Random Pictures

I took this photo at the scenic overlook. The kids said it looks like God is shining down.

A sheet tent that I made for the kids to play in.

Here's me and my sister, Trish.

My little princess, Emily.

What is This????

Does anyone have any idea of what this is? It's all over this oak tree. It's kind of pretty I think. It must be some sort of parasite or something.

The Family Piano

Recently, my parents got rid of our old piano. I had to take some pictures of it before it was gone forever. :) We have so many great memories of it from growing up. Our family used to gather around it and sing many songs while Mom played. We would entertain company, practice for Church, or just have some quality family time singing together. It was taking up too much space in my parent's house and no one every really plays it any more. So, I can understand why they wanted to get rid of it. I'm thankful though for all the great memories it provided for our family.

Local Wildlife

We saw this Momma deer with 5 spotted fawns! I think she must have adopted some of them. There are two nursing on her and 3 to the left of her. 2 are behind the tree branches, but you can see them if you look closely.

I thought these bugs were kind of cute. They were on the milkweed in our backyard.

I don't know what kind of insect this is, but thought it was interesting.

A dragonfly

This is our chicken up in the pine tree. I don't know what made her decide to go up there.

A hognose snake. It looks kind of like a cobra.
