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:

"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!

"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 ...

To watch on YouTube, please click here.

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?!?



  1. That was nice that you could cool off while waiting for your dad. We enjoyed watching the funny way those birds forage for food.

  5. Those American Avocets are pretty cool swiping their beaks through the water! I"m so glad that you got sprinkled on to cool off☺

    Hi Cammie, looks like you guys had a fun trip. I could feel the sprinkler, it's warm here today so it really felt good. ~ nose nudges Bonnie Pup

  8. We bet that sprinkler felt good after the muggy weather around here. Mom said someone turned on the sprinkler from the skies last night and let it run all night long with lots of bangs and lights to accompany it. For some reason she didn't get much sleep:)

  9. That cool water must have felt great as you sat there. The Avocet is very cool!

  10. WE really enjoyed watching the Avocet's. They have such long beaks to swing around in the water

  12. We can't wait for the cools to arrive. SOON!

  13. WOW that looked like fun! We felt like we were right there with you. Is it just us or did it seem like those birds had really big feet :)
