Who would have thunk they were planning on leaving today!

You provided a safe nursery for them. Hope mom and dad comes back to do this again. Thank you for the photos.

Just amazing. I cannot believe they grow up so fast. I'm so glad you got to document these different stages! Makes spring more magical!
