Remembering 2011 – Part two

Things not posted throughout the year, part two . . .


A visit to the bug zoo, notice where she has her money.

Species tulips match so nicely with the dandelions, I totally planned it that way 🙂

This was the most exciting day of my dog Pepper’s life. A young squirrel with a death wish kept fearlessly running back and forth across the top of the fence taunting her all afternoon. He definitely wasn’t the world’s most coordinated squirrel, he looked like he was going to fall every single time. During one of his “breaks” he stood right on the other side of the fence with his tail flopped over the top, chattering away. I totally missed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pull a squirrel’s tail, instead I took a picture.

Take my picture, mom!


This was a sad day. We went on a hike at Konza Prairie and noticed that the oldest tree there, an oak, had died. It was ~150 years old.

Look at all those people!

For Mother’s Day. It is a picture of the two of us, our dogs and some baby birdies.

More pictures from Yellowsone. This is one of the paint pots.

My parents had several visitors to their place. Ultimately, they escorted two raccoons and three opossums off the property.
