After being cooped up in the house for their first 10 days, Mother’s Day was a good day for their first adventure in the outside world. They stayed in a little clump, padding after me, lickety split and often falling over themselves and tumbling part way. No quacks, just peep,peep,peep. They are experimenting with rolly polly bugs but mostly they appear to have an affinity for eating dirt. (You know how unattractively the contents of your baby’s diaper changed as soon as you started her on food? Be glad she wasn’t eating bugs and dirt.) And, like me, they love the sunny Spring garden.
