Duck!

After a month of nesting, our little Fern finally welcomed thirteen little ducklings to the world on Tuesday, April 21st. The kids just loved them and watched them as they marched around our yard. Evie was "quack-ing" all day long.


Fern jumped down right here and you can tell that the ducklings are trying to figure out how to get down to her. So cute!


And they went for it! Look closely and you can see one in mid-air. :)



They were only there for one day before they headed out to the pond nearby, but I'm sure we'll see them next year.

How cool to have ducks in your own back yard - most of us have to head to a park! (I'm also glad as humans we don't have 13 kids at a time!!)

That is so funny, how exciting for Dallin and Evie too. We have geese that walk around our neighborhood and swim in the pools but we dont really see them up close.

hopefully this didn't lead to a question from dallin about the birds and the bees.
