Journalling reads: We decided it would be a nice treat to take the kids to Hinksey Park. The plan was swimming in the outdoor pool and enjoying a snack at the cafe, before feeding the ducks, geese and swans and then spending the afternoon playing in the park. Nothing really went to plan, and by the time we got to the park nobody was in a very good mood. Everyone cheered up a bit after swimming but Lukas kept being a pain and tormenting Logan. After an hour we said it was time to get out, Leia and Logan were starting to get cold, this set off a tantrum because Lukas didn’t get his own way about going and playing in the sprinklers. Then we had an incident with Lukas touching stuff he had been told not to, outside the cafe and getting us all told off by the manager, even though we apologised for Lukas’s behaviour, we were feeling too embarrassed to queue up and buy food. As we headed over towards the pond we were all hungry and feeling miserable. Usually everyone feeding the birds and we had saved up a whole carrier bag full of bread, so we could feed them for longer. As we started to get out the bread, we spotted these teeny tiny baby geese. They were so cute and fluffy that we forgot all about how grumpy we had been feeling. These ones were obviously a bit more mature as they looked just like the adult geese only smaller and fluffier, but there were some smaller one that looked like balls of fluff on legs. It was adorable watching them trying to eat chunks of bread that were bigger than they were although they seemed to prefer eating the crumpets. We didn’t get manage to get many photos though as the adults kept hissing at us when we got close.
