Ewan's Special Surprise

While writing yesterday's blog, I noticed a group of photos I hadn't mentioned.  It all started a couple weeks ago.   My daughter and her husband had an event to attend.  It was an opportunity for my son in laws' parents to take our grandson to their house for a few days.  My husband was volunteering at the Berlin hospital that day, so he picked Ewan up from school and brought him to our house.  Then Beth and Wayne, his other grandparents, picked him up.  Ewan was being a very secretive for a four (almost 5) year old.  He was working on a surprise for us, but he wouldn't give us a clue to what it was.  This is a hint.

Ewan is working on the surprise he helped make for Nana and Papa.

All of them worked very hard.  Grandpa Wayne made the houses and Grandma Beth with Ewan decorated them.  We love them.  What a great surprise.  We have to find the perfect place in the woods for them.  Maybe we will have Ewan come out so he can participate in choosing the perfect locations, but first he will have to sign them.  He was practicing writing his initials last weekend or he can autograph the birdhouse any way he chooses.  Papa thinks we should keep one of them in the house so it lasts forever. 


Grandma painted the flowers.

Ewan painted a bird on the back.




I don't know what kind of bird this is, but if I see such a bird I will be calling the Green Lake Bird and Nature Club, that's for sure.  It would be a unique species.
