Goose Induced Euphoria

Before I delve into out goose adventure let me first explain that while living in Richmond I have been hard pressed to see ducks.  They just don't seem to live around here.  It's always such an odd thing.  Geese, however, we have plenty of geese.

But geese are much trickier animals to deal with.  Like they can be mean.  So we haven't really gone out to feed the ducks (or geese) mostly in fear of them attacking my daughter.

Well, last Saturday we left pretty early in the morning for a walk around Maymont Park.  Apparently it doesn't open until 10 am so we found ourselves with an hour to kill.  Luckily right next to Maymont is Byrd Park.  So, we drove over and figured we could hang out, get a couple pics, etc.

We parked right next to a grassy field with tons of geese.  And let me tell you they had quite the impression on Cadance.

Can you see the look of excitement on her face.  She was off and chased those poor geese everywhere.  She really wanted to catch one.

Here's a video of her in action.

At some point, you can hear it in the video, the geese kind of went a little crazy.  Some of them actually started heading in her direction and I was kind of afraid they were going to try and chase her away.  But, luckily, they did not revolt in violence.

After the geese adventure we had a lot of fun enjoying a day of fabulous spring weather.  Here are some pictures that we took.
