Nah, just kidding! But a momma snapping turtle decided the entrance to our garden was a good spot to lay her eggs!

We plan on marking the area so we don’t mow over it. I’m just waiting for the day that I come home from work and find little foot prints and broken shells which should be in about 60 – 90 days! Want more info on snappers? Click HERE.

I’ve been absent for a while and, for that, I apologize. My dad had open heart surgery on April 29th. Before that he was in the hospital because we weren’t sure what was going on.

I had the honor of bringing him home from the hospital on May 6th and it’s a day that I’ll never forget.

These past few weeks have been life altering and nothing could have prepared me for it. Seeing a parent, who was always the strong one, so vulnerable, sedated, and hooked up to a breathing tube was literally the hardest thing I’ve had to experience. I have never witnessed my father so vulnerable. He’s had serious surgeries before, but I was so young that I guess I didn’t fully understand the severity of the situation.

Now he’s on the mend and I’m just so incredibly grateful.

I want to thank everyone who prayed for my family. It means a lot to me that people took the time to say a few words of kindness for my Dad. For the past few months my Dad wasn’t himself. And we realize now that it’s because his heart wasn’t working at full capacity. I am just so incredibly grateful that he’ll be back to his old, energetic self in the next couple months.

I’d like to ask for thoughts and prayers for my Dad right now. He has been admitted into a heart specialty hospital. He will be having open heart surgery sometime next week.

Thank you.

Hey there!
I took this video this morning of Henry in the guest bathroom. He loves playing in there. He hasn’t quite figured out how to push the stopper down to get the water to come out. Pretty adorable, right?

P.S. Sorry it’s dark.

Hi all,
I’ve been testing out videos for my site. I can’t get any to directly upload to wordpress, which is really frustrating at times. I decided to upload them to youtube to share with you.

So, here you are:

Well, you’ll never guess what I got a picture of this weekend.

A lion. I couldn’t believe it.

Just look at how ferocious it is.
