Pelicans having fun during the summer! My granddaughter thought they were the storks bringing another baby!

November 13th, 2013, 11pm

It was -3°C with few clouds. The breeze was light.

When our granddaughter asked where do babies come from, we told her the story about the stork. He was a bird with long wings, legs and beak that was strong enough to carry a baby to a mommy or daddy that was lonely for a baby. If God thought they were ready to be a mommy or daddy, then he would call on one his storks to come and get a baby to take as a gift to parents that would love their baby and do the best they could to love that baby. As we were on our way to Brandon, we came across some pelicans that were just flying and landing in the water, and she started yelling stop, stop! There is the stork, I want to see what kind of baby it has, she simply wanted to know if it looked like her as she has been asking her mommy and daddy for a baby sister. Although she is only four years of age, she sure has an imagination and knows how to use the information she gathers when she asks questions. Looking through pictures, brings a warm smile to my face and makes my heart filled with joy as I remember little moment spent with my granddaughter and all of her curiosity as she is growing. And No mommy and daddy are not having another baby as of yet.
