Squirel Studies

We have three new friends in the backyard. They are the lovliest of rodents....We've been having a lot of fun watching them dig tunnels and figure out new ways to get to the birdfeeder to get seeds. Ben took to watching them through the window for about an hour the other day. We also decided to share some trail mix with them too, add a little variety to their diet. ;) We also tried to go outside to visit with them but funny thing, they ran away when we came outside. We still had fun being outside in the warmer weather. Hopefully winter is on its way out and there will be more warm weather headed our way and more fun animals to meet!

Pirate's Life for B!

Cabin fever has fully set in thanks to the very cold temps outside. We're doing our best to keep busy inside, but we're all aching for spring. The following was Ben's attempt at entertaining himself the other night. It worked well for all of us! We had a search for burried treasure and tried to figure out what you put in a treasure chest. It was very nice to be imagining ourselves on the high seas in the Carribean, when in reality we were awaiting a snowstorm and arctic air. Hope everyone else is getting through this last part of winter all right. If you're getting "the fever" too please feel free to join our fleet! Till next time me harties!
