Spectacle at the Park

Tuesday night my husband and I had dinner in the park. We'd packed burgers, heated them up at the office, and then grabbed some fries from a nearby fast food place before heading to the park. This is a popular park in the warmer months. It's Lion's Park in College Place, and it's one of the best places to spend a sunny Saturday afternoon or a cool summer evening. As we ate, we watched these kids running around the stream. The boy in the yellow shirt and the girl in the pink had been wading, and were wet up to their waists. But all of them found something extra special to observe that night: A mama duck and her TWELVE ducklings. Tomorrow I'll show you a closeup of part of the little family.

I never got round to doing that yet, I wanted to picknick at Widwood Park...

Ah... methinks next time I'll be in Walla Walla won't be picknick season anymore! If all goes well, it'll be Oct. or Nov., hopefully early enough to avoid something like last year's Thanksgiving weather! If not, 2010...

Europe is home! As to why I know WW so well... this is a public place and I'm a very private person so... You could e-mail me!

What a great romantic place to share a meal with the one you love.

And watch people enjoying the great outdoors...
