What a wonderful day!

Well, our tubing trip to Helen yesterday was FANTASTIC. We've had some rain lately so the river was up enough that we didn't drag much. Scott tethered his raft to Fern's and Lulu was tethered to me. He had a push stick but I did not. This would have been handy. It was about 90 minutes down, and gentle enough that Fern almost fell asleep laying in her tube. We saw a couple snakes and turtles too. We can't wait to do it again.

We got home late afternoon and we decided to get all dolled up and take Daddy out for his birthday dinner. I even put on a skirt. He picked Wild Wing and it was tasty.

I believe that Lulu has contracted Fifth Disease. She has that 'slapped cheek' look, sort of a lacy rash. She's had it on her arms as well. She has a very mild fever and some diarrhea. We are going to take it easy today. Apparently, it can be quite dangerous to pregnant women.

An update on the bluebird: we lost on egg in Rainbow nest. I found part of one on the ground. We have got to install a predator guard.
