"Sunshine... On My Down... Makes Me Happeee!"


Meet Percy and Priscilla.

Some of you will remember them
from earlier posts.

They were just tiny when we brought
 the two of them home April 4 2010.
They were so sweet...and soft.



They were such sweet little goslings
and would follow me around like I was


They grew up so fast. Too fast.

This day we had just had a big rainstorm
and the 'pond' hubby had dug 
just for them was full and overflowing.

The sun was shining
and it was nice and warm so 
I let them out to play.

They followed me to the water.



If a goose could smile...
then I would say this was a
smile.





They were giddy and goofy
and they had a blast.





They took a little break and ate a snack...
tasty grass!



Then went back in the water
and blew a few bubbles.


And preened themselves.


Then it was time to 
head back to the pen.

It was a good day.



I hope you enjoyed a little walk
down memory lane with me.

:)

and visit the other bloggers
taking part this week.

I hope your week is a good one!

I enjoyed taking that walk with you and watching the geese play in the water. I was smiling and chuckling the whole time! Thank you for linking these wonderful photos of Percy and Priscilla to Sunlit Sunday.

Oh how fun! The joy of having pets, or in your case babies. They are beautiful, I would love that! (I sent you a friend request of face book) ;D

Betsy said...

They're so cute! How fun to watch them enjoy the day. One looked like it was lifting its face to the sun--such a universal instinct whether you're a human or an animal.

Oh my "Mother Maura Goose!" I loved this so much . . . ADORABLE! It reminded me of one of my very favorite children's stories, Robert McCloskey's, Make Way For Ducklings . . .

Oh my, I've never enjoyed geese so much! First of all, your photos of them were awesome. Such cuties! I really really loved them.

Little ducklings and goslings grow up too fast! We've had our share of 'puff balls' around the pond and I look forward to seeing a few more this year. I love the 'heading back to the pen' photo!

Ashley Ashbee said...

Aaaaaaw! Sometimes we don't even need to anthropomorphize animals to see that they are happy.

karen - Simply Inspired said...

-xok.

Oh how sweet they are! I would love to have some for pets, but my dogs would probably get them. It was so pretty here today, not warm, but pretty. I was so happy to see the sunshine, I went outside and washed windows!

When I first saw your post title, I thought "what? I don't remember the song going like that." :/ But then I had to laugh.
Such sweet little babies and how fun to watch them as they have a great time on a warm day.
Great photos..you got some wonderful shots, Maura.

Beatnheart said...

I remember when you introduced them to us... You know I love your farm animal stories.

Sandie said...

Hi Maura, just popping over from Kath's blog, Hillside Cottage' in the UK.
Lovely to see your 'critters',especially the Shit zu, Bubba, he's just like my Bobby, sadly put to sleep 18months ago.

You seem to have a gorgeous garden there!

Have a great week,

Sandie xx
