Pumpkin Days

My grandson in CO sent these pics last week. They took their almost 2 year old to the local pumpkin patch. They are having their 2nd baby in Jan. 2012. They have decided to be surprised as to whether boy or girl.

The Big Day

It wasn't really a big day but seeing The Big Year yesterday inspired us to go on a bird sighting expedition today.  We headed south to a new wildlife preserve that recently opened.  It was a nice day with nice weather but not many birds were out and about.  We did manage to catch a few pics.  I was surprised to see the gators were still out. 

The first six pics were taken at the Pintail Wildlife Drive which is in the Cameron Prairie National Wildlife Refuge.  The last pic was taken last week at a Wetland Walkway.  This is all considered part of the Creole Nature Trail which circles the area where I live.

Clouds, Rainbows & Balloons

This has been a wonderful few weeks of looking at the sky in our little neighborhood in NM. I took all pictures from my front porch. We had some beautiful clouds and rainbows about 2-3 weeks ago and then this morning the hot air balloons from the Balloon Fiesta flew over.
