Saturday Snapshot- Ducks!

 Thursday was an Old Fashioned 4th of July in our town and we celebrated it by buying Duck Race tickets for the rubber duck race in the creek.  Beforehand all the ducks are set out in numerical order.  This year each of the kids had their own duck.
 We had number 540.  I guess we should have recognized the signs when it was the only backwards duck laid out on the table!  Our little sheriff was already marching or swimming to his own tune!
We also had number 550 and 551.

And last there was 540, another brown hatted fellow, but not a sheriff this time.

 We sat and stood by the creek waiting for our ducks to come by, but they never did.  After all the winners had made it to the end we walked back and found out little guys stuck with lots of their friends in the rocks.
 Needless to say, none of our ducks were winners this year, but it was still fun to participate.
I think my kids liked the part where they got to go in the creek to clean up the left behind ducks the most!
