Feeding The Birds

The whole family has been sick. I was quite pleased because I managed to dodge most of the sickness that has infested our home...until this last week. Now, I am wicked sick, but the sympathy has been used up. So, I tried to plan activities this weekend that would require as little effort on my part as possible.

I decided that we should feed the birds. When I say "we", I meant everyone except me. I'm not a huge fan of "wildlife". I took the photos...

Sarah did, in fact, have birds come to her...I just wasn't quick enough to get any photos of it

Mum proved to be an expert!

Katie was quite good at standing still

Bethie. Remaining quiet and still isn't exactly her forte...

....however, Bethie excelled at pulling Sarah on the toboggan!

Sorry to hear you are sick! UGH. Great photos...can't believe those birds come right up and take the food from your hand!

Wow, that's crazy that the birds landed that close to your girls!!! My kids always end up chasing the birds around here and then wonder why they fly away!

Great pictures!! Hope you're feeling better soon!

Ladies: I am heavily medicated. I have stopped reading the labels on the packages of cold medicines, and have just taken two of everything. I'm starting to feel better... Thanks!
