Boxing With Maggie!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Oh, what an awesome day I had yesterday!  It all started with the FedEx Man delivering something to Mom and Dad -- IN.  A.  BOX!!!!!!!!

Mom emptied it out, then called us girls over to check it out!

"Yeah.  So ... I don't have to ..."
"No, sweet Cam, of course not.  Not if you don't want to."
"Oh, what an AWESOME box!!!!!"

Honestly!  Cam and Mom don't know what they're missing!  It's a BOX!!!!!

I got to box for quite a while - Mom even shot some video!  Are you ready to take a look?  (For Mom's FaceBook friends, this is the promised extended play version!)  Roll it!

Oooh!  I know what would be fun!  Let's flip up the flap!

If anyone needs me, I'll be boxing.  You're all welcome to come join me!

Thinking Thursday

Greetings to all and hello!  It's us, Mags and Cam.  We were just ... thinking ...

"Why DID the chicken cross the road?
Which did come first, the chicken or the egg?
Why is a rubber chicken funny?...
Cam?  What do you think?"
IMG_3460CamEyeRoll
"Why am I hungry all of a sudden?"

Some of life's great mysteries!

Have a great day!

Distracted

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  Cam and I are still waiting for Mom to finish going through all the photos from our Saturday adventure - hopefully this weekend we'll have some birdie shots for you!  In the meantime, we're just hanging out.

"Hey, Mom.  Taking a break?  This a little backlit and underexposed, don't you think?"

I shouldn't have said anything.  She gets distracted so easily!  She thought this was the perfect time to do some manual exposure setting work on the iPhone.  And me?  I need to "stay".  Sheesh!

IMG_3002Mags
"Yeah, yeah.  'Stay.'  Like I don't have anything better to do!"

Well, OK.  I don't, but I might have!

Birdie pix soon, readers!  If Mom stops getting so distracted!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Cool!

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  Yesterday, it was actually COOL outside! I mean COOL!  It was amazing!  To celebrate, I decided I wanted to go for a walk!

"This is so cool!"
"And the other kind of cool, too!"

We ALL went, and that was so wonderful! Everyone had the best time! Maggie was so happy to have me and Mom there (she has been taking Dad for walks every morning!) that three times she stopped, gently put her paws on Mom's chest, and gave her kisses! Mom loves it when she does that!

I set a really good pace, but made sure to stop and smell the roses along the way ...

"These aren't roses, but close enough!"

... or Thickspike Gayfeather, as the case may be!

It was such a cool day - temperature-wise and other-wise!

I hope today is a great day for everyone!

Cammie!

Our Adventure, Part 1.5

Hello, everyone! It's me, Cammie!  As we told you yesterday, we all went on a wonderful family adventure!  Could you tell where we were?  We were right ... here:

IMG_3744MagsCamKSWetlandsEdCtr
"Hey, wait!  Where did Dad go?"
"Probably to check the bird sightings map.  Or to see the Prairie Dogs ..."

We were at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center!  That's right - a birding trip to Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area and Quivira National Wildlife Refuge.  It was fun, but quite toasty (thank Heaven for air-conditioning in the HR-V!).  Because of that, I really enjoyed doing this when we stopped for our water/snack break at the Ed Center:

"Oh, does this feel good!  Maggie, check it out!"

They were watering the Butterfly Garden and it was getting the sidewalk wet!  It felt great!

IMG_3747MagsCamKSWetlandsEdCtr
"Oh, YEAH, Cam!  Hey, Mom, you should jump in here!"
"Don't tempt me, Peeps!"
"I like this!"

Anyway, Mom has a gazillion photos to process through, but in the meantime, would you like to see a video of some American Avocets?  Don't mind the Kansas breeze ...

We'll have lots of photos for you later! I hope you enjoyed our stop at the Kansas Wetlands Ed Center! Could you feel the sprinkler?!?

Cammie!
