Anything with wings is entertaining. With most birds spending their summer up north, I have to turn to other winged creatures for my fun. This guy kept clinging to our wall, so I took a few pics. In the last pic this butterfly reminds me of Robin Williams, can you guess why? (hint: you might have to blow up the pic to see the resemblance).
You know it's a typical hot August day when you look out over your yard at noon and see swarms of dragonflies. I don't know what they find appealing about the near 100 degree temperature and near 100% humidity. They are masters of the noon day lawn and I say they are welcome to it; I will come out later with the fireflies when the temperature is much cooler. These guys must know what they are doing because they have been around a lot longer than man; in fact, this Order of insect (Odonata) with its nearly 5000 species are some of the most ancient insects on earth.

I had the opportunity to go with Tabitha and Brayden to Brayden's swim lessons yesterday. I am so glad they are starting with him young. He doesn't really seem to know what is going on, but he is not afraid of the water and it is suprising how well he will instinctively do things like kick his feet or hold on to the board. Here are a few pictures at the pool.
Brayden's swim buddy Owen seemed happy just to lay back and relax. It was so cute to see him just chillin' out!

29 years today!. I can not imagine my world without Troy in it. I hope to spend many more years together. I created this show a few years back and thought I would share it to remind him of our journey. Some of the pictures are old and hopefully they will show up okay. I love you Troy, you are my world!
