My New Toy

My favorite man-in-brown came by yesterday and delivered my birthday present from my mom!! Wooohoooo!! Isn't it beautiful???

I had to break it out and start playing with it right away... oh my... so much fun! I can be clear across the yard and get such nice sharp close-ups!! Here are Beth and Kyle working up the nerve to pick up a toad they found.


Here is the toad.

The dirt road curving by our house.


Spike looking at something intently.

The birdhouse way up in one of our really tall trees.

Kyle's dumptruck that caught my eye through the lens.

The morning view from our back deck. I love when we wake up to a foggy morning... it just feels so good on my face! I also love seeing the sun peeking out behind the fog over the mountains.

We have a couple of brand new neighbors I thought I would show you. This little guy is only a couple of days old. His mama didn't really want his picture taken, so she ushered him off pretty quickly.
This little guy is about two weeks old. Isn't he pretty? I was taking his picture, and one of the neighbors down that dirt road drove by. She saw me shooting away (fully extended, that new lens attached to my camera is nearly a foot long) and stopped to tell me her horse is pregnant, and asked if I would like to come take pictures of it when it is born in a week or so. I cannot wait! I am sending happy labor vibes to my equine neighbor... LOL

I am looking forward to getting some candid portraits of the kids now. I will share more photos very soon, I am sure! Have a nice weekend! Thank you Mom!!!! I love ya!
