Happy Family Times #7

Kelly at Happy Whimsical Hearts and I run a link party to share your family times every Tuesday. Please link up below and visit Happy Whimsical Hearts to read about her quality family time!

This weekend we spent most of our family time outside. On Saturday we got the pleasure of feeding the ducks. They actually came up to the driveway next to our garage and we fed them there.
Hazel was of course very excited but we kept her pretty calm and quiet so we could watch them from only a few feet away.
My taking pictures is actually what scared them away. Off they flew to the brook, but we went to do other things away from the back yard and they came right back. I got another picture from around the corner of the garage.

Then after they left this time they hung out in the brook near our bird feeders. We do think they have a nest back in the corner where the brook turns.
After feeding the ducks, Daddy and Hazel rebuilt the fairy house since something had knocked it down a bit.
And I found them relaxing on the patio as well.
Sunday after church, we did some gardening. Hazel and I planted the impatiens while Daddy dug a new garden for me to plant some hollyhocks and gladiolas. We are hoping to grow a natural fence along the driveway a bit for more privacy with them.

Then we played on the swingsets. Hazel was having a blast. We have been working on pumping on the swings, but it has not stuck yet. So we took turns pushing her. Then of course she wanted to play zoo train with me and made me ask her if we were there yet a hundred times.

Then we ended our outside time by watering everything we planted and cleaning up. Hazel of course wanted to help with the watering.

Now it is your turn to share how your family has spent some quality time lately.
