Lazy Birds

Yes, I'm obsessed with the birds.

They are amazing. Getting fluffier looking, but still not giving me knowing glances and fluttering about, playfully pecking at each other.

I guess it's too soon.

However, my friend Kelly, had to one-up my suburban wildlife haven with this. I mean, REALLY. :)


In non-bird related news, today we broke in the neighborhood pool with 5 hours of swimming. And when I dared to suggest it was time to leave {it was 6 p.m. after all}, there were looks of disbelief as if I just advised them to gouge out their own eyeballs with spoons.

I'm tempted to begin a swim-a-thon at 7 a.m. and see how long Jackson and Lilly will swim before they volunteer to leave the pool.

Sleeping bags required.

Lastly, I'm on the road to meeting one of my summer food goals.

Perfected the smoky blue cheese burger tonight. OH SWEET HEAVENS.

We topped it with caramelized mushrooms and onions.

And then our mouths partied.

I think we should just call you the "Bird Lady!" lol! Enjoy the pool, etc with the kids--it seems like it's going to be a short summer. The burgers sounded delish!
