Christopher and I went to Murry Park here in SLC one day for him to play and me to get pictures for a painting assignment due in class (which never came to fruition, by the way!) and we looked in the stream and there, swimmin’ along, was a momma duck and her babies. They got out of the water and we followed them around. The mother was not happy with us a few times and gave us a few open-bill warning stares. Eventually they got back in the water and swam farther down stream. We sure had fun watching and following them. I don’t even remember the last time I saw a family of ducks like that.
