be there with bells on!

I just spent three lovely days with my husband.  Each moment I am with him is blog worthy...there was one particular moment though that stands out in my mind.  
We were at the sculpture gardens and one of the sculptures had a hanging balanced platform that we discovered was a nice resting spot.  I layed on my back and watched the sky.  It was lovely.  The day was lovely, the moment was lovely and before we knew it there were bells chiming...a church near by was marking some sort of a special occasion because it wasn't just a little bell chiming, it went on for a good 15 minutes, maybe longer.  
All of a sudden a robin swooshed in to where we were and landed on the sculpture above our heads and in a spot I hadn't looked very closely at there was a nest with 4 baby birds.  When mama robin swooped in with a worm they went crazy chirping and sticking their little beeks out.  So sweet.  Not very pretty birds but still amazing.
Eventually we noticed that there were several small crowds of people wanting to experience the sculpture too so we moved on.  But I did snap a couple pictures with my cell phone.  
The first one just shows the top of the sculpture and the beautiful sky.  The second one is of my handsome husband.

I bet the chimes were from the Basilica of St. Mary's its right down the street from the sculpture gardens!

I'm back after a long absence. I see you were able to wait the one week before the wedding. Took a look at older posts and shots of the wedding and you online wedding book. I didn't know how you met. Pretty neat. Congratulations! You both look very happy.
