This took me back

While Amanda was here visiting she decided to take Duke for a little walk which of course made Duke a very happy dog.

They made Duke's ritual stop at that tree and Amanda found something.
I looked at this picture and just had to smile. She may be all grown up now but she still brings her mom treasures.

Yep, I'm still smiling over this one. Stuff like this makes being a mom all worth it.

Looks like a robins nest. Its funny how they still remind us when they were young and always listened to you.It is nice to have those little reminders.

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! COOL ... but it means that the birds nest fell down ... just hope after they had their little birdies. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Lin said...

Look how perfect it is!! Now that is a find! Good Amanda. Good Duke. :)

BeadedTail said...

That nest is big and in great shape! Hope the birdies made it out before it fell out of the tree.

Duke looks so happy in the photo of him coming towards you!

Anny said...

Duke sure is a contented fella.. lookit the face when he is coming to you :)

that's a pretty neat nest.. hope them birdies already left the nest before it fell.

Sandee said...

Yep sometimes they just keep bringing home stuff long after they are grown. How fun, and it making you smile was a double plus.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

Roschelle said...

Awww...a nest from the little girl who grew up and left the nest.

whatcha gonna put in this one :)

Grace said...

It wasn't till I read Roschelle's comment that it dawned on me that you will probably make a charming art work out of that nest! (In the second pic I thought he had found a turtle! That would have been cool!)

Jean said...

I am all smiles since I LOVE bird nests. You are lucky to have a daughter and furbaby who find such fine gifts from Nature!:-D)

June Zach (Fledgling Blogger) said...

Bird's nest! That is one cool thing! :D

Marg said...

That really is a perfect bird's nest. Kids are kind of like cats, they are always bringing you treasures and making you smile. That is a great picture of Amanda and Duke coming towards you. Hope you have a super fine day.

Daisy said...

Duke looks so happy!

Sheri said...

They may grow in size but they are still our little girls.

Duke does look like a happy dog!

FishHawk said...

Hmm, the daughter who flew the coop holding an empty nest... Yep, there's a connection there somewhere--I just know it! No, don't help me. I'll get it............................................................................................................................. Okay, could you ask Duke to give me a hint?

Catherine said...

I think it's so important that we all keep a little bit of our 'youth' inside us ~ no matter our age! :) Adorable nest!

Happy Day!
xo Catherine

Russ said...

Yes they do grow up. But they will always be your baby.

Duni said...

What a lovely little nest! I'm sure you have plenty of ideas what to do with it :)
This reminds me of when I used to bring back stuff for my mom too.

Sharkbytes said...

Nice nest! Fun day with Amanda.

Bossy Betty said...

Awwww, Mom! Your girl knows you and what you will love!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Ah, it's the little things that mean the most. said...

What a simply perfect nest...I am always amazed at how birds manage to make them so perfect....will you save it and make a bonnet next Easter??? I think Duke would look fine in a bonnet!!!

Ann said...

out on the prairie I don't remember a time when they ALWAYS listened to

Sugar I'm hoping so too

Lin it was in very good shape.

Beaded tail me too. and Duke, he always looks happy :)

Anny he knows how to have a good time no matter what

Sandee gotta love anything that can make you smile

Roschelle LOL how about that

Grace a turtle would have been cool. Believe it or not I hadn't thought to use the nest in a craft project. Now I need to do some

Jean it was a wonderful find.

Junezach sure was

marg you're right although the cats I used to have would bring me things that I didn't necessarily care to have :)

Daisy yes he does

sheri always

fishhawk the only think that Duke is concerned with is who's taking him for a walk

catherine I agree, must stay in touch with our inner child, it's what keeps us going

russ you are so right

duni actually until reading the comments here I hadn't thought of using it for anything.

sharkbytes it's funny how when she was living at home there weren't so many fun days, now they're all good

bossy betty yep she sure does

poetic shutterbug you are so right, this is worth more than anything that could be bought in a store

allotments4you I can just see duke with a birds nest bonnet on his It is amazing how they make these nests, I wish I could see the whole construction process in action.

LDH said...

awww.... it's those little things that can mean so much to a mom :)

Ann said...

LDH, you are so right. Those things are worth their weight in gold and then some.
