Avocado. {365 - Day 78}

We picked the wrong day to go to the Carolina Raptor Center.  Grandma and Grandpa were still visiting, so we thought we'd run up there to show them one of our favorite attractions before they went home.  The clear sky turned gray and it started drizzling as we got there.  Boo.  Being the troopers we are, we decided to stay, braving the rain to see some amazing birds.  The downside of rain is that I didn't take out my fancy camera since it is not really happy about getting wet, so no pictures.  But while we were there, we bought a family membership so we'll return very soon.  If you haven't visited yet, add it to your list.  You can get up close and personal with a chatty raven, a creepy vulture, or a majestic bald eagle.  The center is a rehabilitation facility that releases 75% of their raptors back into the wild.  Those that cannot be released due to injury have a permanent home at the Center, helping to educate people about their breed and how humans can have a positive impact on their environment.

After the visit, the Grandparents headed home, and Sarah Beth headed off to dreamland for a nap.  We carried her off to bed and decided to take nap ourselves.  Our schedule, as a result, is all screwed up today.  SB woke up around 4:30 and had some avocado as her snack.

My guest photographer of the day, husband Kurt, took this shot.  We are crazy about avocados in this house and probably eat at least one per day.  Here she is enjoying her treat along with a shaker of cilantro for added flavor.

Due to the nap, Sarah Beth is still wide awake. Kurt and I haven't had dinner yet.  It's 9:30.  I'm hoping she gets sleepy soon and we can polish off the leftover corned beef and cabbage in front of the TV with a little wine.  Fingers crossed!
