Just Ducky...

One of the first words John learned to say was "duck".  He has always be fond of ducks...whether it was feeding them at the pond, singing about them, reading about them, playing with them in the bath tub, or going to Quick Quack car wash - he loves the ducks!!

You could imagine my surprise when I opened my shutters yesterday to see three little ducks in my yard!  John was so excited - he immediately wanted to feed them.  I snapped a couple of pictures through the window first....fearing that the second we open the front door they would fly away.IMG_6289IMG_6290 When I opened the door and the ducks seen the sack of bread....here they come.  It was so much fun for John to feed ducks - on his own front porch.  He wanted to pet them, hug them, and welcome them in our home.IMG_6291IMG_6293The ducks - named Daffy, Donald, & Daisy stayed most of the day in our front yard.  A neighbor called and said "Great -  I seen you feed them.  They are going to stick around like cats!"  We both had a good laugh over that.IMG_6294IMG_6297The ducks left sometime in the late afternoon but John has yet to forget.  I have had to let him check at least 100 times that the ducks are no longer here.  I promised him when the wind stops blowing like a hurricane we will go visit them.
