Duckies

On Mothers Day we headed out to mi padres casa. They have a big pond in their back yard and every year my Mom gets a few ducklings to raise. Eventually the coyotes or neighborhood dogs get to them so inevitably each spring she has to get a new little group... I think this years group needs to be more afraid of my kids than the dogs.Bryce went crazy over the little brutes. And as you can see one almost went to his place of interment.Addison loves the ducks too.. but would rather watch and chase than touch. All she and do is giggle and say 'woah mom' It was so nice to be outside and to play with my kids! Working 12+ hour shifts I feel like I have to earn my visiting rights to get to spend quality time with them. It was the perfect mothers day gift to feel like a mom again!

HA! I laughed out hard when you said...I think they need to be more scared of my kids and then, I scroll down a little bit and Bryce is choking him. AHAHHAAHa. so funny. it caught nate's attention and they all had to come and see. It's awesome.
And man aubs- you look like such a babe in the sassy red shirt and hot red flower. Man, can you be my personal dresser?

I can't believe how big Bryce is getting! He's sure changed since we moved. I just saw your comment on my blog. It's actually an old window from my brother-in-law's house. They live in an old farm house and replaced all of the windows, so I took one of the old ones and repainted it. So, if you know anyone with some old windows, it makes for a fun project!
