We always see this bird on the telephone wires around our place lately.
I think it's a rough-legged hawk...
but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!!

I love being away for a few days, but there's nothing quite like
Home Sweet Home...especially when Spring has arrived!

We spent a few days at Apex Mountain Resort this week...
sledding, tubing, hot tub-ing, and relaxing.

Our walk started out great....

...but on the way home, we needed to be bailed out by Daddy.
The chain fell off a skelter and the rest of the clan decided a ride
in Daddy's truck would be more fun than walking home with Mom.

All the couch pillows have been 'stolen' and 'put to good use' in the playroom.
Dog kennels, somersaulting mats, and to make towers with.

Robin in the rain,
Such a saucy fellow.
Robin in the rain,
Mind your socks of yellow.
Running in the garden on your nimble feet,
Digging for your dinner with your long strong beak.
Robin in the rain,
You don't mind the weather
Showers always make you gay.
Bet the worms are wishing you would stay at home,
Robin on a rainy day -- don't get your feet wet,
Robin on a rainy day!
- Raffi

Every time I see a robin in the rain, I start singing this song!
To hear it, click here!  (sung by Raffi, not me:)

I'm thinking that next time we go outside and it's raining...
put boots on this guy!  We came home from town and he happily went marching
through the big puddle on the driveway.  Socks, shoes, pants...soaking wet.

This ring-necked pheasant has been around the neighborhood the past few months.
I even see him in our backyard now and then.
Can anyone tell me what that is on his beak?

Auntie Niet Alberta... since you are experiencing winter conditions by you..
I thought I'd send you some Spring!!
Too bad I can't send you a sound clip of the birds singing in the trees
and feel of the warmth of the sun on our backs.  Oh ya, and the smell of fresh cut grass...

Thank you Mattie, for being my Secret Sister this year.
It was so much fun to receive beautiful things and cards from a mysterious someone...
and it's so fun to know it was from YOU!  The suspense was worth it:)

And Ang...I was so lucky to have the fun of sending you little surprises
throughout the year.  Thank you for being my friend.
