One Robin's Nest

Last month I discovered a robins nest down by the grain bins in our yard. Over the next few weeks I enjoyed quickly checking it whenever I would take Abigail for a walk by it in her stroller. The mom and dad birds. They were both protective of the nest and would fly quite close to me. You can see the male is a lot darker then the female.

The first time I found the nest it had four beautiful blue colored eggs in it. I love robins:).

A few days later this little fellow had hatched. Then there were two of them. The other two eggs never did hatch.The next time I went down to look there was a huge difference; one of the babies had already flown and this guy was ready to go as well. And finally, the empty nest. It was fun watching for a few weeks:).

-Doing Some Baking-

Making pies has never been a favorite activity of mine; (although I usually like the end results:)) for some reason I don't really enjoy working with pastry dough. It's funny, but before getting married, I would usually have one of my sisters make the dough while I made the filling for pies:). These days I make my own dough:) and the other day I made two pies, a strawberry and and an apple. If you haven't already you should try out this Strawberry Pie Recipe it has become my favorite pie:).


Getting ready to cook to cook the berries...


Almost ready for the oven..


Finished! A strawberry and apple pie:). What is your favorite kind of pie?
