here, too.
