Birdwatching - A Photostory

Hi everyone!
Yesterday, I took these pictures for this photostory. I hope you enjoy!:D
"Thank you everyone for joining me on my pursuit for adventure!" Isabelle began.
It was a chilly morning and as soon as Isabelle's feet had hit the ground, she knew she wanted to go out and do something exciting.
"Birdwatching is your idea of adventure?" Elizabeth asked with her usual haughty tone.
"You never know what can spark an adventure. Have you ever read a book? Their adventures can start with pretty crazy things."
"That's fine, but why did you make us wear these historical outfits?" Cecile asked, gesturing to the pink fluffy dress she was wearing. 
"I thought that it would help it seem more fun!" Isabelle exclaimed and smiled. "Okay, let's go birdwatching!" 
Silently, the three girls looked around at the trees, searching for a bird.
"Are there birds even here anymore? Don't they fly south for the winter?" Cecile asked.
"There are still birds but keep your voice down. You could scare them away," Isabelle replied and gazed into a tree. 
"Has anyone else noticed all of these huge spider webs?" Elizabeth asked, her eyes wide and darting. 
"Liz, I said quiet!" Isabelle snapped, her voice lowered.
The trio continued waiting for any birds to show up and, after an hour, Cecile began to fidget. She was used to real adventures or active activities, but all of this waiting for nothing was making her restless. And Isabelle's soft murmurs of- 'Is that a bird?' 'I think I see something!' and 'Maybe that's a bird?' didn't help.
But she continued to look, hopeful that if they found a bird, they could go play a game. 
"Ooh, maybe that's a bird!" Isabelle whispered. Again. She raised her binoculars to check a tree branch, when Cecile cut in. 
"Come on, Izzy. There aren't any birds out today. How about we go play tag or hide-and-go-seek. That's still fun and outdoorsy!" Cecile said and lowered Isabelle's binoculars. 
"Wait! Is that a bird?" Isabelle pointed into the bush and Cecile sighed as she glimpsed a scaly tail fly across the dirt. 
"IT'S NOT A BIRD! IT'S A LIZARD!" Elizabeth shouted. 
"I SAID SHUSH!" Isabelle barked, then lowered her voice as she realized she had broken her own rule. "Come on guys, what books have you read where they go play tag and an adventure occurs?"
"Can we please just do something interesting," Elizabeth murmured and turned away from Isabelle.
"Just a few more minutes, Cece, Elizabeth, please," Isabelle bit her lip as Cecile sighed again. A slight buzzing hissed through the air and Isabelle swatted a fly away.
"I guess we could watch for a few more minutes, then we can play-" Cecile's compromise was cut short by Elizabeth's flailing and screaming as she batted away the fly and kept shouting- "BEE!!! BEE!!!" 
Elizabeth jumped off the ledge and darted across the lawn, hands waving as she kept going on her rampage. 
Cecile grinned and tapped Isabelle's shoulder. "Okay, never mind! Tag you're it!" Cecile raced away until Isabelle couldn't see her. 
"But guys! The birds..." Isabelle muttered something underneath her breath as she glowered at her sisters. 
"I think I have had enough 'adventure time' for the rest of the year. I'm going inside."

I hope you enjoyed the post!:D
