Painting our "bobby" houses



Yesterday the children and I went outside to soak up the last bit of the day's sun and to do a little something from our Summer Bucket List that we meant to do last week...we painted bird houses, or as Brooks would say, "bobby" houses. :) For quite some time now Brooks has absolutely loved looking outside our kitchen windows, searching for birds. And when he spots one, flying or hopping around in our backyard, pulling worms from the dirt and quickly gobbling them up, he'll excitedly say "Mama! Oh! Ooh! Bobby, bobby!" So I thought that he'd really enjoy painting a house for them.  In between his various methods of adding fantastic splashes of color to his little house (he even figured out this sweet dripping method, what a creative little guy), Brooks would take breaks and go over to Ava in the shade and give her kisses or join her on the soft towel for some cloud watching. Goodness I love watching those two together. Adam and I got in on the fun too, earlier today we painted our own little love-birds house. I painted the white sides, and he did the blue roof. I adore it. Now we just need to put birdseed in them and figure out how to hang them up in the trees...hmmmm.

And in honor of our bird houses, and because we just purchased our plane tickets to Portland in August (YESSS!) I thought I'd share this a hilarious (if you appreciate quarky humor like Adam and me) clip from Portlandia that involves bobbies, umm, I mean birds. haHA
