The kids asked me to come outside to watch them ride bikes this afternoon. Honestly, it's the first nice afternoon that we've had in a while that wasn't crowded over with homework. So, they played (in the dirt, instead of on bikes) and I grabbed my camera to try to catch a photo of this beautiful moth hovering around. The moth was pretty much an escape artist, but my flowers didn't fail me. They are always just as still as I need them to be... :)

I spent a little time this weekend with Amy and Shawn at Pineola Farms. Amy and I went to school together as kids and I'm just getting to know Shawn. We had fun talking about their upcoming wedding and about how we can't believe how O-L-D we are now. I think we are holding up pretty good. :) Doesn't Amy have the most gorgeous blue-green eyes? Enjoy this first look, y'all! To see all of the images from this session, click on this link...

Actually, it's Trouble Two and Trouble Three...
Ava, our adolescent hound dog, has the nickname 'Two,' and Lucy, our toddler mutt dog, has the nickname 'Three.' This simply refers to their placement in our home. Amber, our greyhound, is 'One,' though we hardly ever call her that.
So, today Two and Three decided to sneak out of our very finely fenced backyard for the third time this week. The second time was just this morning! Not to give the gorey details, but it was a close call that both arrived back safe at home. Ava nearly had a fatal encounter with a semi-truck. I think I'm still in shock... and they are both tired, but fine.
So, I took the camera out into the newly secured backyard and took some pictures. As you can see, Lucy, the brown one with the crooked lip, is showing no remorse. Ava looks a little more concerned. Blue, the cat, was just sitting there and looked cute. I couldn't resist. :)
Hopefully tomorrow they will be Good Two and Good Three...wishful thinking.
