Feeding the Ducks


Emily & I took her kids on an outing yesterday.
(She had the day off for family business in the morning).
We went to the duck pond on campus to feed the ducks.
As soon as we stepped out of the car
and produced a box of stale crackers,
the ducks practically mobbed us.
Sophie was a bit nervous at first,
and tended to throw the crackers and then hide behind her mom:


She felt a little more at ease throwing crackers
to the ducks still in the pond,
but it was hard to get pictures of her face.
(She moves too fast).




We had a great time.
There were white ducks,
mallards,
ducklings,
even turtles.
All were very tame,
and Emily even got some of the ducks to eat straight out of her hand.

Oh the fun of ducks! We keep meaning to take old bread to the duck pond on campus here. It is quite funny to see how they mob.
