there's a lovely little pond, just between our house and downtown, which always has lots of ducks. i've been meaning to take channing for quite some time now and keep forgetting about it. we finally made our first visit the other morning, in which c told me she planned on "hunting for alligators" at the pond. she called out for and looked for alligators the entire time...only to find "just ducks". maybe next time sweet bird.
