Last Saturday the boys and I went to Concord to a graduation party. When we called Joshua as we were heading home he said, "tell Carvie I have a surprise for him when you get home."
"what is it?" I asked.
"A bird." he said.
Right I thought. Its probably a chocolate bird or something.
We arrived home and Josh greeted us with a little shoe box and it it, sure enough, was a little green bird.
As he opened the box the little bird flew off and perched above our front door. Josh had found him in our garage and caught him and kept him in the shoe box so Carvie could see him and they could set him back free together.
That little guy didn't want to be re-caught and we had to chase him around the upstairs a bit before he finally let Josh catch him with Carver's little dollar store butterfly net.
Carver was in hog heaven and thought it was so cool.
The little bird was so sweet and once Josh had him in his hand let him hold him without freaking out or anything. Which kind of made us wonder if he was really someone's pet bird?
Josh told Carver that birds were meant to be outside so we had to let him go back to his mama and daddy. So outside they went and we set the little guy free.
Fun little adventure for a Saturday afternoon!
