Zoo Day!

Ok, so I know I said one main photo post a week.....but I had to share our trip to the zoo. ^-^

The tigers were not happy with each other today and though I didn't get a photo of them sparring this guy was pacing quite a while.

I've always loved these birds, I'm not sure why. Perhaps its our taste in hair color or style.....^-~

Hubb says this photo really speaks, that it's sad looking. I don't know, it's just a very pretty elephant to me.(She actually has a bit of a smile to me, mischievous gal!) But I can see where he's coming from I guess.

The obligatory artsy shot. *chuckles*
I took this one in action mode so they weren't total blurs, but I really want to go shoot them when they aren't moving. I've always loved carousels and the fact that this one is a restored historical one makes it even more special.
There were a ton more. I took a total of 165 photos today, lol. I'm a snap happy momma ^-^ I got some of the boys, just haven't edited them yet.

For now, that was our trip!

*Oh and um, don't steal my photos, lol. You want to use them, contact me and ask. I'm usually more than happy, I just don't like theft. I mean who does.*

Picture day!

He he, I'm bad about this, so I thought I'd just share everything (ok, well a sample because I take a ton of pictures) that I downloaded from my camera today.

Perhaps I'll make it a weekly thing.

Anywho, on with the pictures ^-^

My azaleas have bloomed and they are always such a lovely watermelon color. This year the leaves are mostly a bright green and so it made a fun combo.

Two years ago I transplanted some pretty burgundy iris's that were growing under a bush in our yard. I also planted some purple ones as well as a white one that year. The burgundy one has bloomed and I'm happily waiting on the other colors to show. ^-^ The purple have budded. The white may not have survived. *It was a second time transplant*
I'm pretty sure I shared my happiness over making my own donuts recently, if not, let me tell you, I love making them ^-^ It's quick, no where near the sugar/fried content and yummy!

Ok, so they are donut holes but they are still donuts!

My cat (Thing One) actually likes people unlike her brother who only likes the lady across the street who likes to feed him. She has her days but most of the time she follows us around the yard.

The boys and I picked up something fun at the store today.
They are toys! Funky funny moving sushi. lol. They are little wind up sushi in different forms.

I may have to go back to get the rest of the types. he he.

And now for the boys themselves ^-^

Kai went off on his own while Mom and I had our garage sale last weekend. He walked over to her front steps and sat for a bit.

Madd wanted to stay out with us the whole time and ended up in a coat of my moms. We were laughing that he looked like a little thug when he's really the farthest from one.
The boys had Popsicles while we spent some warm afternoon outside time and it was interesting to see how they ate them. Madd dove right in and started biting his, K didn't, he's a savor it guy.
So thats my picture scramble for the week. ^-^ Hope you enjoyed!

Ah Cooking.

So I love to cook. And it should be no surprise that I like to watch the Food Network in the evenings. Most of my other tv watching time is with the boys and that consists of Disney movies and cartoons.

One of the things about turning the tv on in the mornings is that I always click over to to a channel I watch to keep the boys from getting upset when one of their shows is just going off. (We wake up at different times and sometimes I don't watch tv in the evenings.)

This morning I turned the tv on and I had left the food network on from last night. Jamie Oliver was cooking up some pumpkin and it caught my eye. My oldest didn't automatically say "Mommy change the channel" so I left it without scanning the guide. The commercial came and my kiddo was still hooked! He didn't ask to change and he actually asked if the guy was coming back. ^=^

I'm thrilled. So we watched Jamie cook up some different types of food using squash and pumpkins. Then when it was over I was expecting to be asked to switch to cartoons.....but no! He wanted to watch what ever came up next. He said, can we watch that lady? (there was an ad for the show coming up next.)

She was doing a remake on some fast foods and one of the things was a sundae, so now he's making me sundaes. he he.

I think I could get used to this ^-~
