A New Adventure Today

We've lived here for 4-1/2 months now and today's the first day that we explored the pond. The previous homeowner left a bag of fish food behind, so today Shawn decided that we were going to go feed the fish.

We all took off toward the pond

We made it to the bridge that Shawn built a couple weeks ago. Sam acted as if he were walking a tightrope and Sarah just zipped over it like a cat.

The space here between the trees is the entrance to another section of our property. Shawn calls it "The Forbidden Meadow" because it's hidden so well. The other three sides of the meadow are surrounded by trees.

We made it to the pond and tossed in some fish food. Then we waited.

And we waited some more.

We saw one "thing" show interest in the food, but are unsure whether it was fish or turtle. So, either we have fish that aren't interested in our fish food or we just don't have fish...I'm thinking that restocking the pond might be a future project.

The kids started losing interest, so we gave up on fish feeding.

This is a section of our woods that Shawn hasn't had a chance to explore yet. I thought it was pretty.

On the way back, Sam decided that we could walk the "tightrope" bridge all by himself...and he did...very slowly and very carefully!

Ok, so I used the word "adventure" very loosely. We enjoyed it though. It's always fun to go out and explore new places on our property.
