Makes My Monday: Just Ducky

...and goose-y, and turtle-y and koi-y, and heron-y and beaver-y. Such are all the creatures in the water feature alongside our local Panera Bread. What an inexpensive way to enjoy an afternoon and re-purpose the slightly stale saltines, tortilla chips and baguette bits.

What is brightening your week's beginning? Pick a picture, tell a tale, and play along with the web-wide Monday making.

Sounds just perfect. We have a nature park near us..but the water is horrible. There used to be ducks and frogs..now it's just an icky mess.
Great picture.
Have a super Monday,

We went to Lake Las Vegas a couple years ago and Lauren had more fun feeding the catfish than anything else we did! Funny - back to basics is always good!

Sounds like so much fun & yummy - Panera Bread is the BEST!

That's a fancy Panera . . . ours is nestled (as in smushed) in the middle of a shopping complex.

Have a great Monday!

inexpensive is like music to my ears. Looks like they had lots of fun. We have a lake behind us flooded with ducks so we always give them our old and stale stuff.

Happy Monday Cheryl!!

how great to get to eat and have fun too!

Aimee said...

We have a Panera like that, too! The kids love it. In fact, Fiver calls it "Duck-nera" in order to differentiate it from the other Paneras that are local to us. :)

mmm....Panera! One of my favorite lunch spots!

Ironic...I was just reminiscing the other day of my favorite 'duck feeding' spot on MSU's campus when I was a lil girl and told my mom I wanted to take my 3 there this summer. Can't wait!

What a fun way to have lunch! Our local zoo has a Ben & Jerry's in the middle of a duck pond and the kids tend to even bypass the ice cream for the duckies :)

Hope you had a fun weekend!

Looks like a fun free place to visit, Brenna would just love a place like that!

Thank you for the encouraging words and the link to twinstuff/potty training. It really did help!

Great photo! We, too, have a park where we can feed the fish, ducks, geese, etc.... it's a great way to spend a day & get rid of food.... glad you had such a great time!

I used to love feeding the birds as a kid...what a great memory!

Looks like a fun place. Happy Monday.
