Weekend Review

Thursday, July 6, 2017
Hope you had a fun and safe 4th of July.  There are numerous quotes about how America celebrates their independence, I like this one--

Erma Bombeck
"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.
You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism."

We had company over the 4th--

The weather was beautiful, we played in the park and fed the ducks at the small lake.  

We have lots of wildlife close--closer than most people realize--

 Here's a closer look--

 Five baby bunnies in here--

In the flower pot five foot from the front door where people walk by all day!  While the boys were here we checked the birdhouse on my campsite.  I had seen a male wren singing to the female so I was pretty sure they had a nest inside--

Seven eggs, one was newly hatched.  I'll check them again in a week.  The other birdhouse also has wrens nesting in it, only three eggs so far.  The mother wren scolded me continually while I was near the nest!

Someone else appreciates the bird outside--

The sprinklers was running right below the window and lots of birds were bathing.  He especially loved the hummingbirds who completely IGNORED him while at the feeder!  Strips for Hoytyville are underneath Moustache.  

You can see he was lots of "help" when I was sewing.  I worried he would get his paw caught in the needle or his tail in the belt.   

No sewing, busy at the Visitor Center this week.

Those baby bunnies are so cute! We have a momma turkey with a whole bunch of babies in our yard this week. One of the babies is snow white. We think her nest is under one of the big pine trees behind the house.

The 4th is always more fun with kids around. Our 4th was quiet. Didn't go anywhere, nobody came here. They all hang out at the river every chance they get. Our daughter's family has a pontoon boat and our son's father-in-law has one so they're always out on the water. You probably saw one, if not both, of those boats over the holiday weekend and just didn't know it. We sat outside for a while on Monday night when someone was shooting off some fairly impressive fireworks and Tues. night our neighbors down the street had some nice ones. Nothing like watching fireworks to some loud Mexican music with thumping bass you can FEEL inside the house with the windows closed. It's a good thing they only celebrate on holidays and birthdays.

Do you have a camp kitty or was he just visiting too?
