What a weekend!

This weekend was crazy busy! It was my Birthday among other things!  We had a garage sale Saturday and scored big! It was so much fun hanging outside, chatting w/ neighbors and customers-like the good 'ol days.
Then, my husband surprised me that night by taking me out to dinner and having all my best friends and family there!
These are the bestest friends a girl could ask for!
My dear family!
My sneaky husband! :)
Then, the next day . . . we were in downtown Naperville and they were celebrating "Civil War Days" at the settlement.  So, we had to check it out!

O was so excited to actually meet THE President Abraham Lincoln! :)
This was the Civil War reenactment-it was VERY loud!

This is my "antique" version of this picture below
And, of course, i couldn't leave w/out a few shots of our Tweeter friends.  The 3 babies are growing like crazy!  Few things i've learned about the birds-the babies sleep 24/7 except when being fed . . .  .and (this is gross), the mommy eats their poop! Seriously-no joke! Can you even imagine?  Well, i guess it keeps their nest clean.

This was snapped right after she fed them-you can see their beaks.  The mom saw me and took off fast-she's just a blur in this picture.

Happy Mother's Day!

And then there were 2! I looked outisde the window yesterday morning and saw 2 little wiggly birdies!
Then the mommy arrived w/ a little caterpillar in her mouth!
And fed her babies!

It's amazing how nature works!
Then she sat on them! HA!
THEN, today . . . on Mother's Day . . . there were 3!!!
And this is momma watching me from the window.  I'm very careful not to disturb the little babies and her momma.
