Warm Hawaii sun (part 2).

Yesterday we took a trip out again and brought both boys with us this time.  Raptor really doesn't care for car rides but he's got to get used to it!  Here's Mika, cruising in the car as usual (you can see him in the tent), and Raptor...  not caring for the car ride as much. LOL

First we headed out to our soon-to-be new home.  It'll probably take roughly a year to renovate the house because it's old, so we have a LOT of work ahead of us.  We'll be staying in our condo until it's at least near completion, though.  

The boys got to spend a bit of time in the backyard basking in sunlight while the bf did most of the clean up on the back patio and I hung out on the couch, being sick.  Raptor really enjoyed the new toy I made for his travel cage.  I used a Mother Pluckin' Bird Toys stainless steel skewer as the base and added vine balls, yucca, balsa, other woods, and pacifiers (most toy parts came from Things for Wings) strung on green Paulie Rope - colored to go with his green themed travel cage.  Lots of places to forage for treats!  He really enjoyed this toy so that makes me very happy.  :)

Must get to the almonds!!
Foraging toy - I'm quite happy with how it turned out!  :)

After spending most of the day at that house, we went to my parents house for dinner.  The boys got to spend the rest of the day out in the backyard, watching the sun set.  The boys chattered much more than usual...  maybe they couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the sunset was.  ;) 

While we all had an awesome dinner, the boys were served with apple, broccoli, sugar snap peas, baby carrots, bird bread with LOTS of fruits and veggies mixed in, and pellets.  Raptor ate some of his veggies and, as usual, Mika only ate the seeds out of his bird bread.  :P  Ungrateful birds, I tell ya.   LOL

  1. You MADE that toy?! It's beautiful!!!

  2. Aw, thanks. It's something I just whipped up in about 5-10 minutes but, funny enough, my favorite that I've made so far. :)

  3. Love the foraging toy! I looks awesome!
    That is also quite the dinner plate they got, looked great!

  4. Thanks! And yeah, most of that dinner didn't get touched. :P

  5. I enjoyed reading this post, Maya, and looking at your pretty travel cages :)
