The duck pond

A few days ago, I took the kids to the pond on Spencer Street to see Brian's ducks. They don't actually belong to Brian, but Brian's family lives across the road, and when Aidan was little he would call them Brian's ducks. The title just sort of stuck. Rhae has fallen in love with ducks, so I thought it might be fun to go down and feed the ducks. They are very friendly and will come right up to you and eat out of your hand. I did get a little nervous at one point because 2 of the hens were pretty aggressive and Rhae was in her carseat, but all turned out well. She and Aidan really enjoyed them. When Aidan got out of the car with the bag of bread, they all started running toward the car and Aidan could barely move! It was pretty funny! This was also rhae's first experience in the grass. I'm still not sure if she really like it or not, but it was pretty stiff. Maybe once she can get in some soft grass she will enjoy it.
