Life unfolds ... some of it here. This blog began as a way to focus on the good things in the midst of a crisis and be a connection to friends and family when it seemed to take all of my time just to weather the storms. It seems to have transformed into a sanctuary of musing and inspiration. Feel free to join me!

This is part of an amazing activity this afternoon ... preparing to mow. Remember that GIGANTIC mushroom from last month? Well, this time, nature hasn't done the "HUGE" effect. It has done the "MULTIPLY" effect! THIRTY-FOUR MUSHROOMS IN A WEEK (we counted as we removed them before mowing) ... AND NOT ITSY BITSY ONES, EITHER! I just have to say wow.
OK ... so maybe it's embarrassing to have your mom and little sister hanging around when you're being a cool football player. I think this is the "MOM - You can put that camera AWAY look!"
We girls found a little bowlegged Yorkie to play with while the long line of guys did DRUG TESTING for sports. Can you believe that? Every kid from 7th grade on up!

I tried my hand at sports photography tonight. Amidst the buff guys with HUGE cameras, there am I. How do I get roped into these things? Oh, wait. I know. I'm about to marry a JOCK!
Little blondie looks on as her bus approaches for the first time. This year? A little nervous, but more excitement than fear ... and she did AWESOME! Maybe I'll get to know some parents this way. It seems to be a morning ritual for some. I don't know names yet, but Nice Neighbor Mom lives close to me. Coffee Cup Mom lives on the other side, and after day one she stayed there! Happy Smiley Mom lives on the opposite corner and seems fun ... coffee cup stays in smiley's yard. This is my new little morning world.
The athlete is still the shy one. Football is the new big adventure. It's tough, but I'm so proud of him! GO TIGERS ... whoo! whoo! whoo!
Isn't this sad? Not my little girl, MY CAMERA! It needs help. I think I need a new one so I can zoom ... otherwise this is what happens! Plus, I can take sports photos for the local paper (I'll let you know if that happens) ... so I may be joining my sports-minded soulmate in a little photo action!
Big brother is on the team ... can you find him? (This was cool ... I got to see my cousin here, even though her son wasn't playing in the scrimmage - he is on opposite nights.)
Grandpa and big brother watch as the sun sets on a wonderful family reunion and a happy little fisher-girl content to spend her day on the dock. (I have more reunion photos ... I'll have to put them online when I get a chance to transfer them from the laptop!)

Now this is what I call a VIEW! This is the location of some of the most tranquil thoughts and content moments I've had since childhood. This is MY kind of Vegas sightseeing!
My first souvenier of Vegas ... from a romantic dinner for 5! I have to laugh. There were only two of us that were romantic!
A week of photos in Vegas? Maybe it's a gamble, or maybe it's my lucky weekend! But I know one thing ... it's a sure bet to be fun with my favorite person by my side! (I'm so cheesy ... hehehe)
