bailey and a praying mantis

bailey had quite the encounter yesterday. she found a praying mantis in our backyard! she was fascinated by it. i wanted to share her experience with y'all...


so i took a video!
(no insects were harmed in the making of this video.)



i think the praying mantis is such a strange looking creature, don’t you? want a closer look?

pop! goes the weasel

we like to put bailey into fun situations just to see how she’ll react. well really, i’ve got an ulterior motive because i’m hoping to get some good shots out of it. but it’s a win win; she has fun and i get a blog post. this weekend we put her into her toy box.


a penny for a spool of thread,
a penny for a needle,
that’s the way the money goes,
POP! goes the weasel.

amish buggy

part of the fun of antiquing is that you never know what you're gonna find. for example, the other day we found this old amish buggy. awesome, don’t you think? we thought this would make a fantastic photo op for bailey, so if you take a closer look into the surrey, you’ll see what i mean.


"did you see me? here i am!"

in it’s heyday, it must have looked like this:

blessed

saturday morning bailey got a special blessing from chaplain cindy watts. she wasn’t too sure about the sprig of lavender on her head but she was a good girl about it all and graciously accepted the blessing.

through the looking glass

well actually, it’s a chunk of styrofoam, but 'through the styrofoam' didn’t have the right ring to it. enjoy your weekend!

that face

"that face, that face, that wonderful face,
it shines, it glows all over the place,
and how i love to watch it change expressions,
each look becomes the prize of my possessions.

i love that face, that face, it just isn't fair,
you must forgive the way that i stare,
but never will these eyes behold a sight that could replace,
that face, that face, that face."

happy ending

bailey had an encounter with a baby lizard yesterday.

"hi tiny, little lizard!"

the little guy didn’t run away when bailey approached it.


it even let her sniff it! at this point, i was actually beginning to get worried about the little guy :(


then, before bailey, and i, knew what happened, it ran away. whew! i guess it was just... daydreaming? i dunno. i’m just glad it was ok. yay! a happy ending.

waiting

bailey hears her daddy fumbling with his keys at the front door, so she sits and patiently waits for him to come in the door.

dog tired

our recent trip to arizona took quite a bit out of little bailey. it was over a 7 hour drive to get there but she was a trooper and never complained once. these pictures were taken the next morning as we sat with our morning coffee in downtown tucson.
(times taken from the time stamp on my phone.)

9:42 - tired eyes but trying to stay with us

9:43 - uh oh, she’s falling

9:44 - splat! BOL
