A Watchful Mother

I've had many experiences with baby squirrels and their mothers and a few other wildlife animals.  I remember taking care of a baby bird with my dad when I was a young girl.  I've passed the caring and respect of animals on to my son.  
One year on July 4th, Kyle was 3 or 4 yrs old, there was a bunny with a broken leg, we scooped her up and Kyle held her all the way to the wildlife center.  He named it Firecracker.  Well, turns out it was a she and she was pregnant.  Her leg healed and her babies lived. :)  Kyle will never forget holding her and saving her.  
Hope you enjoy this short video. :)

My 45th Birthday

I'm 45 today and lovin' it!  As long as the sun is shining and the birds are singing, I'm a happy girl!
Does anyone else have a birthday today or this month?  March, April, May and June are our busiest months for family birthdays. 

When my hubby and son asked what I would like for my birthday I told them the only thing I want is a chocolate-raspberry cake, made by the two of them.  YUMMY!   

This is a pic of me from my first birthday. :)
Now I'm off to enjoy my day!  Hope your day is wonderful!

Is It Really April?!

Hi and happy April fool's day and spring time!  I sure hope everyone is doing well. :)
We've been so busy packing, finding a home, and celebrating all kinds of special days.  

On Valentine's Day my son gave me these pretty roses.  Ever since he was a very young boy he would pick me a flower because he said it always made me smile. :)  

March 1st was my dad's anniversary of being self employed, 36 years!  And he couldn't have done it without my mom. :)
March 6th my hubby celebrated his 40th birthday!

On March 8th our fur baby, Roxanne-Love, celebrated her 9th birthday!  
March 12th was my uncle's birthday!  
March 25th was my dad's birthday!
We're also celebrating that we have a new home in Cary, NC!  Yay!!!  It couldn't be a prettier time of year to make this big move.  The pups are very excited because they will have a bigger yard to run and chase butterflies in. :)  

It's hard to believe it's already April!   We have another Mama Mallard sitting on her nest in our yard.  She took a bath on our front porch yesterday in a pail of water that we set out for her. :)  

The weather here in Orlando couldn't be any nicer, it's sunny and around 73 degrees...just beautiful!  Hope you are having a beautiful day as well!
