It was a beautiful morning so i decided to go for a bike ride (this is the same forest as yesterday's picture, notice the orange construction fence on the right where they started to clear cut trees). That's my lovely Slimer horn from the days when i work at McD's, over 20 years ago...can't believe i just admitted that! :)
Buddy made a new friend on our walk today. We ended up walking all the way around this pond through that beautiful forest with his new friend. Some of you may remember the forest from my pictures last year...it's supposed to be chopped down (and part of it now is) but local community groups have been successful in halting it for now
We keep finding new piles of dirt on our rock garden in the mornings and have no idea where it's coming from. We're assuming it's an animal (notice how Buddy is sniffing one of the piles) but we don't know what they're doing....i don't see any holes in the rock garden or my flower garden at the end of the path
today was "walk to school day" at the kids' school. They encourage the kids to walk/bike then when they get to school there's a firetruck, treats and a bunch of other stuff going on.
I was pretty proud of myself...when i took my camera out to take a picture, my daughter happened to bike by with her friend
My son had soccer practice at school at 7:15am so we were up bright and early...not easy for me, i am not a morning person! The sun had just barely come up and there was a fog on the field. Luckily the rain stopped so the boys didn't get soaked
this morning: My daughter helped me with my Mini sessions, it was so nice to have an extra set of hands! Here we are waiting for the first group to show up...it was so unbelievably cold (hence the mitts) but at least the rain held off and I didn't have to fight with the sun
