Simple things – feeding the ducks

What a lovely day it’s been today, so nice to have some sunshine  It’s the simple things – feeding the ducks, that just make me smile. Firstly we got together with some of our NCT group for a play session, and also to wish a little chap happy 1st birthday for tomorrow.  He’s the eldest of our second generation kiddies – where HAS that year gone!!!

Simple things - feeding the ducks

Then home for some lunch, and then a trip to our nearest duck pond with some bread.  I love feeding the ducks with my son (whilst being scared stiff that he’ll fall in at any moment!).  He gets so excited when the ducks start swimming over to him.  It’s a very simple activity and something that spans the generations.  I remember feeding the ducks with my Mum, and I still enjoy it now. We’re very lucky to have a few great duck ponds within fairly easy reach and I normally have some ‘old’ bread waiting in the freezer for days like today. I break it all up in advance so my son can just get on with it when we get to the pond.

The weather was lovely, so in-between duck feeding sessions we walked around the pond, stopped for a snack break in the sunshine before heading home.  A lovely afternoon with my boy, simple things – feeding the ducks.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 9 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.

  1. You are so right about the simple things. Kids can help us remember that in life, if we let them. And, yay, over 40 and mom to one! That’s me too!!

  2. My toddlers love feeding the ducks. My daughter used to think the bread was for her to begin with, but she now knows to throw little pieces for the ducks and is very enthusiastic about it xx #PoCoLo

  3. Ah we love going to feed the ducks. I have to make sure I get new bread though as I think my little one eats more of the bread than the ducks!! Popping over from #PoCoLo. Off to read some more of your blog xxxx
