Labor Day Weekend??

Really?

Adventurer Weekend 010 (687x1024)

I blame Tami because, you know, I always blame her for everything anyway . . .

But hey!  I have news!!!

Tami and I saw the eagles!

First, we caught them adding sticks to the nest . . .

And then a week later, Tami and I were walking to the lakefront with Cookie, when we saw an adult eagle soaring overhead.  So we started running,

which isn’t easy with cameras, mind you!  And we made it just in time to point our cameras and shoot.

Tami got horrible, terrible photos..  Because she forgot to take the lens cap off.
