Rubber Duck Races

Today Morgan and I went with our friends to the park to participate in a rubber duck race. They have you pick out a little rubber duck and then you register it with a number and your name. They split the ducks into different heats. Then the winners of each heat  race for the top three spots and get a prize.

After we registered I ran into a friend from church. She invited us to join her and her two kids on their blanket. Which was great because the ground was a little damp, and I totally didn't think about bringing one.

This is Morgan's racer. We named him Friday after the duck my sister had when she was young. Plus, it IS Friday today :).

While we were waiting for the races to start they had a parachute and hula hoops for kids to play with. When I look at this next picture of Morgan she looks so much older to me. It is kind of freaky.
Waiting for the races to start.
She was excited to see her duck race, but he didn't win. She is still learning to be a gracious loser. She was a little bummed about not winning a prize, but that is just part of life. I would rather her have several of these experiences while she is young so she doesn't expect to be a winner every time.
