We took Eilene to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Rubber Duck Race at Brown's Island this weekend. This is an annual fundraising event for Richmonders which is actually quite a spectacle. Of the 20,000+ ducks, one of the five we purchased placed 6th! We were very excited. It poured down rain as the ducks crossed the finish line and we had a mad dash to the car. At 7 months old, Eilene's first time getting caught in the rain was a smashing success!
