Quack, Quack…

…waddle, waddle. Mama and her 8 ducklings came to visit.

I’ll be seeing my mama and pops and 6 of their ducklings this weekend. There will probably be a lot of quacking going on. Some of us are at the waddling stage, too. But back to mama duck and her ducklings…

They decided they wanted to eat the bird seed that falls from the bird feeder while I was mowing close by. I left them in peace and mowed another section of the yard until they were done. We think this is the mama duck that visits us every year. This is the first year she’s waddled about our yard with ducklings. We think her eggs got eaten last year.

Things are busy around here as we get ready for a couple of events. Tomorrow we have a dinner here for our end of session celebration with our small group. Then bright and early dark and early on Friday Dear is dropping me off at the airport. I’m flying to Southern California for our nephews wedding in a barn. Makes me think about one of my father’s favorite things to say when we’d leave a door open “Were you born in a barn?” Now Levi and Kristin can say they were married in a barn. Maybe they should have their first babe in a barn. (I digress again) Dear will be joining me later in SoCal. We’re excited that Josh and Laura and Katie will be joining us, too. It’s been a couple months since we’ve seen Katie and we’re looking forward to spending some time with her.

What’s new in your neck of the woods?

  1. How adorable is that? Anything baby is cute and having an entire flock in your yard must bring about gleeful smiles!! Have a good time in S. Cal. I’m sure the barn will be amazing…can’t wait to see! Happy times ahead for you! What’s new here? We started to paint our house. It will be a slow go…..but we are bringing in a professional painter to do the difficult areas! yeah!!

  2. My neck of the woods has baby ducklings and goslings too! Can’t quite figure it out, but it looks like there may be a family or two with 15 chicks.

  3. Don’t you just love spring? Those quacker photos are fantastic.
    Enjoy the days ahead. I am so happy you get to be with family!

  4. What wonderful photos you’ve taken! That grass is so lush and green. So is mine and in desperate need of a mow. Guess I had best put on my mowing shoes and crank up the mower.

    Have a wonderful time in So Cal at the wedding. How much fun it will be to see all the family again! Are you running out of family members to marry off yet? =D
