Thank Heaven For Little Boys!

Cute even when he's mad.

Waltzing with the Halloween Bat.

Such a big help!

A little under the weather.

Flowers and Peppers

I decided I needed to take some more pictures of my flowers.

This one is actually at the edge of my neighbors yard. Not sure what kind it is but I love it!

I have 9 rosebushes at my house and they are all starting to bloom.

Today I also planted a jalepeno pepper and a hot yellow banana pepper.

Can't wait to whip up some salsa and/or pico de gallo!

Family Photo

Here is a cute family photo from our Eagle Crest trip. My daughter and I are all matchy matchy!

Eagle Crest Trip

We took a little trip with my husband's family to Eagle Crest in Central Oregon. It is just heavenly over there! I'm feeling lazy so these photos are in no particular order.

This is at the park in Bend.

Spectacular mountain views!

A little game of putt-putt.

Another shot at the park.

The boy is trying to look like the monkey on his hat! Silly Monkey!

These deer let us get within a few feet and take some photos.

There were so many robins and other beautiful brightly colored birds over there.

The girl and I got to do a little riding.

Now, that just isn't nice!

We had a really great time! We also swam a little and biked a little.
This is my favorite part of the state. If you ever get a chance, I would highly recommend visiting Central Oregon. It's magnificent!

Flowers In My Yard

Here is what going on around my yard right now!

I have never seen a daisy quite like this before. I told that slug to put away his skateboard when he was finished riding it. He's worse than my kids!!

Here are some new lovelies I can't wait to put in.

These are happy little flowers too.

Gerbera Daisies are one of my most favorite.

These are so wild! They came up by themselves and they are now almost taller than me!
Maybe Julia will know!

My Nasturtiums have a way to go.

These grow like weeds around my yard! I don't mind a bit.

I can smell the lilacs on the air when I go out my door.

A lovely Award

I wanted to thank Jessica so much for giving me this Lovely Blog Award! Thanks so much for thinking of me!

I have the hardest time narrowing down blogs to pass this on to. They are all so wonderful!

I would like to pass this award on to my Mom. I know I need to come up with 14 more! I will have to think!

Silver Creek Falls Trip- We Heart Art Contest

We took a little trip to Silver Creek Falls today.

The girl told me that this plant was getting ready to fling it's seeds!

The boy was in charge of the map.

A good time was had by all!

I thought I would enter my photos into the We Heart Art Contest put together by Three Bay B Chicks, I'm Living Proof That God Has a Sense of Humor and Domestically Challenged. You should go check it out and join in the fun!
