I was just playing around when I took this picture, but it turned out to be the only one for today. I still like it anyway, puffy too full of juice cheeks and all!
I'm Behind, I know
I've had a little issue with discipline in posting my pictures this year. It never helps that my computer chooses when I wants to let me post stuff to the blog and when it just wants to sit and "think about it" for minutes on end.
I'm working on it and really am taking photos this year. I appreciate that you stopped by for a visit even though my photos are behind and now apparently dated incorrectly on these most recent ones. I'll have to work on correcting that...

Believe it or not, at the kids' school (and our church) there was a rooster that showed up last May (2013) and had sort of become the campus mascot as he was ever present and always begging for a hand out. Then he up and disappeared around mid-March. No one knew where he had gone, but there was not evidence of his "demise" so we all hoped someone nice had taken him home and added him to their flock. Then today...
...there he was... crowing and attracting as much attention to himself as possible. It's like he was saying, "Here I am! Did ya miss me?"

Well this was supposed to be a pic of the steam rising off the fence in the morning after a night of nothing but rain. But apparently I was wrong when I thought I had a great capture of it by looking at my little camera screen. Ah well, but it is the only picture I took for the day.

Gotta love free movie night at the drive ins. The Lego Movie and Frozen were the features of the night. Yohn fell asleep during the Lego Movie and Elisha and I fell asleep during Frozen. But everyone else fared just fine.

In our neighborhood there are many squirrels that run around, jumping from tree to tree and eating the leftover food the school kids leave laying around. While I failed to take an actual photo today, I'm convinced with as many squirrels we see around here daily, I must have spotted one!

We went on an outing today with the kids (they had no school because it was Good Friday) and while they rode scooters and skates and generally ran around we set the timer on the camera and snapped a few pictures. I like this one the best.

Went for a walk today... Apparently the kids at track have caught wind that I am willing to walk them down to the school to use the bathroom and now I've become kinda popular. But these sweet smelling flowers along the way are at least a bonus!

Another day on the track field, another day of the impromptu nap.
Can I just brag on my two for a minute though? Today the kids both did amazing! It was his second time running the 800 (2 laps around the track) and her first and they both did fairly well. There are a few things to work on before the qualifying meet, but I expect they will be competitive in this area. I can't wait to see how far they'll go and am so proud of their accomplishments and the hard work they've put in to get to this point. AND the fact that they realize that running the longer distances does not make them inferior to the other kids, but just skilled in a different way.
Love them both so much!

Because the kids have track practice on Thursdays and they get home so very late, I either have to 1) have dinner prepared before we all leave the house, 2) don't leave and let their dad take them by himself or 3) go out to eat. Guess which option we chose tonight?

It was a beautiful day in San Francisco. We visited the SS Jeremiah O'Brien and spent nearly 2 1/2 hours exploring the large ship. This is us sitting on the deck with Alcatraz in the background.

This guy and his mate (or this gal and her mate) live in the trees in the field by the track the kids practice at. We see and hear them quite frequently each time we are there and they are always a delight to look at. Today I happened to snap this picture of one of them, although I later realized that my camera was on a funky setting and I didn't quite get the pic I was hoping for. Not sure if its a falcon or a hawk. Maybe I'll get a better photo with better details next time.
