Bald Eagle Time

Last weekend the weather was beautiful. Too beautiful to sit at home inside. So Matt suggested we go to Desoto Bend to see the bald eagles.
The boys had lots of fun being silly in the visitors center.

We enjoyed "listening" to the "computer" on the phone. They thought corded phones were crazy weird.

We drove around and hiked a little and saw lots of cool things.

Like these white birds. I am not sure what kind they are.

And lots of turkeys.

But sadly I don't have a fancy camera to show you the dozens and dozens of eagles we saw.

I assure you there were about 10 flying in the sky in this picture and about a dozen sitting in the far away trees to the left. And zooming in on the picture doesn't help either. Boo! I guess you either have to take my word for it or travel out to Desoto to see for yourself.

Half the park was still closed due to the flooding this past summer.

But the part we were able to be in was awesome!
It was a great way to spend the afternoon!
