2 ducks?

Two little ducks went out to play,
over the hill and far away.
Mother duck called “quack quack quack”,
and THREE little ducks came running back!

Today I went out to “chore”, and found a surprise waiting for me. I guess we have 3 ducks now…

2 ducks become 3

As Pastor Fred reminded us this morning, Easter isn’t over yet. His words were an inspiration to do a better job keeping up on the blog, and also means that we’re not too late!

Springtime in the Janes house means lots of things. Easter eggs, flowers, green everywhere, warm weather, and of course – ducks.

This was our first Easter morning where the egg hunt was fully understood. And because big sister seemed to like picking up all of these eggs so much, little sister decided she loved eggs too.

And with all this green and warm weather, Easter just wouldn’t be the same without a new pair of ducks. So yet again, we’re “those crazy people with ducks”…

The girls (and the neighbors) love them, and Madelyn decided she didn’t want to be left out of all of the duck pictures. 🙂

End of the summer

Sadly, summer has come to a close and it is now officially fall. So we thought it was finally time to post all of the random pictures from throughout the summer. Here are a few of our favorites from early in the summer:

Then, our planned camping trip was cancelled because of the unseasonably hot weather. We decided it had been way too long since we’d been to a zoo, so that inspired a trip to the Omaha zoo.

YIKES! Big sharks!

As summer wrapped up, it was time to go to the fair! First, it was the Iowa State Fair and a chance to see how Jill placed in the photo contest. Turns out she got second place!

And then we were headed to the Guthrie County Fair! Of course, a fair always means bad-for-you food…
