Birthdays are so much Fun!!!

I am now officially old!!! I think once you go above the double nickles you are supposed to be old but I refuse to grow up even if I am old so there. On Saturday we celebrated my birthday by going to Rondeau Park.. love that place. I packed us up a nice picnic lunch and off we went. It was a beautiful day with the sun shining down on us. The trails were perfect. The Carolian forest was alive with flowers bursting from forest floor and the birds were singing, the trees were in full bud.. it was just a great time to be there.

We watched a Red Bellied Woodpecker for a while, such a beautiful bird. The Chickadees play peek a boo with us from the tops of tree they have such a marvelous song. The Cape May would not stay still long enough for us to get a good look at him, I got some yellow streaks but that is all. I did get a pic of another bird that I have no idea what it might be, when I first took the pic I thought it was a Robin but after looking at it, I now know it isn't. I will send the pic to the Park department to find out what it is. It was a great day even if we didn't spot any "special" birds. :)

I finished the album for my BFF and she was thrilled with it. She looked through it several times commenting on this and that. So I was happy to have been able to make it for her. I love being able to do things for her because she is always to happy with them.

I have made a couple of layouts for myself. I did one of my Mother who passed away in 1998.

Theresa decided she needed an Hammock so she made one.. Her mother took some pics which just had to be scrapped :)

I love this photo which Janet took at the Toronto Zoo.

That's all for now, I will have more later. Donald has his track and field day later this week which I will be attending (with bells and my camera of course) so you can count on lots of layouts coming from that one. hahaha
