This morning, Elliott was looking out the window, and exclaimed "Ducklings!" None of the silly grown ups reacted. After several more exclamations about ducks/ducklings, we all said "No, you're probably looking at seagulls." Elliott has a sharp eye, and he knows his birds -- there, waddling into the mudflats was Mrs. Duck leading her seven ducklings in search of breakfast!
Extra: The grandkids crammed on a bench!
