Do NOT feed the ducks!

On Saturday we were at the park and thought it would be fun to feed the ducks. It was fun if you like horror movies!! duhn, duhn, duuuuh. There is a reason they have a sign posted.

It started out as some good, clean fun.

Then every duck & goose within a 50 mile radius realized we had bread. These birds are not shy! They were not opposed to getting up close & personal.

It's an eerie feeling to have birds following you and eying you hungrily. I felt like we were in "The Birds". Creeeepy!!

After we were all out of bread, the kids were helping me "Shoo!" the birds back into the river. (IF you can call it that. I suppose it's a river for Arizona.) Katelynn was the funniest. She was saying. "Go you freaky birds! Get back in your pool!" Ha ha ha!

We didn't know that simply feeding the ducks would be such a life-threatening experience. I think the kids really got a kick out of it, though.

I think I may have nightmares about the way that one goose was looking at me. *shudder*

Note: No people or ducks were harmed in the making of this blog post.


  1. Ducks freak me out, so you guys are brave to be that close to them. I would have been running and screaming bloody murder!

    Oh and poor Katelynn in puffy again. I miss her. Tell her I love her.

  2. I am with you! We took the girls to feed the ducks a summer or two ago and it was surreal... not in a good way. I'm glad there were no casualties:)


Comments make me smile. :D
