The kids were home from school today so we decided to go on a hike with our neighbors. It was a short hike in honor of the kids, but it was full of action. Within the first five minutes we had a tag-a-long duck who thought he was a dog. We saw him swimming in the pond and within two minutes he had joined us on our hike. We were worried at first because his beak is at the same height as the children's eyes, but he had no interest in attacking- he was ready to walk with his tail wagging. After my initial fear, it was one of the cutest things I've ever seen and the kids sure got a kick out of it.
