We had so much fun with the nest. I think the adults were more playful than the children. A few young women were dressed up as birds and sat in the nest. Hilarious!

Just thinking of breakfast and spotted these yummy looking rolls. Love where the corners of the cloths meet, the red line and then a little eye.
