Signs of Spring...

...have been rampant in our yard!!

Sighting #1 - The 3 white tailed deer in our backyard. I might mention that I live in a city of almost 1 million people, so this is a very nice thing to see around here. The deer scared the crap out of the poor kids!! All they saw were these huge bodies jumping over the retaining wall coming at them!! They stayed, they pooped, they went (the deer, not the boys)!

Sighting #2 - The cutest chubby little mouse! Funny thing is the young cat next door had no idea what to do with it! Poor mouse was freaking out and the cat just played with it...well at one point she was carrying it around in her mouth, but no harm was done. The mousey must have 9 lives!!

Sighting #3 is actually something that we can only hear. We suspect we have a robin's nest in one of our chimneys. Luckily, it is not a fireplace we use! We have had robins in our yard for about 6 years in a row now...I see that they are getting creative!
