Nice Weekend

Ty and my brother had some wheelin' and dirt bike ridin' to do this weekend, so my sister-in-law and I spent Saturday hanging out with my mom, while the boys drove on to their destination a couple hours further east.

We had a good time. We found a little bird on the porch, that had apparently hit the window and been knocked silly. He let my sister-in-law Brie walk up to him and pick him right up and pet him. He even perched on her hand while she walked around. Of course I am snapping pictures like mad and getting excited cause they are so cute. Eventually, he flew away to the edge of the yard and perched on some small pines.

Of course, I whip out the camera and go to show Brie the great shots I captured... or would have captured, if I had a memory card in the camera!!!!!!!! O. M. G. Am I the only one this has happened to? And I am doing the photography for a wedding this weekend! Good thing I already thought of this and bought three extra memory cards and stashed them in my camera bag.

Anyway, we chased down the bird and I climbed the tree and got him down to Brie so we could at least prove to the men that we weren't lying...

We also got a kick out of these birds...

They were a type of gross beak and were wild maniacs. I saw one and thought it was a pet that got loose, then they came in by the dozens.

Then there were the eight-- yes, eight hummingbirds fighting over the feeder...

Of course they wouldn't all pose at one time. They were wildly dive bombing us. My mom has counted ten at one time before in previous years. There were a couple at a time until we went in the hot tub that evening and just before dark, they all seemed to show up at once for one last feeding.

The cousins got some hang time, watching many astonishing TV programs we don't have on limited cable at home...

Look at that baby's eyes! What a goofy girl!

It was a great weekend, but it's good to be home!
