Tweeter the Bird!

Update 2!! They've hatched just yesterday! So exciting-i'll post pictures later-busy day.  HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL!!

Update! No news to share yet on Mrs. Tweeter.  Her 3 little eggs are still nestled in her nest-i'll be sure to post as soon as we see a crack! :)  Anyone know how long it takes from when the eggs are laid to when they hatch?

 It's getting harder and harder to post more regularly.  I feel like I've been driving here and driving there to swim lessons, preschool, gymnastics, carpools, health club . . . the list goes on and on.  Summer is coming and my goal is to not over schedule myself . . . but for some reason, i feel like the calender is filling up fast!

Anyhow, I have to share our "Tweeter" story with you.  The other day I looked out my bedroom window on our 2nd floor and i saw this perfectly built nest! It amazes me what birds can build!  Next, I saw a little Robin sitting so nicely in her nest.
The next day while she was out flying around, i noticed 1 little blue egg! It looked so perfect like a Cadbury Egg! :)
Later that day, there were 2 . . . . then the next day . . .3!  
The kids are getting a kick out of it-it's so neat to be able to see a bird and her nest so close.  Momma bird is so cute.
My oldest daughter decided to call her "Tweeter!"  

I will keep you updated on Momma Tweeter's baby birds.

Hoppy Easter!

It was a bright and sunny day today which was nice for Easter!
We went to my mom & dad's and had a fun Easter Egg hunt-the kids had a blast!
But-oy! All this chocolate and jelly beans-sugar-sugar-sugar! No wonder they crashed in the car on the way home. :)

Oh! And I figured out what i was doing wrong before when i couldn't see my pictures on "preview" mode . . . it was on "edit Html" instead of "compose." Duh! :)

Vegas for kids!

So we decided to venture up to the "Wisconsin Dells" this past week w/ our friends over spring break. Whoa-they have it all-massive water parks, arcades, mini-golf, lazer tag . . . definitely a sensory overload! But, we all had fun the kids had a blast and I took some funky pictures. It's hard to grab those action shots . . . especially when worrying about my camera getting wet! I have no idea how i snapped this picture w/ O all blurry in her action shot and her friend still-i thought it was pretty cool looking!

Lastly-i was wondering if anyone can answer this for me . . . for some reason when I am editing my blog-i don't see the pictures on the screen-but instead a bunch of computer jargon? I used to be able to see the pictures and I could move them around if I needed to-plus it was easier to type around them b/c I knew which picture i was typing about? I probably switched something on the HTML screen or something when I was playing w/ it a few weeks ago . . .but i have no idea how to get it back?
Thoughts? Thanks!
