Mark and Allan both had a few days off while the older girls were gone. We enjoyed spending the day at Potato Creek.
We took a picnic lunch and then went exploring in the woods, looking for bald eagles and, for the first time ever, let the kids play on the beach. It was a fun, and very tiring afternoon!
After releasing Audrey’s last batch of butterflies, we enjoyed following them around to see were they would land. Most flew into the sunny field, but some flew to the trees over the water.
Daddy loaned me his 75-300 mm lens this week. It has been fun trying to get pictures of our hummingbird. Hopefully, he will come back and pose for me again soon.
Another of my favorite flowers.
It has been a wonderful year for flowers!
Daddy put a bluebird nest in his yard. This is the first year that a bird family moved in! It was exciting to be able to visit the nursery yesterday and today.
Just a small sampling of the hail we discovered this evening after we got home from church. A few trees in the woods are down and a lot of small branches will need to be picked up. It looks like we missed a good storm.
This beautiful basket of wild flowers was discovered after answering the door bell. Whoever left them wrote a note saying they were for me and then disappeared. What a sweet surprise.
While the older girls enjoyed going to MOPS, I took Adrian and Megan to explore Wellfield Gardens. The spring flowers are starting to come up and it was a beautiful day to go exploring.

Every spring, since reading
Miracles on Maple Hill, we have enjoyed a spring scavenger hunt. We search in the woods and at the park, looking for our favorite flowers.
I can not always remember their names, but recall more each year.
