This fall the weather was so nice, so we decided to make a trip to Boerne to feed the ducks and visit with Uncle Mike.
This was the twins' first encounter with ducks, other than the numerous books we have with pictures of them. Rhys was a little scared at first, but warmed up quickly. Rhett was not scared at all, and would walk right up to the ducks to hand them some bread. Rhett didn't understand the concept of tearing off a small piece of bread and tossing it towards the ducks. He would just throw down the whole piece of bread right by his feet and then watch the ducks come to him. After a lot of practice, he started to get the hang of it.
Rhys didn't want to throw her bread down. Instead, she wanted to just hold it and walk around with it. She didn't understand why those ducks were all following her and watching her every move! She just didn't want to let go of the bread! I actually found a small piece of bread in her fist when we got home that afternoon! She had held onto it the whole way home!
