Before we knew it, they had flown the coop. I was amazed at the sense of loss we all felt to realize that they had flown away. I took advantage of the first family leaving before we were ready and documented a little bit more diligently.Here is the second little family (not even two days old).
The mother and father are very protective, but I think that they've gotten used to the fact that we are regularly so close. They won't even fly away if we come outside anymore.
Right now, the second batch of birds are getting ready to fly. They are already so much bigger than this last photo and I feel like a proud mama every time I watch them.
This has been such a fun time for our family. Who knows, maybe we WILL get a dog?! But then again, we've been spoiled with a pet that will take care of itself without even a little bit of help from us. Hmmm, maybe we'll start with a fish and see how long it survives before attempting something that will pee all over my carpet.

Now, thanks to modern technology, I was able to cancel all 5-6 of my accounts that the wallet had cards to, Hubby will close our checking account and reopen another, we will buy B another camera, renew my temple recommend (yet again), get new insurance cards, and I'll finally get a cuter, newer wallet... BUT! I have to fly home on Tuesday and I have absolutely NO identification. (This was the main reason, violation aside, that I was feeling nauseated yesterday.) Luckily, I was able to file a police report at the waterpark and the airline will take a copy of that as identification. *Sigh of relief.*
Even though this day will still make me cringe a little, I was able to get some perspective last night and realized that it could've been SOOOO much worse and that given the option of the alternative, I would gladly give away my wallet and even my son's birthday gift in a heartbeat. With that said, I wanted to lend some advice to those of you who wanted to visit a park of any kind. Take a small amount of cash with you and put it somewhere on your person (I even saw someone at the waterpark carrying with them a plastic bag with their essentials.) and leave the rest in the locked car. But double check that your car is locked before you leave it as well.
On a brighter note, we got some fun photos that I'll post as soon as we're safely at home.
