Meanwhile, Gunnar and I got a load of laundry on the line, did all the dishes, got all the garbage and recycling out, swept up, and then started on our lawn - he picking up cones and me mowing. But when Wyatt and Tate finished the neighbor's I redirected them onto our lawn, while Gunnar and I mixed up chocolate chip cookies for a reward :D
Took a walk down into a neighborhood park and saw mallards, wood ducks, red-wing blackbirds, crows, and - the highlight - bald eagles coming and going from their nest, high in a cottonwood tree. Gunnar and Tate have dubbed them the Regal Eagle family, and they do look very majestic. But did I bring a camera? Uhhh... no.
If the weather forecast can be believed, we'll have some more sunny days, and - *gasp* - temps possibly up to 68F. That's a whopping 20C, for you metric friends. Laugh if you want, but the last couple weeks have been in the 40s, so this is a Big Deal. Well, now that you've waited patiently through a weather report, for a town most of you will never see...
I let the kids stay up late, eating chocolate chip cookies and watching The Gods Must Be Crazy, 2, and I am pooped. So, pics of their big adventure... tomorrow.
It's good to have goals ;D
