Easter was a good day, overall. We did our first Easter egg hunt for Olivia. :) Of course, with her being 2, we put the eggs in very conspicuous places, and had to point the eggs out to her, but it was still a blast watching her pick up the eggs. In some of them we put a few M&M's, and she'd want to open the eggs immediately, causing the candy to fall to the ground. LOL So we kept insisting she put them directly into a basket I was carrying, promising her we'd open them once we got back inside. She would bring several of the eggs to me, wanting me to open them, and I'd demand her to say "Please 闓闓 (kǎikǎi - open)", before I'd do it for her.
While we were laying down the eggs before that, though, my mom saw a baby bird in the grass. I guess it was a baby dove, I'm not sure. We thought we saw it's parents nearby, again, I'm not sure about that or where the nest was. It was alive and seemed to be OK, as much as it could be anyway, given that a wing was injured. I took it to the Humane Society down the road, knowing that with it being Easter Sunday there might not be anyone there. I knocked on the front door and no answer, so I went around to the far back, where they keep a medical clinic, and thankfully found someone. More than likely it will be sent to an emergency vet, and they had me sign a "statement of surrender", even though it's a wild animal. Hopefully the bird will be treated and sent back into the wild.
