Photo Friday: Fossil Rim

Garen took the bigs to Fossil Rim a few weeks back on his way back from Hamilton. Despite Will almost losing a thumb while feeding a very greedy Oestrich, they had a fantastic time. If you’ve never been to Fossil Rim in Glen Rose, it’s absolutely a Texas bucket list item!

It was a great opportunity for Garen to pull out his camera and capture these moments spent with our two oldest wild things and the rest of the wildlife.

Here’s a few of our favorite photos from their adventure:


Photo Friday: Colorado- Where the Wild Things Live- Part 1

Garen and I had the MCAA Midyear Meeting in Steamboat, CO in August and we decided to take a few days off before it to go to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park.

Of course, we had a great time and, of course, Garen took some awesome photos. These are only a few because my phone is having technical difficulties (I’m sure it’s not user error).

We got to see a TON of animals in the wild. It was amazing.

Red Bird, Red Bird, What Do You See?

Saturday morning, Samantha (the cat) was quite upset with something outside the kitchen window. As I looked to see what had her so agitated, I saw a female cardinal sitting on the window seal. She was being pursued by a very persistent male. 

Garen snapped a few photos and as I looked through them I couldn’t help but think of the children’s book Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?  It asks the red bird what it sees. (As a side note, this is a favorite of our kids)

I think his answer would be, “I see a female bird, running from me.”

I’m pretty sure this is a bird’s version of flexing their muscles in an attempt to woo a mate. 

Thanks to Garen for capturing these few moments before Samantha scared them away.
