I have never seen so many ducks in one place so we HAD to get out and say hi. They swarmed the van when we pulled up and I felt bad that we had not come prepared with a snack for them. There was a nice family that shared the bread they had brought, Abby liked to share with the ducks and geese too. She would pick up the bread we were tossing and try to eat it too. So gross!!
Wow by the time we hit California I think we were all about done. Abby had passed on her tummy germ to Jess and eventually Cassie. Jess unloaded her stomach contents all over the kitchen floor. I am just so glad that Rogers family never got sick. I spent the week in general laziness reading three books by the end of the week. I did help cook and Jeff helped Rog with little projects around the house. New Years Eve Day we got up and headed into the city to the Exploratorium. We had a great time learning about all kinds of science things. We also fed some ducks outside while we ate lunch. We had a rather smooth trip home with a stop to some friends and a night in a hotel. We got a nice new souvenier on our bumper from some dork who cant park a car. After two weeks on the road we were so happy to be home.
