About two weeks ago, we went out to Terhune Farms in Princeton, for their Firefly Festival with some friends. We had a great time eating farm fresh barbecue, dodging through occasional downpours, making buggy antennae and wings,
coloring firefly wings
going on a tractor ride,

listening to kid-friendly music by the talented Miss Amy, climbing all over farm equipment,
driving the John Deere with Jeremiah
going through a gymnastics obstacle course,
Monkey Nose climbing with gymnastics instructor
and feeding some sheep and ducks. Oh, and just as the sun was setting, a beautiful double rainbow appeared over the field.

It was a great day!
I didn’t really mean to have such a wonderfully alliterate title, but I like it 🙂
Anyway, Monkey Nose and I went out in the front yard to do some much overdue weeding. We kneeled down and got to work. Then I heard a little noise like this, “What work, tee work!” It took a few repeats to realize MN was singing the song from “Wonderpets”. It was so cute! Every time she pulled up a weed, she sang her version of “What’s gonna work? Teamwork!”
After a while, we turned to pull weeds from under this tree.
There were a lot under there. They were hard to see because of all those weepy branches. As I cleared them away, I saw these little blue things.
Can you see them? They’re robin eggs! How exciting! But, how did they get there? Hmm…
Then I looked up and saw this.
A robin’s nest! How cool! We have a robin family in our tree! And, it’s right in front of a window, so we can watch them come and go! (Can you tell I’m excited?) I hope they keep living there so we can take more pictures! This may become the first post in a series. We’ll see. 😉
