Colorado Report: Birds, Babies, and A Blogging Buddy Too!



Hi everybody!

We are having a great time in Colorado visiting with family and getting ready for my niece's wedding on Saturday.

Here's a Towhee who visited the backyard.



On the front porch is a family of baby birds, nestled in a decorative nest.



They are waiting for Mama to return with lunch!



I was thrilled to meet my newest great-niece, Brisbane.



And here's my newest great-nephew, Turner!




And !!!BONUS!!!

I got to meet a Blogger Buddy!


This is Rebecca of Living and Loving Today.

I went to high school with her mom and I am SO glad she recommended I read Rebecca's blog.

Please visit Rebecca if you get a chance.


She is a talented writer and a wonderful person!


We had a great visit and I am grateful to the Blogging Universe for these kinds of connections!

I am grateful for all of you too!!

The fun continues tomorrow.....
