Day #1311 (Tue., Aug. 6, 2013) – A Tube Of Birds

2013-08-06 - Tube Of BirdsKatie woke up at 9 am. Anya wanted to take her to the museum, but Katie insisted on going to the park to watch squirrels. I don’t know what they eventually ended up doing – Katie threw quite a fit….

When I got home from work this evening Katie immediately asked for a present. I asked her if she was a good girl and of course she replied “yes”. My wife vouched for that as she let her wash her hair…one thing that Katie definitely does not like. As a result Katie got a “Special Present”…the tube of birds (see photo to the right) that I picked up at the local toy store a few days ago.

These birds are quite elaborate in their painting scheme and the choices are familiar ones: blue jay, robin, cardinal, etc. Katie and I immediately took to making a tree scene out of Duplo blocks and putting the various birds on top of the trees. As the story evolved each bird would take a snake, spider, or other type of bug up into the trees to eat them. Katie seems real fascinated with what each specific bird would eat.
