Feeding the Ducks and Publix

We went to Furman University (which, I must say, is one of the most beautiful colleges I have ever seen). We like to go there and feed the ducks and walk at the lake. We took our lunch and had a picnic.
This is a picture of the bell tower. We usually drive over and park close enough to walk and feed the ducks there. They had the road blocked because they are doing lots of work. So we parked across the lake and I snapped this picture.

The boys were trying to feed the turtles too but the ducks wouldn't allow it.
There were lots of ducks and they kept coming and coming.
Jack and Maci Clare liked eating the bread instead of feeding it to the ducks.
The late comers didn't get too much. They got chips because the bread was gone. The swan closest to the camera is a baby swan. It was so funny looking. The Ugly Duckling.

We decided to walk over to the bell tower and we took a little detour. There were Canadian geese on the walkway. Zane was really excited that he got that close.


We finally made it to the bell tower. I did manage to get a halfway decent picture.
And this one with my mom.

After we left Furman, I ran by Publix to score some deals. I bought:
8 boxes of Pop Tarts
6 boxes of Granolas (Quaker and Fiber One)
2 boxes of Live Active cereal
2 rolls of Basic Paper Towels
3 cans of Chef BoyarDee Ravioli
4 boxes of Kraft Deluxe Shells and Cheese
4 boxes of Eggo Waffles
5 boxes of Betty Crocker Supreme Brownie Mix

The total was roughly $46 and I paid $20.37. Another successful shopping trip with some extras to give away.

I finally had time to sit down and check out your blog. Feeding the ducks looks neat--we didn't get that done when we visited!
