Owls and Birds

Happy Saturday!! What are your plans for the weekend? I plan on enjoying my 80 degree weather. Yes, you read that right. It's supposed to be 80 degrees and sunny this weekend. I plan on spending every second I can outside. Well, after I finish this blog post.

Last year for my son's 8th birthday, we had a pretty cool party for him. Our friend, who is an animal trainer and falconer, brought his birds to the party. One of the birds he brought is a Eurasian Eagle Owl and was the coolest bird I have ever seen. He was so calm and his eyes were amazing and we all had the opportunity to touch him. And here he is...Periwinkle!

I was happy to find this Basic Grey paper in my stash, I thought it went perfect with these photos. In fact, I ended up scrapping my son's entire birthday with these papers.

Our friend also brought a peregrine falcon and a huge, huge vulture named Dexter. It was one of the coolest parties, even the parents were fascinated! If you want to see the recap, check it out: Kevin's 8th Birthday.

That's it for me today! I am off to enjoy the beautiful weather and the 3-day weekend. Have a great weekend everyone!!

Seriously it's 80 degrees? I cannot even imagine!!! Sounds like back home to me, which I don't miss one bit!!!!

Here its chilly, yet oddly warm where all the snow is melting. But then we'll get a freeze, it will start snowing and do the same thing all over again. It's like a cycle.... But I love the snow and seasons so I can't complain!!!

Love your layout and the cute colors too!
Happy weekend Mara!

What beautiful photos! And those BG papers are perfect. Such a cool idea for a boy's bday party. Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weekend. We got up to 86 yesterday, but this morning is looking gray so I am not sure what to expect.
