A Rainy Weekend in Island Park

After fighting with our 5th wheel all week long, we finally said "Uncle" as in uncles can we stay at the cabin! While Scott's friends from work camped out at the campground we were able to stay at the cabin, nice and dry! We watched movies, played cards and bugged the crap out each other! We did spend a lot of time hanging out with the friends, especially at night for camp fires and glow sticks!

The girls on the weekend, Lindee, Ashley our adopted daughter, and Diva. I think Lindee always has this face on when little Diva is around. If you know my cute husband at all, you know he has the best or worst (depending on how you look at it) bedhead. This picture is part bedhead and part windy boat head, either way it rocks!!!

Sawyer and his friend Nathan, getting ready to go fishing, they never caught and thing, but sure has the fishermen talk down good! They all got away and they were BIG!

The Weekend

So last weekend was SO busy and SO fun, in true Duff house fashion! The weekend started bright and early Thursday's with Devree's class end of the school year party! 33 kids, 6 moms, and 2 teachers later I think all the kids had a blast

Next came the last day of school on Friday and Sawyer's big "Blast into Summer" birthday party! He and friends were so excited and for SOOOOO LONG for it! I am never really sure why I commit myself to so many activities at birthday parties with young ones, silly ME!

Everything is just DUCKY!

So about 3 weeks ago I finally decided to become a respectable member of the neighborhood, and start clearing out the dead weeds and old flowers from my front flower garden. ( I know its very late in the year to do such! I could pretend and use the excuse of- Hey I work!!! But no, I just didn't want to do it!) I took my bottle of weed killer with me and just as I was leaning in, about halfway done with the whole project, OUT FLEW a Duck from the weeds, and scared the shit out of me, I about fell over backwards!
What- last time I looked we lived in the middle of the city! I thought so too! I looked down and tried to figure out why she would be there, when I saw the most beautiful nest of eggs. Seven eggs nestled in the weeds. Justin thinks she picked our house for the abundance of weeds, Scott and I call it duck habitat not weeds!
Since that time the whole things taken on a life of its own, quite literally! Scott talked with all the neighbors asking them to watch their cats and dogs when outside, he reminds Devree to feed her bread every so often, and he installed a kiddie pool in the front flower garden for her swimming pleasure!
I, in the mean time, have become obsessed with checking on her. I probably go out and looking in on her five times a day. I have named her Duffy, with the approval of the whole family. And now we just wait like expectant parents!

What Where Why?????

So with family and friends spread out all across the country, I thought a Family Blog would be a fun way to keep everyone updated! I hope you enjoy hearing about our lives as much as we enjoy living it!
