Birding & Family in Spanish Fork

May 27 & 28, 2018

These two days were a combination of birding and hanging out with our sister Jessica and her family. We played games with the kiddos, watched a thought provoking funny movie “Stranger than Fiction,” ate, laughed and took the family birding. I had a lot of fun but took very few successful photos. My excuse is that either the birds were flighty or I was too busy with my niece and nephew.
