And now for your daily dose of squeeeeeee!!!

Brian was out cleaning up along our property line, and he came in insisting that we all had to come see, right away!

So we did.  And what did we see?

A nest of baby bunnies!!!  In our own backyard!  Actually, this was a little bit behind our property line.  Brian said he was mowing and heard a little squealing noise, so he stopped to look to see what it was.  And baby bunnies!!!  We couldn’t get an accurate count.  We figure maybe four or five of them in there, and they were old enough to have their eyes open.  We covered the nest back up and let them be.  We’re watching to see if mama comes back.

Thing Two immortalized the moment on paper:

That’s Dad pushing the mower, Rhys looking on, the nest of baby bunnies, and for reasons I can’t fathom, an Easter egg hovering in mid-air above the mower.  Brian commented that the drawing made it look like he was about to run over the baby bunnies with the mower.  We promise, no baby bunnies were harmed in the making of this picture!

Sometimes it’s enough just to stop and be amazed at the miraculous things around us.

  1. How wonderful! What a great experience for your kid!
    We don’t have bunnies here, except for the ones that you can get from pet shops. A couple of years ago, my son was gifted with a pair of bunnies but they died, unfortunately . I think our weather here is a bit too hot for bunnies. My son was crushed and he cried for days. :(

    Oh, no! :( It gets pretty warm here, too, but apparently not too warm for bunnies. I went out today to see if I could find the nest. I couldn’t, but I might have been looking in the wrong spot. We’ll be keeping an eye out for bunnies around (and Brian said he might think they were adorable now, but not so much if they get into our garden! LOL).
