It's Monday and it's dreary and rainy.


How was your weekend?

Ours was bittersweet.

Our baby birds have left the nest, and the little family I had become so attached to is gone.

I thought they might stay nearby - but they are long gone.

Here's the last picture I caught of the one of the babies, getting ready to make his exit.

Sorry for the crummy cell phone photo. Blogger fail.

If you look closely, you can see him standing on the edge of the nest. 

In other news, we took the boys to my sister's house to celebrate all three of her daughter's summer birthdays.

There was swimming and playing, family and friends, hot dogs and ice cream.

Plus an entire playroom of new and exciting toys!

Like tutu's!

Okay fine, he hated the tutu - but come on!
How could I resist?

And a piano!

I'm sure you can imagine how delightful
and melodious this situation was. 

Happy Monday!


  1. When we visit my parents in Atkinson, all the boys want to do is play the piano! :) It's adorable to see little kids playing one.

    I don't know how close to Londonderry you are, but the Discovery Stop (I think that's what it's called) is a fun place on a rainy day.

  2. loved the pic in the tutu..going to have to show the big chief what his namesake is up too..i am sure he will get a big laugh over that one..maybe the big boy will be musical like his,nana

  3. I just posted about rainy day crafts (cheap/free) - we've had SOOOOOO much rain here- kids climbing walls. . .
