Red Mountain Lake

I wanted to take the kids fishing. Just a simple little trout fishing excursion during the very last cold front of the year. Temperatures here are now in the 100s and yesterday and today a cold front is here dropping down to 80 degrees! So, off to this park/man-made lake we went.
I brought fishing poles and a bunch of bread to feed ducks. The kids were excited about that!

We walked around the whole lake, there were surprisingly quite a few geese. There were these two with three cygnets and my kids went crazy over them. Cuuuuuute!

One time one of the babies got close to Brooklyn and the big goose hissed at her! We laughed about that.

I took a ton of video footage (I’ve been really into filming everything lately) but didn’t take a single picture of them fishing! Oops. The fishing line backlashed after only like ten casts anyway so we didn’t catch anything.

There were two parks.

When I google mapped the park for the address earlier in the day Payson was with me so I viewed the satellite image of the place. He saw the yellow slide of the park and we talked about that. So anyway, we first played on the park with the orange slide and Payson wasn’t happy with that, he wanted to go to the yellow slide park. SOoooo, he took off for it. When I was helping Ember down the slide and not looking at him. So by the time I notice he’s halfway across the field. Stinker.

Brooklyn was playing with Ember and they were so freaking adorable together ♥

We had one piece of bread left so we went back over to the lake to throw it to the birds.

Ember was both mesmorized and terrified. haha

Before leaving I wanted a group shot in the shade. I’m trying to get more shots of the kids all together when we go places. It’s TOUGH because Ember HATES group shots.

By this time Ember was crying wanting to nurse because it’d been four hours since she’d last nursed and she normally likes to nurse every two hours (yes, still!) so I let Brooklyn take pictures and videos while I breastfed Ember.
