Heron walking around the beach

There are a few different Herons that come by once in a while. This one I spotted after it was already heading to the other side of the dock, so by the time I ran out there it was getting away. I did manage to run up and get a few up close pictures, but evidently I crept up too close as he decided to split.

Click the pictures for the higher res versions. I wish I would have got a video of how the Heron goes under the dock. The head goes down like a slinky, it's hilarious...

2009 4th of July

The neighbors have American flag fold-up chairs. Grandpa has pride too but he also has a looooot of soap for making bubbles.

Mom baked a sun cake to celebrate Bren's birthday, and he had it all to himself.

June 2009, pre 1st Birthday Party

Hey, it's been some time. But I've got updates coming with various June pictures.

Here's my guy Johan, who doesn't care that he gets dirty playing at the beach. Good chance that's where he'll be on the fourth.
