Day 3 of bird watching

These little birds are hungry these days and LOVE it when their Mommy shows up with food for them!

Day 2 of Mommy’s bird-watching obsession…

Mommy isn’t getting ANYTHING done around here, because these baby birds are too cute to not watch them all day! We’ve named them Sweetie, Stretchy & Yum-Yum… It’s going to be a sad day when they learn how to fly off and leave our family. For now, they love to eat the bugs, caterpillars & worms their mom finds for them, and one of them loves poking his head out from underneath his mom. I think he likes watching us as much as we like watching him…

We had baby birds!

We have been watching a Momma bird sit on her nest for weeks, and we finally got to see the newly hatched babies last night! Mommy is never going to get anything done again if they don’t grow up soon… they are so much fun to watch!

Morning hike with Mommy

Mommy has been doing great with all her FitBit activity challenges, and decided to take it outside to the woods with us this morning! It was a beautiful, crisp morning, and we all had a blast!

The keepers of the map… (Mommy doesn’t have the best sense of direction, so we figured we should follow the map for her!)

There’s our happy, cheery Emily…

We took the children’s trail this morning and followed the trees with the acorns…

The girls were so big helping each other cross the river…

…and they were so proud of themselves when they made it across!

We found little caterpillars EVERYWHERE, and they kept clinging to Mommy’s clothes!

Abigail is getting really good at taking pictures, so Mommy said she’s going to start giving her some photography lessons!

Everybody should go out and enjoy the beautiful day with a hike!

No lions, No tigers, but BEARS… OH MY!!!

Mommy was doing laundry on Friday and looked out the window to see a big black bear running up the street! Daddy grabbed a few pictures with his phone while we watched from the front door, as he wandered in and out of our neighbors backyards. Ben thought it was awesome, and that we were at the zoo! I guess we’re going to be a whole lot more careful outside these days!

Summer is on the way!

I had my field trip at the park today with my school and it is 85 degrees out! Mommy braved the pollen to take me for a bit, and I had a blast! I can’t wait until every day is like this!
