In Colorado we spend time exploring and visiting relatives. We also spend a lot of time working. This year Mark helped paint the house and pulled a lot of cactus!
After working all morning, Mark was still enjoying being outside and working hard!
This was a complete double rainbow!
Audrey and Megan had fun releasing eight Monarchs this evening. We still have some chrysalises and a few caterpillars, but this year’s Monarch season is almost finished for Audrey.
This is the driveway to “Grandma’s house” one beautiful evening.
The neighbors gave the kids a bunch of windfall apples to make applesauce with.
It sounded like Audrey discovered a worm and asked Megan if she wanted it sauteed in onions. Megan love the idea and wrote our lunch menu for today.
Relaxing outside and watching the hummingbirds is a favorite activity of mine. For most of this summer, we have not had many birds visit. I suspect a neighbor’s feeder is preferred! However, yesterday we had a lot of migrating hummers stop at our feeder.
Megan brought me a beautiful wild flower bouquet. Andrea taught her how to tie a grass bow around it to make it even prettier.
