MUM'S GONE OUT! Come on you lot!!!

Just thought you may like to see some more pictures of our little family :) They almost gave me heart failure last night, when they all decided to come out of the nest and have a wander around!
I was worried because their mum had decided to go off into a neighbour's garden at the time, so she wasn't around to look out for them!! There are five of them altogether, the largest being about the size of a tennis ball!! I guess that one was at the front of the queue at milk time! :)
Aren't they just so adorable? You will be happy to know(as i was!!) that they all made it safely back to the nest, and were all snuggled up safe and warm when Andy checked on them this morning!
They should be with us for another four weeks or so, before they leave the nest permanently, but we are hoping to mark them before they go, then we will know if they return at a later date!!
I am not so good at taking photo's (!) but i hope you enjoy the story so far! :) :)

Hoggy Hugs!
