our challenge this week is to photograph pumpkins. well at this time of year, that's not a problem. we went to lowe's for some building supplies, and low and behold, there was a pumpkin display! well i always have my phone on me, so we placed bailey on the display and i got these shots of her. easy peasy.
when i woke up on monday morning, i thought it was friday. i was ready for the weekend even though one had just ended! so now that friday is finally here, i say what took you so long?!? have you ever had a week just drag on? what's up with that? happy friday y'all!
i was going through my camera roll and i came across this video of the girls playing together. it feels like a lifetime ago that bailey was this active - and feisty! it makes me sad to know those days are long gone but at the same time, it makes me smile watching her have so much fun only 11 months after we rescued her. enjoy.
bailey is working very hard on her balance. look what she did yesterday. she balanced on a football! it took a few tries, but she did it. good job bailey!
this last picture is aimed directly at cbs, who carried the broncos/browns game, and the reason this post is a part of the monday mischief blog hop. lemme 'splain. at the end of regulation, the score was tied at 23. ooh, overtime. not! instead of airing the overtime game, cbs went right into the packers/chargers game! what?!? what about the game we were watching? i couldn't find the game online, and i had to find out via twitter who won! pretty lousy, cbs. the least you could have done was tell us where we could tune in, to catch the end of the game instead of just leaving us hanging. btw, the broncos won 26/23 (yay!) but we didn't see it (boo!).
across from the street from the santa anita race track, in arcadia (california), is the los angeles county arboretum and botanic garden. the famous inhabitants of the arboretum are peafowl and as if the 127 acres isn't enough space for them, they fly out of the arboretum and you can often find them roaming the nearby neighborhoods. this was the perfect place to photograph animals for this week's photo challenge.
this guy's got it made in the shade.
we were in triple digits, so finding a shady spot to rest was a good idea.
"strange creatures, don't you think?"
you really have to be careful driving around these streets because they walk wherever they want! this young lady was walking alongside our car.
the highlight of our day was finding a mommy with her 3 babies!
