1.27.12 5:11: Duck!!!!

27 Jan

I thought that maybe if I blogged about something summerish, I could virtually escape the winter cold and feel warm again. Well, every spring the ducks decide to come and have their families under my bushes. For years I have named the pairs, Harold & Maude, Harry & Sally, Bonnie & Clyde, and it seems like they come back year after year, and their children then come too. Well, last year Maude decided instead of teaching the kids to swim in the river down the street, she would teach them in my pool. Only problem is that they were all to small to get out and they could not walk up the ladder or the steps.

Ducklings in the pool; they were to little to get out.

So, after about an hour of my whole family trying to figure out what to do, with floats, and surf boards, and whatevers, I finally made a successful exit ramp for the little family. Can you believe that they did not even say ‘good bye.’ They just waddled after Mom down the street to the river.

So I gave them a ramp to get out.

Just another DogDaz afternoon at our house. ❤

    I love the little ducklings all in a row in your pool.

    They look very cute swimming in your pool. You had a very creative solution and they were all able to walk out safely. I’m sure Momma was very thankful. Great job:-)

    They were only too lucky to have practiced swimming in your pool as you were thoughtful enough to provide them with an exit! 😀
