More ducks in the backyard

Lately, we've had some backyard visitors. As the weather warms and the flocks are heading north for the summer, it seems our backyard has turned into some kind of rest area for ducks.

Of course, I prefer to think of them as my outdoor guests at the TMI Bed & Breakfast. I've always wanted to run a bed and breakfast.

Fortunately, I don't have to provide beds or breakfast for these visitors, which makes for incredibly easy hosting. The verdict is still out on the clean-up.

The Little Guy and Barley take a look at our most recent visitor through the dining room windows.
The Little Guy seems to understand that there is a very special creature in the backyard near his kiddie pool. Barley understands that there is a winged, quacking toy in the backyard. Both of them want to go outside for a closer look.
Let me make this promise to my feathered guests at the TMI B&B: the Little Guy and Barley will remain inside for a while. At least until your breakfast is over. But by lunchtime, you should really be on your way.

Those mallards are beautiful! Great pictures, especially of Little Guy & Barley looking at them. That is just too cute!
