    Evening light, Little Birds, and Oak Trees

    Friday, April 25th, 2014

    oaktreeAs I stepped out our front door the other evening, I was in awe with the beautiful light.

    Then I saw a little bird fly off.

    littlebirdI decided to sit down and wait to see if I could get some shots of birds.

    birdsThere is something very restful about waiting and watching as the light slowly fades away.

    I used to spend a lot of my evenings as a teenager watching the sunset.

    I would sit on a little hill by the road and watch the sun disappear over my neighbors pond.

    I wonder if that is why it has such an effect on me.

    It is like I take a big breath when I get to see one and feel I have ended my day right.

    A Land Run

    makingflagsJennifer of jenslittlethings.com invited us out to her place to re-enact an Oklahoma Land Run!

    She had them make flags to stake their claim and then gave a lesson on the Land Run’s in Oklahoma.

    claimjumpThey thought trying to steal each others claim was a great idea.

    lunchWe ate lunch at my oldest’s claim.

    Which was really far away from everyone else.

    Oh well.

    My youngest pointed out that his brothers land was hotter than his land and that we should have eaten at his place because it was cooler.

    Yes, I am sure your place is a lot cooler since it is a whole 10 feet away.

    Now I need an Oklahoma cookie cutter and cookie dough, and someone to make them for me…

    visitorThere was an unexpected visitor!

    So cute!

    It was a great day!

    I have the red neck to prove it!

    Or maybe that was because I was too lazy to get the sunscreen out of my vehicle.
