09-15-2011 This week the two little girls and I went to the local lake. Just a nice sunny day outing. There were so many geese and a even few swans on the beach. We decided to get out of the van and get a closer look. The swans were very large, their height almost eye to eye with my three year old. I know this for a fact because they came close enough for us to decipher that they did not want us there. After we returned to our vehicle we were able to figure out that the reason they wanted us away was for the safety of their baby. The same reason I was leaving, for the safety of mine.
