More to love here at home...

So tonight, we take off to our softball game. It goes very well...all is good...lotsa fun!
A lady walks over holding the cutest little kitten and I just fall in love.
My husband, who is completely a dog person and is allergic to cats...falls in love.
My son is there and he, too, falls in love.

We then find out that they're giving the baby kittens away!!! We go look...we all then COMPLETELY fall in love with a different kitten that a little boy is holding.
I say that I want that one.
The boy says the kitten is his.
I tell him to ask his mom, who I know. He does. She says "no."
We all are so in love that we get the kitten!!!!!

Then comes the name.

I want to name this cutie pie, "Cornelia" after my favorite boat on "Deadliest Catch".
My husband wants to name him "Sig" after his favorite guy on the same show.
I get outvoted since the kitten is a boy.
My son then trumps us all with the fact that we've all named pets, he has not. So we say "Alright. What do you want to name him?"

"awwww.....perfect! Like moon, but in Spanish!"
" his middle name will be Tic...LunaTic"

Then he went to "Kenya." WHAT?
"Yeah, mom....Kenya feed him for me?"

Finally, after much laughter, begging, vetoing, etc....

Our baby's name is "Nacho". Yep. Why? No idea. Lil guy wanted him to be Nacho. So he is. Nacho...the newest addition to our home!!!

Every night this summer...

Every evening this summer, before the sun goes down, we hear the call of our new friends. They're ready for dinner. They love bread. They yell as loud as they can for us to come out and feed them and it's become one of the best parts of the day.

The whole family grabs bread and runs out to the ducks that are now tame. We can touch them, pet them, feed them by hand, anything. If we lay bread on our laps, they'll jump in and grab the bread.

It's one of the hi-lights of the summer since they've moved in on the pond out back. They're sweet and fun and have caused much laughter for my family this summer...

Love the new little friends!!!!
