Mother's Day Visitors

We were up early on Sunday, getting ready to head out for our annual Mother's Day picnic. I looked over to see if the coffee was done and noticed that there was something floating in the pool. Now, when he was smaller, the little guy next door liked to see if he could throw things over the fence and hit the pool, so I figured maybe he hadn't outgrown that like we thought.

Much to my surprise, this is what was floating in the pool. Ma and Pa had made a stop in our backyard. They floated around like they owned the place. (and we were hoping that they would decide no, it was not for them) My great white hunter had to get a step ladder out of the garage so he could get a picture over the fence and they took no notice at all. After a nice swim, they took to the air, off to visit someone else and try out their pool.

We have not ventured into the water yet, way too cool for our taste just yet but it apparently was just right for ducks on Mother's Day 2009. Not bad for living right smack dab in the middle of large metropolitan area.

Picnic was wonderful, pictures later.

Two surpries with this post...did not know you had a pool...and then getting to see the ducks swimming so happy in the body of water.

I bet you were surprised to see them.

Yes, we want to see the pictures of the picnic. Tis so cold here and still rainy...like fall time. It may have hit 60 today - if it did not for long. I beleive my toes are growing in a web fashion to handle all this rain.

Oh, I love those pretty ducks! They are nice and don't leave a mess like Canadian geese.
