I live in southern Manitoba,Canada,and around here the weather can change very quickly.Spring is especially variable in weather.Here are a few pictures taken last weekend.
I had my granddaughter,Kai at my house on Saturday.
She and I decided to take advantage of the lovely warm day and head to the Pembina Valley for the Hawk Watch.
For a change she was willing to pose for me,holding my binoculars.
Almost as soon as we got out of the car,this Bald Eagle came over.This was her first sighting of a Bald Eagle.
She was quite impressed.
Soon after that we saw this Red-tailed Hawk soar overhead.
I think I might be able to make a birder out of her.
If it doesn't happen,it won't be because I didn't try.
Sunday morning we woke up to this.
Heavy wet snow coming down.
It snowed off and on all day,and by the end of the day we had quite a layer.
The snow did not stop my family from celebrating Steve's birthday.I had a house full of people and we had a great time.
Take note of the cake,it was carefully decorated by Kai,with a little help from Grandma.
The love that went into doing this made the cake very special.
These two people mean the world to me.
We had two other people who also had birthdays around this time,so that is why the extra names on the cake.
I am so thankful that some of Jake's family could come out to join us for the party,as well as some friends.
Thought for Today:
Daily thank the Lord for His gifts.
Today I thank Him for the gift of family.
