    First weekend with the new babies....

    WOW this little ones are GROWING...Here are a few pictures from this weekend. They really love the water and it's hilarious to watch them slide around. I am having to really spend time with them, they aren't interested in being lap ducks...at all. But as long as they are all together they are fine, boy when I just hold one or two, they freak out. The one I think is a little girl (Schaeffer) she's the one who is the loudest.

    Ok here are pictures...

    This if my favorite one. This is Schaeffer, she is the bossy extra loud little girl, who loves loves the water.

    This is Axel, sliding across the pan. He is a little character...
