Lazy Weekend

Husband and I have been so productive recently, that this past weekend., we decided not to be  We did a lot of cooking and caught up on our sleep.  Maybe it was because it was the first weekend of the summer that was actually warm.  OK, I know it isn't officially summer, but it is June, and we have had cool, windy, rainy conditions throught the spring.  Here are two pictures from the weekend that made me happy.

I mentioned previously, that we had a mama bird make a nest above our motion light on our house.  Well, the little peepers have now left the nest, and mama couldn't be prouder.  I love the picture in the middle, where she seems to be instructing her three kids (mama is the one on the far right).  She was actually teaching the babies how to fly in our neighbor's backyard.  It was precious.

I was able to identify the birds (thank you Wikipedia and Birds of Northern California) as Black Phoebes

Since the weather was so nice, the dogs spent a lot of time outside in the shade.  I don't think I have ever gotten a decent picture of the three of them together.  This made me really happy.

Awww these photos are so precious! Have you seen that YouTube video of a mama chick leading her baby chicks (who were lined up in a straight line behind her). But then there was a strong gust of wind and some of the baby chicks got knocked over and out of line :( The good thing is they all eventually found one another. So cute!
