The Duck Derby

Today was the Advocates for Children's annual Duck Derby fundraiser. People buy ducks, which are numbered and released in the Etowah River in the afternoon, and prizes are given for the ducks that win. (Even the last duck to cross the finish line gets a prize - a gym membership!) We didn't have any ducks in the hunt this year, but Katie Anne, Gigi, and I went to the Duck Derby fair this morning. There were lots of things for Katie Anne to do - a bouncy house, a petting zoo, pony rides, games, etc. The damp weather did keep the crowds down a little bit, but we still had a fun time checking it all out!

FUN! Even if only a few folks were there we had a great time. Katie Anne was very brave to feed the animals and to get so close. :)
