Signs of Spring



You know spring has arrived at our house because every year since we have lived in Remington Point, a robin has built a nest in my front door wreath. One year I didn't know the eggs had hatched and while I was watering my ferns, the babies all jumped out of the nest at the same time. I about had a heart attack!! They are always the cutest things when they are jumping around trying to fly. It is amazing to me how the momma bird builds such a strong safe place for her little ones to stay, and how beautiful the eggs are. I showed them to Arden and she didn't believe that they were actually real! This is such a sweet sight, especially after all the bad weather that we had today. It is amazing that spring can bring such beauty and such devastation all at the same time!
