Happy Father’s Day 2017

Today, June 18, 2017 is Father’s Day in the United States.   On this day, the third Sunday of June, we honor our fathers, all men that are fathers and all men that help in any way with children.   Father’s Day had been celebrated for several years, but was not a National Holiday until 1972.   Many were afraid of attempts to commercialize the day.   However, in 1972 President Richard Nixon signed into law the official National Holiday of Father’s Day, to be celebrated every year on the third Sunday of June.

Happy Father’s Day

We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks, wish you all a very Happy Father’s Day.

Happy National Eat Your Vegetables Day

Today, June 17 is National Eat Your Vegetables Day.   We ducks remind you humans that eating vegetables is important for good health.   We also remind you that they taste good, also.

But, we know humans like desserts, so it is good for everybody that today, June 17, is also National Apple Strudel Day.   Apple Strudel is a wonderfully delicious German dessert with apples.

National Apple Strudel Day

We love it.   We will eat some today, after our vegetables.   We, the Colorado Traveling Ducks, hope you all enjoy some vegetables and some Apple Strudel today.   Yum!  As usual we obtain our national holiday information from http://www.NationalDayCalendar.com

Easter Decorations

Easter is a serious Christian holiday, but it is also a fun holiday.  My neighbors have good decorations.

I like the Easter Express.

Then mom and I went to the store to see more items for Easter.  Many people buy a new Easter outfit.  They like to wear new clothes to church on Easter Sunday.  These flowers are Easter Lilies.

Many Easter Lilies

Easter colors are pretty pastels.

Peeps are colored marshmallow chickens.  There are a lot of peeps here.

So many Peeps

Mom says some people boil eggs and dye them pastel colors.  Then the Easter bunny comes to hide the eggs.  Children look for Easter eggs in the morning.   Several cities have Easter egg hunts for the children.

These chocolate bunnies look yummy.

We bought chocolate bunnies!
