Make Way for Charlie!

Today Meredith and I stopped by the famous 'Make Way for Ducklings' statues on our walk to the office. I was wondering why there were duck statues in the middle of the park and she explained that they were inspired by a very poplar children's book based in Boston called Make Way for Ducklings  by Robert McCloskey.

I didn't see any real ducks while I was there. Meredith said they probably already flew south for the winter. I wonder if Santa knows where their winter homes are?! Oh wait... it's Santa. Of course he does. 

A fun fact about the book is the author is from the same town Meredith grew up in all the way in Hamilton, Ohio! I haven't been to Ohio yet but it seems like some pretty cool people come from there. <|:)
