The Big Five-O

Well, it happened.....I turned 50 yesterday...And it was a really great day! There was cake and icecream.....

Work and play.....

And gifts and cards....

But the best gift of all was a surprise.....the ducklings hatched....earlier than I expected them to!
First, the 2 eggs under the broody duck hatched....

 ....and then 9 of the 10 eggs under the original duck hatched.....

Nothing is cuter than baby ducklings!!! I could just sit and watch them all day!

So far I think turning 50 is pretty great!
