Friday again?

I have to admit I'm relieved it's Friday.  I was tired all week, since I haven't been getting enough sleep. I can't wait to sleep in a little bit longer on Saturday! Anyways, I promised pictures of our little ducks and here they are! We just love these little guys. Kevin is the bigger white duck eating out of my hand in the last picture, and Ernie is the black duck carefully watching Kevin. Bill finished securing their cage last Saturday, and they have been so excited in the morning to explore the bigger part of their cage. They particularly like drinking a bunch of water and digging holes. I never knew ducks liked to dig holes, but for these guys, it's one of their favorite past times.

We have a slight problem with their cage though. Ernie, the black one, likes to fly the coop at dusk. It's happened these past two nights. Bill and I go out their around 8:00p.m. to lock them up so they're completely secure from any hungry coyotes, and we find Ernie walking around outside of his cage. We both can't believe he can fly out of this cage. We didn't think there was enough room for take off. Apparently, there is more than enough. ha

After work today, we are going out to eat and buying some netting to go over the top of the cage. I can't stand the thought of Ernie becoming a snack for any wild animal. I can't wait to relax after work and hang out with Bill. I might make banana bread if I'm feeling ambitious. We'll see. On Saturday, my mom, me, and my sister are going up to Wisconsin to visit a friend who we haven't seen in a while! I can't wait to all hang out together. We're planning on making calzones and hanging out by the pool. Oh, I forgot to mention that I'm saying goodbye to my brother for 10 days. He will be on an eighteen hour flight today to Thailand with a 3 hour layover in Hong Kong! My dad invited him to go on vacation with him, and I'm personally a little jealous. hah I can't wait to see all of his pictures when he gets home.

What are you up to this weekend?
