The Duck Dash 2008

Okay we Washingtonians have a little odd tradition called the Duck dash in Thurston county. Its put on by the Rotary club and the funds go to support kids causes. You buy a rubber ducky at the booth for a whopping 5 bucks and hope oh so hope your ducky makes it to the finish line of the Deschutes river. If it does you get a super awesome prize such as a 2008 supped up Mustang, thats what I was going for anyhoo. Needles to say one day of fun = no Mustang :(. Although we did see the Sasquatch from the Sonics and the boys caught four trouts. This was a laugh it was not catch and release what I would have liked oh no you caught the darn thing and put it in the bag and it flips flops around until well lets just say for a four year old that was a little disturbing to see :( he wanted to keep it as a pet and then all of a sudden no more movement. YUCK! Thanks to our dear friend Mr. Buddy who volunteered to clean the fish and smoke it, because mamma is lame at that skill :O! ps. Ruby was in my back pack for the whole day such a trooper.
pss. Yes Melissa that why I missed the ball game that I was suppose to be at, I thought I was going to win a mustang, gosh darn you got me!

He is 7 months old and he is ADORABLE, with a big beautiful smile and big expressive eyes. He looks like my son, God is wonderful. This is my 3 week waiting for the travel call so I am hoping to travel at some point during July. Praying for that.

How fun that you guys got to participate in the Duck Dash - quite hilarious!

On your previous post, I totally get what you're saying about not being able to go anywhere and not be gawked at. I knew this was what we were getting into, but some days it just gets old. I have the issue where people assume my kids are from two different dads b/c Abraham's skin is pretty fair. He looks like he could easily be bi-racial (actually my nieces and nephew have the exact same skin tone and they are bi-racial :) ). I even had a lady that we went to church with give me a look like, "oh my gosh, I can't believe you and Tom divorced and you now have a baby with someone else." I guess it just goes with the territory and I try to ignore it or use it for God's glory. Thanks for sharing Natalie. Hope all is well for you!
