I Dream of Choo Choos

Last night Paul and I were laying in bed reading with Jacob nestled in a small portacrib across the room from us.  Paul was engrossed in Harry Potter while I was submerged in a Helen McInnes spy thriller. 

Suddenly Jacob rolled over in his sleep, “Choo! Choo!” he called. 

Paul and I froze, knowing that we were caught and that our light had awakened the boy. But on closer inspection we found him still sound asleep.  We chuckled quietly as we thought of our boy’s dreams of Planes, trains, and automobiles.

3 Little Birds

At Paul’s Aunt’s cabin at the beach there is a mother bird who regularly makes her nest there. Upon our last visit there we had the pleasure of observing three adorable baby birds huddled in a nest above the back door.

This was my lucky shot – just as I took the picture the momma (or poppa) flew in with food for the little tykes.
