This evening, I had to take Lucy to the park to take some photographs. Zander was in trouble, so he couldn’t go to Uncle Chris’ house with Jace & Ashley, so he had to come with me.
While we were at the park shooting pictures, we stopped near a tree. Zander asked me if the berries on there were cherries, and I told him no, they were crabapples.
A few minutes later, we moved on to another part of the park. By this time, Zander was getting bored, so he asked, “Mom, when can I go feed the crabs?” My response was, “What crabs, honey?” To which he replied, “The crabs in the water. I have their food in my hand, we just need to go by the water so that I can give it to them.” When I asked to see what he had in his hand, he proudly opened it to reveal several crabapples just waiting to be eaten by the unseen crabs!
I guess if there are crabapples around, there must be crabs nearby!
