The little boys love having their picture taken (oh, those expressions!!) with the stuffed cougar. We had a cougar roaming our neighborhood a few years ago and Son #4 (back right) even spotted it one afternoon in the neighbor's field.
Son #3 using a acorn cap for a whistle. He really could make it whistle--and loud.
His acorn cap.
Stuck in a stump.
We saw LOTS of these. They were hard at work burying the acorns. I explained to the kids that sometimes the squirrels forget where they bury their stash and come springtime... viola'--a new tree. :-)
These gals must be used to people cause they let us get pretty close. Beautiful.
The herb bed with lots my favorite herbs--lemon balm, thyme, basil, etc...
Me and the boys
And me and the girls.
