So, we walk past this nice bend in the river almost daily, and the kids are obsessed with chasing the ducks and geese. They tell me every day that they are going to "catch a duck", and I laugh and wish them good luck and watch them run around like lunatics and of course not catch any.
About two minutes after I snapped this picture, that woman pulled out a bunch of bread and was immediately mobbed by the geese. Otto saw his opportunity and ran up behind the geese and grabbed the biggest one. He picked it up and held it for a split second before it freaked out and started flapping its wings. As we were leaving, I congratulated Otto on finally realizing his goal of catching a goose, and he told me his plan: "next time, mama, you bring bread and hold it and then I can catch even more!"
