Feeding the Ducks at the Martinez Wetlands

One of the last adventures I was able to go on with some of my girlfriends was to the Martinez Wetlands.  It is about 15 minutes from our apartments and has great walking trails throughout the wetlands leading to the ocean.  Hundreds of birds live within this habitat so we thought it would be a great opportunity to bring bread for the birds to snack on.  The kids had a blast feeding and chasing the birds around the beach and park.

L to R: Sienna, Kaiden, Ava, and Daxton (Brooks and Hadley came a little later.)

Daxton took awhile to get used to the number of birds, but ended up having a blast.  He was especially mad at me when I wouldn't let him charge into the lake after the birds.

Sweetest neighbors ever!

We loved living across the sidewalk to these two adorable sisters.

The second Brooks showed up, he started chasing after the birds.  It was pretty funny to see hundreds of birds take to the sky in order to get clear of his path!  While on the other hand, sweet Hadley sat calmly in her stroller smiling at everyone.

After feeding the birds, we all decided to walk around the park and out to the pier.  On our way we found some great cattails that Brooks was super excited about.

Just taking a break for a thoughtful loving mother moment...

Once we got out to the pier the wind picked up pretty crazy.  The kids loved being able to explore although we did have to keep a close eye on each of them!

It was a great afternoon!
I know I've said this time and again, but I've been blessed with great friends.  I will miss them all very much!
