in all things
Oh boy did we walk!
The Birds have definitely been strolling! In fact each morning for the last 10 days I packed the little grand-bird into his stroller for a refreshing morning walk! A perfect opportunity for mom and dad to get a little extra shut-eye
With ball in hand…
we hit the road. A flock of Ibis perched on top of the cocoa plum hedges. I'm sure they were hoping for a breakfast of tiny lizards. Suddenly I heard a tiny “oooooooooh” followed with a giggle! I’m sure he was just as amazed as I seeing them precariously stepping from limb to limb. Nature on full display for the Birds!
The bougainvillea caught his eye…
and we just had to stop, just a touch with a whisper of “Pretty!” Such beautiful flowers, the bright colors singing in the morning light.
What a beautiful fountain!
Quite a sight to behold, complete with a fresh spray of water as we rounded the circle!
The asparagus fern….
definitely one of my favorites, was just too tempting! We had to have a touch! Oh so soft, be gentle little one.
We had walked quite a bit…
time for just one more touch. This time it was a tickle from the sweet Mulygrass accompanied with another “wow”
By this time we were getting a wee bit hungry...
so we hurried home. This little one is fascinated with trucks of all kinds, so any truck we passed required serious study. Luckily arriving home we had a nice set of trucks to play with. I knew this would keep him busy while I made breakfast!
Double Chocolate muffins were on the menu this morning!
I knew I had to work fast…the hungry flock of birds would be awake shortly!

While singing the latest…
version of Baby Shark, we mixed the wet ingredients in a bowl.
Pirate Baby Shark…
was a new one for me. Have you heard it? We danced and sang while stirring in the dry ingredients.
Sharing a few chocolate chips…
with the baby bird as he tugged on my shorts garnered a big chocolate smile.
Quick, into the oven…
I hear footsteps quickly approaching! Baked at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, it was a challenge to let them cool for 5 minutes!
I guess it was worth the wait!
Smiles all around! More Please?
What a fun morning, certainly a fun @wednesdaywalk! Sharing the marvels of nature with my grandson is truly a blessing. There is nothing like seeing the joy on his face as he experiences nature at its best. Thanks to @tattoodjay we are able to share our walks from all around the globe! Take a moment to get out today, take a walk. I promise you’ll be so glad you did!
Thanks for stopping by!
Stay tuned for more sweet treats with the Bird family!
