Last week we went to a local park and fed the ducks and played at the playground. We got there just before 9:00am because I wanted to attempt to beat the heat. Even at 9, I had no such luck! It was hot and sticky! But, that's Houston, so oh well. We bought an extra loaf of bread at the grocery store just for this occasion and the more I thought about it, I realized I had never taken Mackenzie (or Meredith) to feed the ducks, so they were pretty excited. Mackenzie wasn't as skiddish (sp?) as I thought she would be, but the ducks were pretty hungry, so I completely understood when she would back away from them. This first group was a little too close for my comfort and wouldn't go in the water for the food, so we moved away from them.
