Synchronized World Breast Feeding Day

It is World Breast Feeding Week and today was a special event. All around the world at 10 AM, women planned to breastfeed their babes together. Read more here.
Our poor little group needed 25 people and we only got 23 so we won't count to the Guinness Book but will count to a national record I believe. My nurslings were very cooperative for their one minute group nurse session. Athena was excited to get milk in the park since I haven't nursed her out in a LONG time. It then quite possibly contributed to a let down of extreme emotions in her that were not fun, but she eventually regained composure and threw some bark around with a friend.
We had a cool park visitor, Athena was very interested but wanted to be sure he was a friendly snake.
***apparently it was a California Kingsnake, Chris asked a friend of his who said, "They're not poisonous, and they actally are immune to rattlesnakes and eat them."
