It's off to Camp!

As you can see, Daughter No. 1 is psyched about heading out to camp. She's loaded down with with sleeping bag, suitcase, magnifying glass, flashlight, etc. The 5th graders left at 8:00am. We are going to miss her!

Daughter No. 1 is off to Camp this morning with the 5th graders and will be absent for the next for three days. She's totally excited, but I think her sister, seen here, is a little distraught!

Green has overtaken our street, and it looks awesome! Most of the flowering trees have lost their bounty, but our Dogwood squeezed out a few flowers this year!

Driving home, I stopped by an old church in Indian Hill to shoot a few photos. Not sure of the history surrounding this neat place, but the light was great.
Tomorrow, it's off to Keenland for a litle horse betting!

Today was a beautiful, warm day as you can see. The girls couldn't resist having a mini pool party on the driveway, and invited several neighbors to the casual event. Courage was a good sport an fulfilled his role of "Watch Dog" for the duration of the party. The gala was hosted and catered by the dad!

Our house is surrounded by tons of trees, and every once in a while, we have the honor of sharing our home with the local wildlife. Daughter No. 2 saw this Pileated Woodpecker (or is that the presumed extinct Ivory Billed?) while bringing in the garbage cans. My camera lens does not do well in zoom mode, but there he is in all his glory!
See you again!

A typical day at the house! My wife loves wearing these glasses and hat. In fact, she would wear them all day if she could, but then she'd wind up single and alone!
Daughter No. 1 is quite amused at the entire scenario.
Anyway, we wanted to know what all the thrills were about her hat and glasses, so we all tried them on!

Photo of the day" April 7th

Today was a great spring day! And while I spent a majority of the day in front of my computer screen(yuck), it was 70 plus degrees, thunderstorms, lightning, tornados, the whole bit! This was the view around 4:00 EST today as the clouds rolled in overtaking the blue. It's still raining as I post this at 8:00pm.

Good night, and good luck!

OK, so getting green is taking a lot longer than I was hoping. This was taken this morning, and while there is definitely more green than last time, the trees are not doing their part! There's Courage waiting for me to pass! Speaking of Chessies, on the way to work I saw this huge, chisled Chessie head enjoying a ride in the car. Courage is chicken to stick his head out...maybe he needs more encouragement.

Sorry, took a couple days off this week!
Daughter No. 1 had her Disney Themed musical last night. Here she is palying the role of "Bert" the chimney sweep in a Mary Poppins theme. It was quite good!
I'll try and post a photo for today a bit later...

Took a trip to the Cincinnati Nature Venter with grandma and the girls today. The daffodils are slowly making their debut, but the earlier snow seems to have slowed their appearance and dessimated many. Normally, this area is flooded with flowers but I did manage to find a few worthy of a photo! Next week they should be at their peak.
Daylight savings starts tomorrow!
