Empty Nesters Already?!?!

WOW..didn't think the hubby & I would be empty nesters quite this plans for a month long tropical vacation for 2 just yet though!

Our robin family I told you about here & here have grown up and moved out of their nest!  This morning before school Savannah wanted to peek in and see them like we do several times each day..well this morning 1 of the babies got spooked and launched out...we got dive bombed & squawked at by the mom & dad birds and then they busily tried to chase down the baby who was running all over the driveway and across the road.  Soon after another baby got courageous and leapt out of the nest...there is still 1 little guy hanging out in there as of right now {sprawled out & enjoying the extra space I think!}but I don't think it will be long before he bails too!  It has been so fun seeing all this unfold, the mom building the nest, the 3 eggs appearing then hatching and watching them grow from these tiny little skin babies into big feathery toddlers! ha!ha! 

Here are some pictures we took along the way.........
