Yesterday was a beautiful day!  Besides the perfect weather (not too cold, not too warm), my sisters and I went on a very nice picnic!  We went to a little park a few minutes from our house and to our luck we had the whole place to ourselves! 🙂  The sky was big and blue and the grass was so green from all the rain we’ve had lately, and it was just lovely.

(Hopefully we can go to this park again sometime because it was very pretty!)


Susanna got everything together with a little help from us all.  Really, it was all her.  She bought all these cute Valentines Day stuff and made little finger sandwiches and everything!


Esme, Skylar, and Susanna

It was very pink and red, of course!  I was holding a bowl of Jello and Sylvie and I bumped each other and it splattered on my LIGHT blue dress and WHITE tights!  Luckily it did now stain my dress, but there is a little pink tint where it fell on my tights.  (Just thought I’d share that)

Chocolates, Ferrero Rocher, rice crispy treats, et cetera!  Yum! 🙂

Aren’t the heart cups cute?!  She even got pink and white straws!  SO festive!

Look at this!  I zoomed into a jet flying across the sky!  I put a pink arrow pointing at it, if you can’t tell.

I was going to get a picture of all of us jumping, but the one of myself turned out really bad, and I forgot to get one of Skylar…*sorry Sky!*

Of course Susanna has a pretty awesome pose!  I like this picture.

Well, that was our lovely Valentines Day!  I hope you all had a glorious day yesterday as well.


On our picnic I got some great pictures of birds!  I don’t mean to be bird crazy or anything, but I really enjoy photographing birds, and these pics are AWESOME!

The first bird here is a vulture.  Not a very attractive bird, but I like how this pictures turned out. 🙂

Next up is a charming little Eastern Bluebird!  I will have to say that I was SO excited to have captured this picture!  I have been wanting to take a picture of this bird for a while now, and thanks to Sylvie I saw the bird just in time before it flew away.

It’s so pretty!

Last, but not least, this lovely hawk sat so still in the tree and let me get some stunning shots of it (hawks usually sit still).

I love hawks.  They are such strong and beautiful birds.

If I was a bird I would want to be a hawk…or a cardinal. 😉

Today was beautiful weather as well!  I wish I had spent more time outside today!  Hopefully tomorrow will be nice (I hear there might be some morning snow!).


One more story from yesterday then I’ll be off!  Before dinner Skylar and I went on a walk.  The weather was so nice and we left just in time to watch the sunset!  As we walked up our neighborhood, a huge flock of little blackbirds flew over us and we stood still to watch them and as we watched them fly away all we could hear was the pitter-pattering of their wings flapping!  It was almost magical! 🙂

Well, Bess and Evelyn just arrived, so I am going to visit with them and then eat dinner and then do something else!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and may the Lord be with you.


Much Love,
