Or Black & White Flamingos.

While six grandchildren were visiting this weekend, we had an opportunity to go for a short walk on the creek. Just turned 8-year old Goober Evalina and I were doing a little bird watching.

Goober:   OH!  Grandma!  Look at those!

Grandma:  Uh huh.  Two Canadian Geese.

Goober (Sighs, and in a disappointed tone):  I thought they were short Ostrich.

Then she walks ahead of me and I hear her add quietly, "Or Black and White Flamingos."

Well didn't you know that the ancestors of the canadian geese were flamingos? They migrated from Florida.

Doesn't matter which. They all taste good on the dinner table.

I love that she has such a magical imagination! I'm pretty sure that Heather is right about the Canada Geese ancesty too...better tell Goober.

Love it (o:
My four year old grand baked goodies with her Mom and sisters and took it to her Dad's work. She walks in the door and proudly announces, "We brought Bikini bread"!
