Look Who Hatched!
As you can see in the picture in our header, we had a mommy robin lay 2 (and later another) eggs in a nest she built in the corner of our play set. Because they spend so much time playing on the play set when they are outside, we were concerned that the kids would bother the nest and that the mommy robin would abandon the eggs. So we gave the kids a stern talking to about the importance of leaving the nest alone. Apparently, they were obedient because on Saturday, Sam came running in to tell us that we have three little baby robin birds in our nest!
Don't tell mommy robin, but I hope they get a little cuter.
