Back track time!!!

My stream ran almost the entire time I was away. So a report from this morning.


Dad wanted on the egg - Mom not really interested in getting up so Dad did some shoving to get his way

Wow BET -- that is a very unspeckly egg....great captures and summary of the day here....thank you so much for doing this for all to enjoy! I particularly find Dad so comical as he is so insistent on getting onto that egg...what a sweetheart!
The sun is now going down....it its still nice and warm....
7:45 pm Is this Dad? very white chest, but it could be the glare from the setting sun....looking all over the place....very watchful!

still pretty nice out there....looks like its warm enough that it won't change from rain into the white stuff in the near future....here's hoping so anyway! fingers crossed
