Photo of the Week - Ducks on kayak

(contributed photo)

The Waggoner family received some unexpected attention from a boatload of ducks while they were kayaking near their home on Lake Henry in Alexandria. Paul, his wife, Maria, and their two children, Alayna and Isaac, saw the ducks swimming toward them, gave them a little snack and the ducks followed them all the way back to their house.

"It was very neat," said Paul, whose children are the fifth generation of Waggoners to live on the lake. "In my life, I've never had this happen."
