Last year about this time of the year, we had some morning visitors. This year it would appear last year's baby is now this year's full grown rock chuck. T Rex loved them last year and was just as excited to see them again this year.
The only exception this year, aside that baby is all grown up, is that T Rex can talk about it. And not just talk about it but go on and on and on endlessly about it - "Rock chuck go bye bye. Rock chuck go over the rocks" - you get the idea. I find sometimes that I totally tune him out to the detriment of T Rex Dad. He will ask me a question and I don't reply simply because I'm used to a toddler jabbering endlessly during the day.
In fact, today we instituted a new "game" - quiet time. It consists of quiet activities and little or no talking. This is for my sanity plus, T Rex needs to learn how to be quiet as there are times when it is necessary.
We live against a nature preserve so we get some interesting visitors both on land and via air. These are by far some of the cutest.
Today at the neighborhood park we stood amidst a colony of chipmunk-like creatures. I had T Rex Princess in the chest pack so I could not get down at their level to take photos but I think these illustrate what it was like.
We're certainly enjoying the small creatures!
