Crazy Ducks!

So the "Feeding the Ducks" last Saturday must have made quite the impression on Carson. He asks to go EVERYDAY now! I told him I would take him to the park and then we would go up to the lake at Daybreak and try to find some ducks to feed IF he could help me get the toys put away, get dressed, etc. WOW...he threw the toys in the bucket so fast and ran to his room to find some clothes...I guess he was excited. So we drove up to the park at the corner and played for a while. I was secretly hoping he would forget about the ducks, but not a chance.

After the park we drove up to the lake and spotted some hungry looking ducks. The second we got out of the car the herd/gaggle/swarm of ducks came running toward us. I had barely gotten Grace in the stroller and the popcorn out of the car when they started barking at us! It was actually quite intimidating! Carson ran off to pick up rocks (because "ducks like rocks") and left Grace and I holding the bag of popcorn. I we tossed it out by the handful as Grace squealed with delight. She loves animals! When the last bit of popcorn was tossed, the ducks were still crazy excited. Grace had her hand stretched out trying to "pet" one and it nipped at her! So the fun was over, we grabbed Carson and ran to the car...ducks chasing and all.

Eek! I've never had DUCKS chase me before. We will stick to old pancakes instead of popcorn.
