Hope the title didn’t make you think something super sexy was coming! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, it’s Canadian Thanksgiving today, and so I’m going to enjoy another day with my family (my daughters and son-in-law are visiting for the weekend!).

But I thought I’d just take today to share some quick pictures that my husband took while we were birdwatching on our recent trip in our RV. We’re back home now, but one thing we like to do as we travel around is get out and look at birds. It helps us get more active together (at least we’re hiking!), and we have a goal and something to work towards (can we find our 500th bird? Yes, we can this trip!).

Birdwatching with my husband!

I just want to encourage everybody to try to find something to do with your husband. It doesn’t have to be something you both enjoy to the same extent; Keith’s way more into it than I am. But I still enjoy it, and it lets us spend time together. And that’s important.

Here you go!

A cactus wren:

A cute little hummingbird (I forget which kind! See, I’m not that great a birdwatcher):


A Gamble’s Quail (these are even funnier looking in person!)


A Gila Woodpecker:


And here was our official 500th bird: the western bluebird!


I’m going to go have some fun with the kids today! I think we’re going to drive them back to Ottawa and then go bowling. Let’s all get creative about some things we can do with our spouse to get out of the house and away from a screen (which I may find easier to do lately since I’ve lost my phone. Sigh.)

To my fellow Canadians: Happy Thanksgiving! And to everyone else, have a great day, too.
