Just Ducky!

Yesterday, we took the girls to the Rubber Duck Derby here in town. Folks purchase ducks and they are dumped into the lake to race to the finish. Its all in the name of charity. There were thousands of ducks, but we weren't able to get one because they all sold out! They had bouncy castles, popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs and burgers. Lulu participated in the cake walk, but chickened out of the dance contest. It was such a beautiful day.

In the afternoon, I took the girls to the Sprayground. What a great place! Its all enclosed with lots of benches. There are all sorts of water-spraying features and the water never gets more than a few inches. At $1 per child, its a real deal. We went several times a week last summer, and I suspect this summer will be the same. Lulu hooked up with a couple other little girls and Fern was pretty fearless. In fact, I think we will end up there today at some point.
