Double Post.. Outdoor Wed & Target Birds on Holiday

Welcome to A Double Post Wednesday..
Outdoor Wednesday
Target Birds On Holiday

Today is Target Birds On Holiday
Hosted by: The Talented & Witty Susan

It's also Outdoor Wednesday
A Southern Daydreamer
Hosted By: The Always Gracious Susan

First I need to warn you..
because Dale is a tad bit self conscious.
Just as Dale an Danielle set out
on their lil adventure..
An excited Dale jumped up
on the porch railing ..
started shaking his tail feather and
lost his footing
and fell on the rocks below.

All is well..
We scooped him up
put his tail on ice
and off to the ER
we went.
As you can see below..
Dale had the best Doctors
in town working on him.

Good as New!
Back to doing tricks again.

The first time Danielle saw and fell in love
with Dale he was riding
his high wheel bicycle.
So, the
first thing he wanted to do
on their vacation was
impress his love by
taking a lil stroll across the
very same rocks
where he broke his tail feather.
If you look closely..
she's rolling her eyes
and muttering something about
macho man.

After finishing the bike trail..
with no other injuries..
they headed off to get
washed up for dinner.
For dinner Dale & Danielle dined
at the
Red Barn Inn..
Where they feasted on
Black oil sunflower seeds,
Safflower seeds and Millet.

After dinner they met up
with their close friends
Roxie & Rex
for a lil dessert treat.

On Saturday morning
Dale and Danielle went out
scouting for the perfect nesting spot.
This Bradford Pear Tree
was spacious and green.. but
wasn't quite right.

Next they checked out this coconut husk
hanging basket..
It wasn't much for shelter..
but they enjoyed swinging in the breeze.

On to the next stop..
A Bluebird Box.
It was occupied
so they quickly left without
disturbing the Momma.

A quick snack
at the Goldfinch feeder..

Checking out Jeff's handy work
on the new fence he just finished putting up.
Great job Jeff!

Candle light dinner reservations for 2
at the Green Hightop.

Being the romantic that he is..
Dale gifted his wife with
a Magenta Pearl Necklace.
In appreciation of her new gift..
Danielle gave a bashful Dale a
lil sugah.

On Sunday morning
both Dale and Danielle headed over to Church.
Where they rejoiced in fellowship
and celebrated the resurrection
of our glorious Jesus.

Afterwards they headed over to visit
another friend Greenleigh
who is also expecting.
As Greenleigh and Danielle
chatted about pregnancy Dale
checked out the foundation
of Greenleigh's nest.

Once back home..
Dale surprised Danielle with
a nest he had built while
she was sleeping.
Danielle had a lil surprise of her own..
She was in labor..

Their first arrival...
Welcome to the World
Little Della.

Dale, Danielle and Lil Della
are all anxiously awaiting the
hatching of the
rest of the clan.

Soon there'll be enough Target Birds
for tablescaping
for everyone in Blogland.

Thank you for taking the time to visit
Dale & Danielle's Adventure..
We certainly hope you enjoyed your time here.
Make sure you stop by and visit all the others
participating today.
Thanks to both
for hosting these fun events.

Thank You For Visiting
Have A Blessed Day,
