About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Picnic in the Park

   Another cold day, but we decided to brave a picnic in the park.  It's Spring and whether it feels like it or not, we are going to act like it's warm!  While we were eating we were lucky enough to see a Great Blue Heron!  It was beautiful with it's long, graceful legs and sharp, pointed beak.  The girls tried to feed him some bread, but we found out later that frogs and fish are on the menu for these guys:   

   Mandy went exploring and discovered a Mommy duck sitting on her eggs.  I would have to say she was sitting on about 30 of them.  Dogs and other ducks kept scaring her away but she always returned to her nest.  We were amazed!  I couldn't resist taking these pictures, but I was quick about it as I knew those little ones needed their Mommy.  So sweet.  I hope the babies make it, although with 30 ducklings she certainly will have her hands full.:-)
