Winding down the holiday weekend...

it is so much fun to splash with little feet...
nice way to cool off in this Texas heat...


it is also niceto find unexpected treasures...
found this nest with 2 babies and an egg...

the father came back to check on them...
and it was a cardinal...
this is at our property in the country...


they made their nest in the Honey Locust tree...
it has built in protection....

I enjoyed watching hubby give daughter shooting lessons...

she's a pretty good shot...

I enjoyed watching my Mom shoot also...
they are brave gals...
(hubby must be also....)

he got to do some shooting also....
me I shoot with my camera...
here's a few of the shots I took today...






I hope you all had a great holiday weekend..
I know I did...now it's time to wind down...
to start a fast paced week...

The wildflowers are looking pretty. Fun to find the cardinal nest!
When we go out in the country, our kids enjoy doing a little shooting, too.

And those little feet are precious!
I may have to get a baby wading pool for this summer...Addison seems to love water!
Hugs,

Simply beautiful *shooting* with your camera!

Oh those baby Cardinals! And smart Mommy and Daddy Cardinal. To choose that place to nest. :-)

-sighhhhhhhhhhhhhh- You give me more shooting envy. -sighhhhhh- I know, you told me if I get down there, I can have lessons. (Did you ever tell hubby that? -grin-)

But I won't ever get to mosey-on-down that way, so he's safe. :-)

She-who-still-can't-make-my-preferred-pics-post. But I think its my issue and not Blogger, this time.
