And...more ducks!

I guess this is one more part of Boston. I'm not sure if everyone grew up with this story but Vegas and I did because we grew up here.

It's a book called, Make Way For Ducklings. It is about duck parents (Mr. and Mrs. Mallard) trying to find the perfect spot to raise their ducklings and they settle in the Boston Public Garden.

The sculptures are kid friendly...as you walk by you'll often see kids climbing and playing on them.

And, if you happened to walk by yesterday you saw my children climbing and playing on them.

The girls had a great time seeing the ducks. Peanut pointed to each duck and said, "duck". Gator loved sitting on the Momma duck...and well, now when we go back home we'll be reading the book and talking about the time we went and sat on each and every duck!
