Step two: Open the box!
Alright, I'll start from the beginning. Today, Lisa and a few of our friends went down to Eagle River Nature Center to watch an eagle be released. AWESOME! Apparently they do this every year but just haven't seen it advertised until this year. I was unfortunately working but Lisa called around and was able to interest the next door neighbors and our friend Kendra and her baby Malena to join her out there.
Too bad it was cloudy but ... sorry I know I keep mentioning this ... but our camera is awesome! Lisa took some phenomenal pictures today!! So happy with my wife's efforts today. Well done, Lisa!
Here comes the eagle!
Ladies posing in front of the eagle that was not being released. It was there for support I guess.
Kendra and Malena in front of the eagle. Lisa says Kendra was a real trooper. She's still getting over a cold but came out and roughed it. Way to go Kendra! Hope you feel better soon.
The scene right after the release.
When we were looking at the pictures together after they got home, I made the comment "Wow! That is a big bird!". Alyssa laughs and says..."No Daddy. That isn't Big Bird." Classic.
Piling back into the Durango to head home. You know, it's not a mini-van but it sure is roomy!
