I Believe it's Bigfoot

I have a few photos of the Bigfoot search at this year's Oyster Party.  The grape arbor was transformed into Bigfoot's Den.

Bystanders watching the search....

And we're off on the search with our Bigfoot feet on!

Waiting for the Pinata.

Nolan pulled the correct string on the first pull.  The rest of the kids were a little disappointed, but it was great for Nolan who was having his 5th birthday party the next day.

All of the kidlets on the stairway.  What a great group of kids. Some of the group have already grown up, finished college and others are just off to college.  It doesn't seem possible.  Thank heavens there are some little guys like Quinn.

I am including some photos of Retired Mountain Man's insect project.  He put this lovely guy in the insectary yesterday.  We will have a beautiful butterfly in the spring.

Wildlife on the mountain in July

Retired Mountain Man has been taking care of his babies.  He has a lot of them.  He has been refilling two feeders every day for a month.  They are almost out of food in this video.  Yes, the humming that you hear is the roar of hummingbird wings.  We wake up to that every morning.  What could be better than that.  (Sorry about the extra noise in the background)

We have had some beautiful days on the mountain this summer.

The hollyhocks must be about twelve feet in the air!

A bouquet of Black-eyed Susans.

A baby came to visit and checks out the hose and the sprinkler.

Day Lily Perfection!

 Mr. bunny came to eat some clover.

A little video from Trav's game camera.  It will make your day.  You can view it better on in full screen mode.

I don't know who this is, but I wish she would clean my house instead of weeding my flower bed.
