365 Project: Swinging by the bay

We ventured out to the bay tonight for a picnic dinner.  It was so nice to get out for a bit.  There were a few people in the park but everyone kept their distance and seemed just as happy as we were to be “out”.  These kids have been troopers about being quarantined.  It hasn’t been easy but being at my mom’s house with lots of space and a huge porch has helped SO much!

365 Project: In Memory

In memory of Sophie, Aaron & Buddy. This morning Jude burst in the RV devastated to have found all 3 birds deceased. I don’t know that I will ever forget the broken look of devastation on his face. These kids poured their entire life in to these birds over the last 2 weeks, researching, caring for and loving them. They went from very frail and sick to thriving, learning to hunt on their own and fly. We were so close to being ready to release them. We aren’t exactly sure why they passed, but our best guess is the new live food or supplement – both started yesterday. Now we are navigating grief, loss, anger, empathy, grace. So many tears with these two today.

365 Project: Bird Rescue


My bird nerds rescued some babies. There are multiple nests in my moms yard and they noticed the parents of these chics stopped coming to the nest. We believe the mother was eaten by a hawk living one tree over and the dad stopped coming shortly thereafter. We waited and watched and they weren’t doing well at all when the kids intervened. Taryn and Jude have nursed then back to health in all the right ways (I wouldn’t even know what to do). They do in a way that’s best for the the birds, I’m so impressed by them. Jude feeds them every 20 minutes during the day. They went from limp and fragile to thriving in just a few days. Now they are chirping and flapping their wings even!

365 Project: Sleepover at Gee’s

When my mom built her beach house years ago, she envisioned sleepovers and little kid giggles drifting through the house. Tonight was the night. Jason painted the interior of our RV today and we are escaping the fumes with a sleepover. Z did not want me up in the loft at all. I finally suggested he climb up and snuggle with Jude. That worked, he cuddled up and went right to sleep. Jude loved every second of it. 🥰 If you’ve followed our instagram stories you know we’ve been having sleep issues. 🤞🏻 tonight goes ok!
