We started our morning off with a trip out to search for the pelicans again. Luckily, we spotted a few of them in the same pond.
Most of the snow has melted on the valley floor, just plow piles left and lots of standing water in fields. This park we are in is very soggy and has several trees and branches down. I’m so happy to see the snow finally go, it’s been on the ground for two weeks.
Lately We’ve been so interested in bird watching. I’m not sure if it’s just that we’re getting older or having fun discovering something new, possibly both.
These photos aren’t my best, but they do show off the black under their wings. When they are sitting in the water with their wings tucked in, it’s really hard to see.
We were at the dam for an hour, then we cleaned up for Joey’s basketball tournament. They won their first game and play again tomorrow at noon!🥳
On a side note, I ordered my first pair of progressive lenses this weekend, and baked bran muffins. 🤓 Does that sound like a grandma or what?! (But I’m not a grandma yet!) The glasses definitely make me feel my age.
For the past year, in the mornings I have been wearing my reading glasses over my regular glasses. Has anyone else done this? My kids think I look hilarious, but it’s the only way I can read in the morning.
Now we are on the couch for an evening of basketball. My parents are usually watching games with us, but they are at the coast camping. I’m missing them and our campsite tonight but we will be back there next weekend!
And that sums up our fun Saturday!
What did you do today? What are your weekend plans? How’s your weather holding up in your area?
