The Rubber Ducky Project: 2016

The Rubber Ducky Project: 2016

At the beginning of 2013, I made a resolution to post a weekly photograph of a rubber duck. Because my daughter loves rubber duckies so much, my goal was to post a picture a week of one of her rubber ducks. I had so much fun taking and posting the pictures last year that I decided to continue the Rubber Ducky Project again this year. Here are the travels of the rubber ducky over the past year!
