Over the course of the two weeks while we were on vacation, we had a number of little furry and not so furry visitors. The kids loved it and I enjoyed taking some pictures of all the little animals. The first night we had a campfire, a large racoon emerged from the trees and tried to sit with us.
James yelled at him and he scurried into the bushes only to reappear 2 minutes later with a "What?!" look on his face. This continued for 30 minutes until we were finally able to make it clear that he wasn't roasting marshmellows with us. The kids were upset that we wouldn't feed him but it gave us the opportunity to explain how feeding wild animals is bad for both us and for the wild animal. Although I had wanted to get a picture of him, he never appeared again at our campfire.
So here are a few of the pictures that I took of my furry and feathered friends.
The Wild Rabbit, we ended up calling him Mr. Bunny and he was there every morning:
The Chipmunk, this little guy loved to come up onto the deck and see if he could beg some crumbs from me:
The Blue Jays:
