Ducks, Challenges, and More!

Hey all!
Yeah, so it's been a while since I did a 'real' post. You know, not just a part of a story or photo contest. So, here you go!

On Thursday, we went to some friends' house to have a picnic, and to see their ducks and chickens! Now before I continue, I must tell you a little story. Ready?
So when I was 4 or 5, I had a dollar. Yes, a whole dollar! And my mom told me I could buy anything I wanted with that dollar.
Well one day, we were at a Tractor Supply, when I saw a sign that said: "Ducklings $1". Oh, you can imagine the joy! I could have a duck! Or so I thought...
Of course you all know how it ended, my mother said no, and I went home duckless. The disappointing life of a 5 year-old...

Now when we first met our friends, I told them that story. Of course they laughed and thought it was funny, and said that they would "give" me one of their ducks. So yes, I have a duck.

His name is Dandelion, or Dandy for short. And every time I see our friends, I ask them how little Dandy is doing! And you know what I found out? My duck is mean. Yes, mean! Well, not all the way mean, just part mean. He chases the chickens.

Anyway, enough about that! So, now that you know I have a duck, you can see the pictures. I got to meet Dandy for the first time Thursday!

One of their beautiful ducks (not Dandy)
A chicken
Mary got to hold a chicken, that I think was named Blondie
Mr. Dandy himself
Dandy. Isn't he gorgeous?
I wanted to get a picture of Dandy and me together, but he was too fast...
Mary found two ducks eggs!
A little duckling!
The boys spent their afternoon playing golf and riding a go-cart
When we went inside, we found their cat in odd place! Our friend said she was hatching seeds :)
Isn't she pretty? Her name is Misty!
We ate hamburgers and hot dogs, and sat out on the porch and talked! It was a very fun afternoon :)

Hello Kathryn,
Dandy is so CUTE!!!!! We have chickens and there eggs get REALLY BIG! If we ever had a duck or goose we would name it Hannibal because that is the name of Israel Boones goose on Daniel Boone.

Kathryn said...

Haha, ikr? I love him (he might be a girl though!!)!
Neat!! And haha, my bro has 5 of the Daniel Boone seasons and we most certainly would name our duck or goose Hannibal too :D

Country God Girl said...

We have 4 Daniel Boone seasons and still want the other 2.
By the way can I grab your button and put it on my blog?
