Duck, Duck, Goose

Have you ever tried to kick a duck? If not, I'm sure my boys would be more than willing to teach you all the techniques. It's fairly straightforward.

Get a running start, aim, and...

POW! Right in the caboose! Well, if you're fast enough that is.

I really did try to get Joseph to stop, but then Jacob decided it looked like fun, and there was no stopping them. Not to mention all the encouragement they received from other on-lookers. They seemed to find it quite funny and of course, the boys live to entertain.

I don't know anything about ducks, geese, or the like. But there were a lot of big goose/duck looking things that weren't afraid to get there beaks on a meal. Joseph about jumped out of his skin when, after offering a piece of bread to one, got his fingers nipped.

Apparently I wasn't the only one worn out by the weekend. This is Jacob at 11:30am. He took a four hour nap.

Here are the kids after their duck chasing, feeding, kicking fun.

No more four hour naps for this kiddo!!

four hour nap? sweet! Can I send my kids over to join you for the next duck pond adventure? ;)
PS: your little blonde son could be almost twins w/my little blonde son: rosy cheeks, blue eyes, and so much love!

All that info and you left out valuable manformation (manly information)....were there any successful duck punts and what was the hang time?

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Sure Terresa! Send em' over! However, if you kids catch one and bring it home as a pet you can't get mad. =)

Oh my gosh you are so right Kent.
Joseph managed to get a good kick to land on one or two duck bums. But the hang time wasn't more than one or two seconds. Its tricky when they have wings you know. But don't worry, I'm sure once he gets a little more practice in he'll manage to make record hang time.
I'll let you know.
