If it looks like a duck...

My husband was leaving for work at 7:30am, and he calls my cell while out in the driveway....

Hubby: Quick come to the front window
Me: What the hell are you taking about, I'm still in bed, naked
Hubby: Just come to the window
Me: God, ok fine whatever.

So I stumble half asleep to the window and look out to see a mama duck with about 10 little babies on my front lawn. I was astonished as I live in a sub-division full of concrete.
I of course ran to get dressed and grab my iPhone for pics. I was like these pics will be great for my blog. (I am constantly taking random pics of anything for you guys)

I went outside and tried to get pretty close, but then the mama started yelling at me so I backed off. They hid in the bushes for a bit, so I myself hid in the garage so they could be on their merry way.
I panicked a little when they left because they decided to walk in the middle of my street. I stood and watched them, and made sure they didn't get hit till they disappeared around the corner.


  1. That's adorable. Nice landscaping, btw.

    That reminds me of a time when we were living in BC, and Luc was yelling my name from outside. I was sure someone was getting murdered. No. He saw a raccoon. Whoooptee Doo! hahaha Ducks are cuter. I didn't care about the raccoon.

  2. Awww, so cute! So glad you managed to get some photos of them - they are adorable! =)

  3. Wow, what a trouper! Two kids is too many for me! And she's got em all listening and walking in a line, to boot. I wish.

  4. Aww!!! I never see cute things like that around my house! =(

  5. Absolutely beautiful!
