Morning in Florida

We woke to an unexpected visitor on our deck this morning. I excitedly took Jack outside to see him, only to find ourselves stuck outside when he decided he would rather be inside, and then waited at the door for someone to let him in.
I wasn't zoomed in at all...he was just THAT brazen.
 It's not that I was afraid of him (I totally was...do you see that beak?!), but I had no idea how to get my enormous self and my toddler past the bird and into the house before Mr. Bird let himself in to get a cup of coffee. 
Check out the look Jack is giving Mr. Bird!
Thankfully my sister Bethany shooed him off with a box...for at least long enough for us to get inside.  Our friend did make a break for the door after that, but we managed to shut him out and simply observe him from behind the glass doors.  
We're definitely not in PA anymore! 

P.S. Thank you all for your travel tips, our flights were switched and delayed but Jack did WONDERFUL.  Even the other passengers told us how well-behaved he was (which makes me laugh EVERY SINGLE TIME).

  1. my goodness. that bird is bigger than the boys...I think I'd been a bit scared too!

    Once, when my kids were small and Alisha was about Jacks age, we went out to eat and they sat us by an old couple. After that couple had eaten, they walked over and told us how well behaved our kids were, and when we first got there, they cringed when they saw the kids. But we have well behaved kids, so it was no problem.......my husband and I just looked at each other wide eyed...because we knew the truth....it was a fluke...that was all!!!!

    Have a great vacation.....Jack looks precious as always!!
