Our Feathered Friends!

We've been having so much fun watching the birds the last couple days!
I love it when the American Golden Finches swarm through our area! They are so pretty!
I made this silly bird feeder out of 3 aluminum bowls I found at the Thrift store. I think it turned out really cute! The birds seem to like it. I just counted 12 birds in it a few minutes ago!

We have a flock of these huge pigeons that fly around here. Every once and a while they decide they need to visit the bird feeders. They are way to big for them and just end up making a huge mess all over the porch! But it is pretty funny watching them try to land in the feeders!

Here's Zach watching the birds!

I was having fun playing around with different settings on my camera!

I was taking all these pics through the oldest windows in our house. So no matter how focused my camera was the wavy windows distorted things a little. In this close up you can really see it.

I love this picture! Two birds coming in for a landing at the same time!

Mayfield Lake

It was so beautiful this last weekend that we decided to get out of the house and play a little!
Mayfield Lake has this little beach with a playground about 10 ft away from it, so Pete and I(and Xander) plopped down in between the playground and the beach and let the kids loose! The water is still really cold so no one else was there, so it was a very non stressful trip! Just the way I like it!

Elora's Lost Tooth

Elora lost her first tooth!
She has 3 others that are loose too!
She might be a little toothless this summer :)
