Sunday we had a quiet morning enjoying all our feathered friends flying in and out before having a yummy breakfast. We packed up early and headed to Rondeau Park for the afternoon. We hiked the Tulip Trail on a very sunny afternoon and enjoyed some quiet time on a bench in the woods with the sounds of spring all through the air. We watched the migrating birds as they enjoyed some of the treats that the visitors center has out for the travelers. It was a busy but exciting first weekend away. I can hardly wait for Friday to arrive as we are heading to Killbear Park for the first time.
