Aren't those baby robins SOOOOO cute... and loud?!?!

What a pretty butterfly!

This is my dog Pepper. She is a german shephard mix. Isn't she cute!?!?

And this is her wondering why I'm taking her picture.

And this is her being adoribly adorible!

Play with your food!

This is called Pig Pie. I used bologna and cookie cutters to make the pigs, and a square cookie cutter for the trough, one little piece of pepper for the food in the trough, and Catalina and Ranch dressing for the mud and the food that's dripping down the trough. And it's all on top of baby spinach.

Coral Snake was making stuff, too.

Mr. Smiley! Whole wheat bread with chunky peanut butter, and turkey cut outs, to make a face!

Great American Backyard Bird Count!

Here's something everybody can do. It's fun, and easy. What you do is you look outside or go outside and you see how many of one kind of bird you can see a whole bunch of times. And it doesn't have to be one bird. See how many you can see.

The dates are February 17 through the 20th. You can do it once, or every day. Then you put your report in to the website.

Here's what we saw today (note from Mom: it's not how many birds you see total, it's how many of one kind of bird you see at one time - there's lots of info on the website):

4 chickadees
3 tufted titmouse
1 nuthatch
1 hawk (Mom saw, up in the sky)
1 junco
1 purple finch
1 sparrow
2 parakeets :-) (our birds - I just wanted to add that!)

This was in a half hour. You have to do it for at least fifteen minutes. Have fun!

Hi - This is North Star, now it comes up as my name instead of Mom's. Coral Snake and I took pictures today. This is a rock I found once.

Made by a Beaver!

Some Summer Nature Pictures

These pictures are all from our vacation at the cottage on Lake Ontario this past August.
Coral Snake found this bird's nest.

This is a cool sunset picture that Dad took.

It was sunny most of the time - but here are some clouds.

There is a real buffalo ranch near the cottage.

North Star found these bones.

Coral Snake Explains Some Pictures (Part 1)

That's a special place on Lake Ontario.

All the kids playing in the water and jumping off the boats.

The campfire that we sometimes have.

That's a dead fish my cousin found.

A water snake looks just like the rock. Can you find it?

We were knocking down our old sandbox, and then Mom picked up the grill cover and saw this thing. We thought it was alive.

Then we saw the hole in it. We realized that it molted.

We think it's from a cicada. This is Coral Snake writing. North Star thinks it's really freaky. Mom is holding it in this picture. (Click on it to see it enlarged - if you dare!)

A baby bunny from Mimi's house! (Click to enlarge to see it better.)

Some mushrooms from our backyard!
