Since the girls had the day off from school, we had to get out in the sunshine, so we went for a wonderful walk on the Pitt River dykes. We were all bundled up against the crisp weather; unfortunately, I forgot my sunglasses, as I'm not used to needing them, so I squinted a lot :) We saw two bald eagles sitting regally in the top of a dead tree silhouetted against the blue sky... gorgeous! And of course, saw a few cranes and lots of our duck friends. Layni brought her little digital camera she got for Christmas and was enthusiastically snapping away at the wildlife, mountains, trees and frost-covered grass. She is very much her mother's daughter! So her new thing she wants to be when she grows up is a photographer, "And I'll be the best, because I'm starting so young!" Sometimes I could squeeze her to death, she's just so cute.
