Baby Squirrels playing outside my window

We have a mama squirrel with four babies living in the tree in our front yard. They are so cute! I had to share this video I took of the babies playing and jumping for joy. Although mama's not in the video, she was watching them the whole time.

Right now they are about half the size as an adult. Cloud does not go into the front yard, so they are safe from him.

Those little tree rats... uhhh, I mean baby squirrels, are mighty tempting!

Of course mom thinks they are cute.

Thanks for taking the time to film and post this. It's really cute to see how playful they are. That one is a real Mexican jumping bean!
