Mama Wren wove her nest deep in our rafters,
we could only hear the chirps when her fledglings were hungry!
We watched as she worked day after day with the same perseverance as
our mama Robin did a few weeks ago.
Then the time came that they were strong enough to fly
and we were privileged to witness that beautyThis little flyer landed on my lap!
and then into Megs handsLittle sister's handsoh yes, as well as my head!! We then watched Mama Wren coach her to the edge of our backyard
then to the treeeees!! See her in the center?
It was precious, really, can I watch this scene everyday pleeeease!

There is an art to eating them..
This morning we gathered
some of the juciest yummiest blackberries together!
Maya said to me, "Come on Mama, let's walk and talk"
Our summertime is made of many things fun
and picking blackberries together (while taste testing a few :o)
is high on the list!

Blue Swimming

I remembered this as I was talking about these photos with Ana this morning on flickr... When I was younger, my favorite thing to do was to be under water, I loved the calm, the silence, the feeling of weightlessness, I would even make air pockets under the ladders just so when I got to them, I wouldn't have to come up for air! It's no wonder I have water babes :o)

Today..they braved the Rapids

kept a lookout for rock throwing babies and for mayflies with scarlet laced wings

remembered how to swim
made lots of noise together..lotsand explored the banks

everyone was thirsty in this heat
we're thankful for Sonic's happy hour!
