Fun Friday Night

Happy Family
Sometimes we all just need to get out of the house. I hope that you feel that way too and it's not just me. Friday night was one of those nights. Everyone was getting just a little grouchy, so we talked about lots of different places to spend the evening, but ended up at Thanksgiving Point Gardens. We don't come here very often, but when we do we always enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.

It ended up being eventful for us. We arrived a little after 7:00 and they made sure to remind us that they close at 8:00. We promised them we'd hurry. We couldn't believe our luck as we wandered through the gardens. We spotted a muskrat gathering grass for his nest. We watched him for about 5 minutes as he gathered grass, then jumped down some rocks and swam across the pond into the bushes. We also spotted a large bullfrog.

We fed the fish. WOW! These koi were crazy and obviously used to being fed. We couldn't believe how many there were, but Seth loved it!

We also saw two little cottontails on our way out. I only had my cell phone because I hadn't planned on taking pictures, but I should know better by now. Every night is an adventure in the Ockey family.
