A new walking strategy - I wear Bebe Z in the Bjorn and push Fray in the stroller. We bird watch. Fray uses her "noculars" - the world looks mighty exciting through those, especially when you put the wrong end to your eyes.

(Her shoes are often on the wrong feet as well - "to confuse predators" OPA says, giving Fray the benefit of the doubt.)

We usually head down River Road in Arlington - where we mostly see crows, jays, goldfinches, and the occasional pileated woodpecker or heron.

Fray, never one to shy from exaggeration, is constantly seeing hawks and owls. Mhmm.

  1. I wish we still had the condo noculars! I'll tell Van about the shoe switching trick. You never know when you'll need to confuse predators around here. Love you all!!!
