  1. Dear Valerie,

    Those poor fish, having to watch the ducks eat! Hopefully some of the food fell into the water. ๐Ÿ˜€


    • I think the fish managed to get a few bites… and the ducks were SUPER friendly. I wonder why? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Great idea! I never thought about going to the fish hatchery just to *feed* the fish…I’ll have to see if ours is still open at this time of year–thanks for the tip ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It’s great fun! Clara couldn’t feed the fish or ducks without laughing hysterically… she even got the hiccups. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. we love the fish hatchery!!! That duck always tries to steal our food ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. She is adorable! When we visit my brother, we feed the ducks near him, and there is one who will jump for food like a dog!

  5. I have to agree with you, feeding ducks is a great, fun and frugal kid activity. We have a duck pond near our house and the kids can’t get enough of it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I know, right?? Clara has been asking to go back ever since. I had no idea something so simple would make her SO happy! I love stuff like that!

  6. Gorgeous photos. Love the *magic dust*. We just have to find a place where the “Do not feed the ducks” signs are absent!

    • So sweet, Nicole, thank you!! We have lots of signs like that too around here, but don’t give up — I’m sure you’ll find someplace and it’s totally worth the search. Have fun!!
