Our Oldest Son Turns 29

People say time flies when you're having fun...that must be true because I sure don't know how this little boy became a young man, then a husband with a lovely and caring wife over night.
This is one of my favorite pictures of Scott.  It was taken when he was 16-17 years old while he was staffing at Camp Del Webb in Utah that summer.  He spent 2 summers on staff there teaching Scouts to climb and rappel.
He adopted Roxy (RockStar) shortly after college, she's still hanging with him along with 2 others dogs. 
Always an outdoor loving guy, he and Christy were married in Valley of Fire State Park, NV.
I'm so glad he enjoys spending time with us.  He traveled to Bentonville AR for the Sam's Club National BBQ Tour finals with us.  He has many of the same passions as his dad and I.
We're so proud of the man he has become.  
Happy birthday Scott!

Nest Update

It's been three weeks today since there were 4 eggs in the nest.  Momma bird has been very diligent and dedicated sitting on and turning her eggs.  Another bird has been bringing her food.  I've only see her leave to get water and I what I assume is to stretch just a bit.
We've not been using that door, the steps are roped off, no one is near the nest.  But yesterday afternoon I think she abandoned her eggs.  She wasn't there this morning either.  :(
I've seen a bird come up and check the nest then fly away a few times.  This makes me sad.  A Google search says sparrow eggs hatch in 12-17 days depending on which site you read.  It's been 21 days.   I think I'll wait a couple more days but then I think I will remove the wreath...and the nest.  I was hoping for baby birds. :(
