I have been loving this summer break! Nick is still doing research and studying but we have more time together as a family and almost every night after dinner me, Nick, and Carly go on a walk at the park by our home. It’s been fun to get away from distractions (dirty dishes, blogging, netflix, studying…), give Carly a break from taking everything out of the cabinets and bookshelves, and have good chats with the hubs while enjoying the beautiful summer weather.
Usually our walks are pretty low key and relaxing but the other night things got a little eventful. We heard some loud rustling up in a tree and then saw a bird drop down. We got closer and found a squirrel with a baby bird’s head in its mouth! Nick threw a pine cone at the squirrel and it kind of scared him off but I think we were too late. I had no idea that squirrels were so mean! I thought they just climbed trees and ate acorns.
