Fresh Strawberries

Last year, we took the girls to pick strawberries.  It was such a fun experience that they (Arin especially) have been anxiously waiting for the time to come again to pick more strawberries.  That time happened yesterday :)

After picking strawberries, we went back to the park to check on the ducklings.  We first found them less than a week ago, when there were 15, now there are only 14.  It's amazing how quickly they are growing independent.  Last week, the mama duck kept them close by her.  This week, they are swimming off, quite a distance from her, as well as going off in different, smaller groups and sometimes on their own.  The mama watches from a distance, but flies in close if she senses danger.  We've been back to check on the ducklings four times since we first found them.  It has been a great learning experience for the girls.
