Busy Saturday

Kelly and the boys are camping with the boy scouts this weekend so I decided the girls and I would have a day to ourselves doing something fun. Hopefully Kelly will be taking pictures so I can share those this week!

First we took Uncle Josh to work and went to the bookstore which seems to be a favorite place for their girls lately. They each got to pick out a book and some other things. After that we went to the Discovery Center. They had an Owls, Hawks and Eagle show for younger children today and brought birds to show the kids. We learned a lot about the birds and they even had a young eagle which was fun to me. I love eagles! Here are some pictures

First was the screech owl. A very small owl but very cute.

We learned they do not get their white tail feathers and heads until they are about 5years old. This one is only 4 years old.

They got to take pictures with this one also.

They are kind of leaning away because it had just spread its very large wings and flapped them both in the heads, they were giggling after that.

I talked to the people with the birds and they have a rescue center here in Ketchikan and they gave me their number so when my dad comes to visit this summer I can take him to visit it. He is an even bigger eagle fan then I am! I told him this today and we was pretty excited about this.

After the bird show we went to watch our friends son play soccer.

He has recently been excepted to the Alaskan Olympic Development team as a goalie!
We had fun watching but it was very cold and windy today!

After the game we went to dinner just us girls then walmart to pick up a couple of things.

After that it was time to go pick up Uncle Josh from work and we noticed that is was a beautiful moon outside so we pulled over to look at it and get some pictures.

Don't worry Terri - every time you post - you capture with interesting postings alongside delightful photo's.

A day of joy and learning for all - even of the mystique of the moon...

Take care and hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

That's so cool the kids got to go to the discovery center. The owls are cool!

Happy Belated Birthday to Izzak!! I can't believe he's 13! I am little nervous about the kids getting older - the whole teenage angst gives me the shakes, he-he!

Sending positive thoughts and prayers to your sister in law. :)

What a gorgeous way to share the day with your girls!

I'm so taken with birds of prey, and that photo of the owl just sums up why. What a "hoot."

Heather K said...

looks like you had some fun girl time. It's great to get out and distract yourself when things are stressful! At least it is for me!! :)
looks like the girls enjoyed the birds...and the picture with the moon is beautiful! It's so nice now that the days are getting longer isn't it! we're loving it but cant WAIT until summer. If you come down over summer holidays maybe we can have another go at meeting up..that would be fun. :D
