The Last Week (or two) in Pictures

 The beginning weeks of April have been very busy, and very fun filled.  So I thought I would share some of the random photos I have taken the past two weeks.  Enjoy!!!
 April 6th was Sadie Rose's first Birthday, so to celebrate we took her to the dog park.
 She was rather timid at first but soon she realized that it wasn't so scary after all, and that maybe all the other dogs weren't out to eat her, and then she really enjoyed herself.
 We also had some last minute pruning to do.

 One afternoon, after pruning, we went down to the flint river to "cool" our feet.

 Another item in our day's work was babysitting 11 Saint Bernard puppies and their Momma.

They were absolutely adorable, and their Mother was an angel dog, putting up with all of them nursing around the clock.
 On the last day that we took care of them, the puppies eyes were just beginning to open and they were trying to totter around on their chubby little legs.
 One of our great finds was this absolutely stunningly beautiful male Pileated Wood Pecker.  Yes, he is real, and no he is not alive.  Mom and I found this gorgeous bird lying dead in the middle of the road.  We were so glad we got to see one of these evasive birds up close, but saddened that it wasn't alive and well.
So there is the last couple weeks in a nutshell (or should I say in a camera lens) I do hope you enjoyed it! :)
