We reunite with our soft ducklings from last week, to find mama and papa duck taking the baby ducks out for a romp in the pond
At first the ducklings were too cautious to leave the protection that mama duck provided.
However, as the evening wore on, the little ducklings became bold.
Challenges were made, races were had.
Papa duck felt that it was necessary to act as the official life guard and referee.
After the races, papa duck demonstrated advanced fishing techniques to the young ones.
However, they preferred to simply peer into the depths of the pond from a safe distance.
Once all the ducklings had explored the pond, mama duck guided them home for a well deserved rest.
Mama ended the evening with a good night kiss for each of her many ducklings.
