Who would believe that we, as North Iowans, would be spending a beautiful day outside on the last day of 2011?
The temperature was 45 degrees at 4:15 pm and perfect to go spend time at East Park, riding around in a convertible or take a walk with a friend.
We didn’t have to worry about warming up the vehicle, shoveling out the driveway, sliding through the stop sign or falling down on our rumps.
This was a great way to end the year.
The Zimmerly Family took advantage of the warm weather by taking their children to East Park to feed the deer and the ducks. The parents, with a smile on their face commented, “I think parents want to wear the children out, so they will go to bed early. That way we can go out sooner to celebrate the New Year.
Aunt Jennifer, was teaching her nephew, Caden Tapp, how to feed the animals. A couple times he had to be reminded, “Don’t rush up on them, it scares them, and then they run away.” Caden inquired about the bread that they were feeding the animals. “Can we eat this?”
“No,” says his Aunt, “That’s only for the animals”. She had got it from the bread store, that saves the old bread for this purpose. “Oh,” says Caden, “I already ate some”.
