|I thought this place looked inviting with the afghans, crab apple tree, and open gate.|
|I don't care for Sponge Bob but loved how odd he looked peeking out of the attic of a historic house.|
|Junk Art - hard to see unless you click on the picture and view it large.|
|This place with all the bikes for sale tickled my fancy.|
In July we went to the grad party of our babysitter, horseback riding trainer, and all around great friend Rachel. While there I found a cool caterpillar. We took it home and eventually, it turned into this.

|Hubs was cute. When I called him at work to tell him it had emerged from the chrysalis he asked me to not let it go until he came home.|
Earlier this summer, the girls and I all made footprint horses from a fabulous blog called Handprint Footprint Art.
|K's - the white blob is a flower.|
|C's - she was reading Black Beauty at the time.|
|Mine - the fly covers a paint blob mistake! :)|
Finally, I mentioned that our girls have been taking horseback riding lessons.

Yesterday when we were having riding lessons (I didn't have my camera with me - rats). We saw the funniest thing. First we noticed a group of about 15-20 Canada Geese fly over low gabbling away (nothing odd about that). A bit later, I heard some croaking squawks and a heron emerged from the trees to the north of the paddock followed by a second heron. They disappeared in the direction the geese went. Surprisingly, a third heron rose up from the trees and followed the first two.
I saw them circle in the distance a few times and suddenly the geese returned followed by the herons. I remarked to Rachel that "It looks like the herons are herding the geese." Rach made a good intuitive guess and suggested that the geese had intruded on some of the heron's territory.
It was an odd and rather amusing incident. I only wish I had had my camera with me.
