Seven Swans a Swimming...

We're on day seven of our "12 Days of Christmas" for our children. I must admit this was the most challenging day to come up with something frugal and fun for today. Luckily, my husband came to the rescue! He suggested that we make a family outing of going to a local pond that is the home for many birds. We didn't know if there would be swans or not, but it fit well enough. Armed with a loaf of bread, we headed out. 

In the end, we didn't find any swans, but there were at least seven times seven other birds, including various kinds of ducks, geese, coots, and seagulls! The boys had not been there since they were small, and I daresay even our teenager had a lot of fun! They are enjoying this "12 Days of Christmas" journey, and now discuss the possibilities for the next day. It's interesting to hear what they come up with, though they have not yet guessed any of the "days". I will be remembering some of their ideas for next year, though!

Check out the rest of our 12 Days of Christmas: Day 6, Day 5, Day 4, Day 3, Day 2, Day 1
