Whew. We're finally back from our month long vacation visiting family. We had a great time! We had an extra special treat on the trip too. When we arrived at my parents' house, two baby robins had just hatched in a nest outside their house. Pinky was enthralled by them! We checked on them every day to see how big they had grown. Here's a picture from the first few days.
We were lucky to be able to stay until the babies grew big enough to fly off on their own. It was really fun to watch them grow. Once they were gone, we removed the nest to check out how it was made (again, Pinky was VERY interested) and we found one completely intact egg that had never hatched for some reason. Such a neat find!!
