Tuesday morning in Keyser, West Virginia

Mary and I have a little tradition of going to breakfast at Denny's about twice a month. We went this morning. Instead of getting out the door at 7:15, we have to leave at 6am. But it is well worth it. Our waiters are usually college students from Potomac State. It's nice to begin forming new traditions in our new home.

This morning was a tad different because from our table at the window we saw a pair of ducks land. We watched them as they cautiously approached the water and then proceeded to wade. They stayed until we scared them away taking pictures.

Our neighbors must be unused to our new tradition because when Mary was playing with Nadia this afternoon - her grandpa Bill - told Mary that he was afraid that we didn't know that there was school and he thought we had left for PA. Not a bad idea but we made it to work and school on time. ; )

Mary took the first 3 pictures.  She did a wonderful job.  Mr. and Mrs. Mallard look wonderful in their spring plumage.  We discussed the book - "Make Way for Ducklings" and plan to read it later in the week.

I love the picture of Mary taking pictures of the ducks. Mary is a very good photographer for a child her age.
