The Birds & The Peas

...& The Bluebonnets!

A year ago, I blogged about a bird who had built her nest over our back door. I was, indeed, a little sad when she left. In fact, I didn't remove the nest until several months later. So one can only guess how excited I was when she returned again this year to nest in the very same spot! When I told my friend Gail how badly I felt for removing her first nest, she called me a homewrecker. Ha! Her new nest wasn't visible at first, but she has since renovated and it's much bigger now.
Once again, she has two baby birds who have grown at lightning speed. By the time I first saw them, they were already the size shown here.
Last week we went to a bluebonnet field with our new friends, Allison, Eden & James. Eden and Noah discovered peas were also growing in the field, and they had a good time picking and opening them.
In their typical fashion, Noah and Penelope gave me a run for my money as I attempted to get a good photo of them together. This is about as good as it gets.
I was so excited about this adorable vintage-inspired romper that I have had my eye on for the last year. I had the entire outfit planned out, down to some cute little gold sandals. Penelope however, had her own ideas about the perfect shoes. Her faux fur leopard print boots were clearly the winners.
I try to compensate for being a very unskilled photographer by taking hundreds of photos in the hopes of lucking out with a few good ones. This is my favorite.
