Just ducky.

As part of our grand finale
in the state of North Carolina,
we spent a morning feeding ducks at the local lake.

Dorothy loves ducks.
In fact, "duck" was one of the first words
she learned to say with clarity.

Auntie Kristi and Miss Keira made for excellent company.

of course,
there was one sweet Lucy Goosey along for the ride.

Dorothy had a hard time understanding
that the stale crackers were not for her snack.

It was a lovely way to wrap up our month
in the south.

1. sleeping in my own bed
2. getting rid of the binkis without even a single tear
3. fresh potatoes, onions, cucumbers, and zucchini from the garden
to greet us

In case you were wondering...

...just exactly where we have been the last few weeks,
we thought we'd share a *few* pictures:)

We have:

visited with cousins,

spent lots of family time together,

found ways to beat the heat,

experienced the sprinkler for the first time,

been spoiled rotten by auntie Eva,

blessed our sweet baby Lucy,

shared lots of smiles over Pelican's snoballs,

and other messy treats,

introduced Lucy to Uncle Will,
managed to get in a date or two,

explored nature,
taken walks,

(Lucy's version of taking a walk in nature)

escaped to the woods,
spent time with great grandpa Brooks

heard lots of giggles from lots of little girls,

fallen in love with sunglasses,
smiled until our faces hurt,

read lots of stories,

loved having a free pool,

acted silly,

and just been loving life!

1. time with family
2. inspired teachers at church
3. reverent music
