Duck For Cover

While the girls were spending a few days with us during Spring Break, we decided to take our dinner to the park…feed the ducks…and just have some fun Outdoor Time…  I was SO nice to get outside for a change and enjoy the beautiful weather we were having.

Katie had fun trying to catch Butterflies or anything she found flying around with her new net that the Easter Bunny had left her…

After a few “picture taking” moments, the girls grabbed the bread and we were off further down the walking trail to FIND THE DUCKS…Katie just couldn’t wait.  When we got to the place where most of the ducks gather, there were only a couple. But that changed VERY QUICKLY….!!!

Suddenly, they were coming from EVERYWHERE…And honking their horns in glee…Hey Guys, FOOD…!!!…Yikes…!! After all, it had been a bad winter and I’m sure they were ready for People Food…:)

As the Flock Grew….and MORE were coming as fast as they could from across the river, the girls got a little nervous and suddenly headed for safety….Katie couldn’t throw her bread very far and the ducks got closer and closer….
and the girls started to RUN….!!!

Oh my, it was getting cloudy and it started to thunder and I was wondering if we would make it back without getting rained on.  We quickly started back down the trail with Katie on Cassie’s back. Thankfully, we made it back with only a few drops of rain coming down. We  headed for our favorite ICE CREAM SHOP and snuggled in the car to ENJOY..!!!  And just before we arrived HOME….we were caught in a horrible RAIN and HAIL STORM….with no where to DUCK FOR COVER…!!!! It was really scary and I truly thought the hail was going to break the windshield…But soon we were pulling into the garage and safely closed the door behind us…
