MacKenzie Marsh Collage

 

MacKenzie Marsh collage

One day last week my husband and I took a little walk in the MacKenzie Marsh, a special wetland in the town of Aurora near us.   I had heard members of my camera club talk about the birds they found there but I had not had the opportunity to visit.   Hubby surprised me by asking to stop by and have a look at it.  He is still using a walker to get around but is becoming a little more stable on his feet.  This was a big feat for him. We managed to get only to the little bridge at the bottom of the hill but in the almost dried up pond we saw some ducks, a killdeer and a preening blue heron. Hopefully we will be able to visit again.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
