Soaking up the Sun

Yesterday was such a beautiful day that my son and I went for a visit to one of the local parks. After he played on the slides and climbers for a while, we took a walk along the path by the lake~Sprite in tow:-)

He is not really mad here, the sun was reflecting off of the water and made him squint.

When we got back home, we let the ducks out to enjoy some swim time. They have graduated from the bathtub to my son's old swimming pool.

They are loosing their duckling fuzz and growing in their feathers, they look sort of nappy during this transition time.... but still cute as a button when they are waddling behind me through the yard. They are also starting to quack rather than peep:-)

Today promises to be another glorious sunny day and I am hoping that my garden is dry enough for me to get in and work a little. We have had an incredible amount of rainfall in the last few weeks. It has done wonders for our water-table, but has made a muddy mess of everything.... not that I am complaining, mind you.

I hope it is sunny where you are~Rhonda

You take the sweetest pics. Love seeing the photos of your handsome little guy who, by the way, is growing fast just like the ducklings. I know what you mean about too much's just annoying to get it all at once and for days. Hope that the sun appears soon. Yes, it was sunny and warm here today. Perfect spring weather and much appreciated.

That swimming pool looks so refreshing. The ducks are very cute as they begin to change aren't they. Lovely pics of a lovely young man.

Isn't it amazing how quickly they grow...both your darling son and the ducklings?! That sweetie son of yours has good genes. Soon your ducks will be too big for a you have a pen outside for them?
