We took a walk to a park that is just a couple of blocks from us. IT IS HUGE! Complete with a pond that you can fish for bass and cats in (we are pretty excited about this) We played in sand, went down slides, swung on swings, ran and ran and ran, threw rocks in the pond and we even did a little service for the day and picked up some of the garbage that had accumulated around the pond this winter.
On our walk there we were listening to the birds and we could hear two birds singing to each other. It was the coolest song I think I have ever heard from a bird so we started looking in the trees to see if we could find the singers. Guess what it was? Cardinals! Real life ones! It was pretty stinking cool.
On our way home AnDee started noticing all the nests in the trees. Im not usually one to disrupt things but we found this little tiny nest on a branch just above our heads and I couldn't resist letting my kids see one up close. Andrew lifted AnDee up to peak inside first and when we were sure there weren't any eggs in it she gently lifted it up and out. Pep was totally fascinated and started to put all sorts of "eggs" in it (i.e. rocks, pine cones and other somewhat round objects)
We had one other happy moment yesterday.... On our way back to our house Andrew decided to stop and get our mail since it had been a few days and our mailbox was filling up and guess what finally came?
