A Surprise Visit...

Last week Coop and I were in my room folding laundry, when we heard a strange noise outside on the deck. I peeked out and saw a mama duck quacking loudly at her TEN baby ducklings! I quickly grabbed my camera and picked Coop up (since he had no shoes). Our yard is in the process of getting totally redone, and it was pretty filthy out there, but we still had fun following them around the side of the house and watching them cross the street to the canal. Coop could NOT stop giggling. :) Heck, I couldn't either, for that matter!


Here's the mama with two of her babies...the others are down on the deck


Oh gosh, I wish I would have cropped those dandelions out of there - haha!



Hunter was so upset when we told him about it after school. He keeps going out there everyday and running in excitedly saying, "Mom! I think the ducklings came back because I just went outside and I saw some baby duck footprints!" LOLOL!

When the yard is done, I'll do a before/after post...it's going to be incredible! We can't wait 'til it's done!

That is so cute! We have a mama and daddy mallard that visit our pool frequently and the kids love it! I wish their were babies! Your yard is going to be so great! I can't wait until it's done and we can see the finished product! Miss you and can't wait until schools out so we can get together!

LOL, that's funny. where's the water???? haha. Trish and Darryl have ducks, geese, chickens, and other things next door. We call it the petting zoo. Avery and I are going to go over there tomorrow I think to check stuff out!

How cute can you get? Our good friends had a duck land in their yard years ago and it refused to leave. It started following everyone around all the time then it wanted to bite. LOL Don't know what they ended up doing with him Maybe he flew away. Hunter sounds like Charlie. Always trying to bring back what happened hours ago. maybe they will be back for him to see some day.
