Birthday Duck Race

Once again .... I am going to be in real trouble  ... my Daughter beat me to this post .... there I was all set to post on my niece's birthday duck race ... pictures at the ready   ... then I thought why re invent the wheel ... so here is her blog with a few  alterations on relationships of course....   forgive me for the plagiarism Kathryn.




My Niece Lucy 25   seems to have set up an annual duck race for her birthday.
This year was the  3rd time it has been held.

My Daughter  cross stitched this for Lucy's Birthday
 
A BBQ lunch by the lake, followed by a manic family duck race down an inlet to the lake.
Decoration and dress up of the ducks could get you added bonuses or it may even hinder you floating abilities in the race.







What ever happens, a lot of fun is had by all.
This last weekend was the momentous date in time and once more we gathered as a family to have mad antics and joviality.




This years birthday cake was cupcakes with ducks on


Grandson Ben ..........Yummy

Then it was on to the racing....

The ducks get thrown from this bridge


float down this water


mad race to the end


My great Nephew at the end rescuing ducks before they disappear out to the lake!


Ben's got stuck in a bush and never finished so mummy to the rescue


Go mummy ( my daughter)



At the end, Ben got a little too close to the edge of the lake and managed to slip in, so here he is in a towel and my nieces  shirt!
Luckily it was a glorious day and it didn't bother him too much.

Great fun was had by all, roll on next year, more rivalry and mayhem to ensure
