Mark and Allan both had a few days off while the older girls were gone. We enjoyed spending the day at Potato Creek.
We took a picnic lunch and then went exploring in the woods, looking for bald eagles and, for the first time ever, let the kids play on the beach. It was a fun, and very tiring afternoon!
After releasing Audrey’s last batch of butterflies, we enjoyed following them around to see were they would land. Most flew into the sunny field, but some flew to the trees over the water.
We don’t often see sunsets like this. They are extra special when shared with friends.
Daddy loaned me his 75-300 mm lens this week. It has been fun trying to get pictures of our hummingbird. Hopefully, he will come back and pose for me again soon.
Another of my favorite flowers.
Her daddy got his momma to sleep like this.
The last few days have been very warm. Allan was trying to fix our blow up pool, but the patching kit was not working properly.
After being attacked with a water balloon and hearing the kids giggling about more water balloons, he located his first victim.
It has been a wonderful year for flowers!
Daddy put a bluebird nest in his yard. This is the first year that a bird family moved in! It was exciting to be able to visit the nursery yesterday and today.
