A Few Recent Pics

Summer is sure going fast! And its a blast too. I wonder if I should try to clean my house, but in the Alaskan sun, I'm all about the "fun" before the "done"!! (I do try to clean, but its sometimes at crazy hours of the night..)

Just a few random pics to share, don't have my thoughts organized or my pictures either..hee hee.

I love this one of my handsome hubby! I think its kind of neat how you can see our logo through his sunglasses from the front of his cap.
My girls at the Alaska Zoo. We flew up to Anchorage for the day to have some family fun and meet with some friends.
This bud's for you! Ha ha.

I call this picture "The Little Lawn Mower". We often just turn him loose like a big dog, and he stays close to home. Especially with all that GREEN stuff for him to munch. You cannot see it in the picture, but the other horses are giving him a terrible glare from over the gate.

My niece came down from Anchorage and stayed with us for a few days, and this is her adorable baby girl, Lilah. Lilah BEAN, if you are in the know. She is a character, kept us in stitches, and had a ball with all of our critters. Here she is meeting Sparrow.

Still can't stop taking pics of the flowers in my yard. What can I say, I'm a total flower NUT, and I just get so much pleasure out of having these bursts of color at my fingertips.

My African Daisies, right out my door. They look at me so cheerfully each morning, but get a case of the grumpies if we get afternoon showers, and close right up. Fickle little guys, aren't they?

This picture is from the 1940's......
Not really! Its from a few weeks ago, but I could not resist playing with it to make it look a bit more old-fashioned. I think it was all those bicycles that lent themselves to the vintage feel. I totally love photo-editing!!! Its addicting and you cannot stop me. I tried the 12 step program but I got to step one, and took a break to do some photo editing. LOL.
Anyway, a few of these cutie pie girls are mine, but I'd claim them all if you let me. We get to spend lots of time with them, and they are all gems. Gems on wheels!

Your pictures are beautiful. We took a cruise to Alaska and I've been dying to return and explore your great state some more. It's so amazing and we just had a glimpse of it on our cruise. Thanks for visiting my blog.
