We surprised the kids with 2 birds. Keith has been asking for over a year now! We finally caved :). Fred jokingly called them "oink" and "doink", and I informed him I thought those names fit. Especially since "Doink" (the blue one) bit him when he was trying to get him out of the box! The kids love them and love going to check on them! Roxie does not know what to think of them yet! She is a little concerned with birds in the house, especially since she is a bird dog!
Ironically we found this little guy in our yard last night. We believe he is a Morning Dove. After reading up on them for their care, we found out that Mama Morning Dove's will just kick the young out of their nest when they are ready for a new set of babies. They do not have a lot of loving care. :(
This was a freakishly large moth out by Cody's kennel. I almost stepped barefoot on it! YUCK! It stayed right there for 2 days!
The beautiful sunset last night! I love watching God's handiwork like this!
Saturday night we went over to a friends house. We had so much fun!!!! The kids were very wore out by the time we got home(and so were we!)
We got a visit from my sister-in-law, niece and her little guy! We all had so much fun! I miss those chubby baby cheeks :) My kids are as obsessed with babies as I am! And Uncle Fred does pretty good with them too :)
And finally just a few of my flowers out front that finally opened! LOVE!
