We had planned to go bowling, but it was such a beautiful day, we thought it would be a shame to spend it indoors and instead we met at the RBG in Burlington for a hike.
The birds are so tame there they will eat right out of your hand! This was a big thrill for my girls, especially Deanna!
Deanna the birdfeeder!
Notice Grandpa holding her arm steady...she was thrilled that she got a bird to land on her!
Tim was pretty good at attracting the chicks. Chickadees, that is...
Here is Tyson, my youngest nephew (so far!)

Jonah - just love those curls!

The little ones...
Poor Natalie came down with the flu the night before, so she stayed home with Art. She didn't even care, which is an indication of how lousy she was feeling. Today she cannot even keep liquids down.
It was a great hike, followed by a yummy pizza supper and good fellowship at Mom and Dad's. For all those times as a child that I wished I was an only child, I am certainly glad now that I was not. It's so great to get together with our whole big noisy group.....
....5 months til camping!!!!
