Sunset and Bubbles????

What do Sunset and Bubbles have in common, you ask?? Well, it all just happened one evening when Jensen was doing a photography experiment with bubbles.  She finds all kinds of cool ideas for photos on Pinterest, so she set up her tripod and was taking pics of bubbles!  Of course, I had to get my camera out, too!

I loved this bubble shot and with the busy background, I loved it more in Black and White! 

Here's where the Sunset comes in.  It got more fun as it got dark! 

Here'e another one I loved

The glow on the bubbles is so fun! 

The sky was getting better and better as we played.

We've been having some amazing sunsets lately here in New Mexico! 

This is where we put away the bubbles and just enjoyed the sky!!

Thanks for visiting!

This weekend I had such a fun privilege to attend a BARN wedding in TEXAS!  I have shared before about Milagro Farms, a Bed and Breakfast and Wedding venue owned by my friends Laurie and Steve.  I have traveled there a few times last year, and they spoiled me/us rotten!  I was so happy to be invited to their Daughter, Mesa's wedding to Graham this past weekend!  I loved every minute and they had such a beautiful wedding!  I took some pics- none of them are spectacular, because I was too busy having fun to concentrate, but I wanted to share a few- even though they are not my best work!  You will see this wonderful venue!! AND the wonderful folks who own it doing what they do best!!
YES!  this happened!  Rainy right before the ceremony-- but no one was bothered, because they have an amazing barn for shelter and it worked beautifully!  

While waiting for the rain to pass, I caught this photo of the awesome cake!!  When we ate it later on-- it was lemon pound cake with raspberry filling-- divine!

Here's Laurie, the Mother of the Bride, an amazing friend to me, the bed and breakfast owner, the caterer and the Wedding venue owner!  She has many hats and juggled them all in a fantastic way!! 

After the rain, it became the most amazing evening-- perfect lighting and the ceremony was outside!!  I did not shoot during the ceremony!  It was so pretty!

This lovely bride is now Mrs. Graham Delano!  What a gorgeous bride and a couple of her bridesmaids!   I loved the bouquets!!! 

Mr. and Mrs.!  

The evening was wonderful after the rain!b 

This lovely young lady is also a friend of mine- and the best friend of the bride!  She did such a great toast! 

This pic is very random and I love it because the 3 generations of ladies dancing-- the bride, her mom and her grandma!! 

Really beautiful setting and flowers!

And a little dancing!!!
It was such a wonderful time!!  Congratulations to the newlyweds!!

Time to go, KIDS! 
This week, our little baby bunnies are 8 weeks old!  It's time for them to go home with their new families!!  We have had such a fun time with this first litter-- of course we are attached to them-- but we are so happy they will be going with families and making other people so happy!  The littles are so tame, and they are such easy easy pets!  I am happy for the new owners-- and of course, will miss these babies we have been holding and taking care of for the last 8 weeks.  It was a fun new adventure for us!  Here's a few last pics we recently took-- and I am not sure what I will take photos of now!!  lol!!
Some of us would not cooperate and show our face!! 

We let them experience the grass-- and it took 2 assistants to herd them! 

Those little faces get me every time! 

Here's a few new owners-- they are in LOVE!  The babies will give them great JOY!!

Thanks for stopping by the Rabbit Report!!

The Beauty in Butterflies

Last week, on a whim, one afternoon, Jensen and I decided to take a quick field trip to the Bio Park where they have a Butterfly Pavilion.  It opens in May each year at the Bio Park and we love to practice photography there.  So, one late afternoon, with only about an hour and a half left to go, we took a little fast field trip over there. It was perfect!  WE had plenty of time to shoot lots of photos and also walk thru the gorgeous flowers there.  It was spontaneous and we are so happy we went!  Here's my favorite pics from the field trip!
They are a work of art! 

This guy was fresh out of his cocoon! 

They come in such gorgeous colors

all different, too
Every single one is so pretty

And of course, I make Jensen pose alot, too

up close and personal here 
The Bio Park also has a gorgeous pond and this guy was on a rock napping!  

So much to learn-- this one was parked right under this sign with the education on it. 

I love all the flowers they have too! 

Jensen got some really beautiful photos with her camera, too

Thanks for coming by to enjoy these beauties with me!  Please visit often!!! I am sure I will be taking another field trip very soon to capture more of these guys!

Time to report on the Bunnies

The time this month went super fast again!!  Am I getting OLD or what??? OUR May was alot of fun due to these adorable baby bunnies!  You who read my blog saw our bunnies a few posts ago.  They have been growing and growing and we have spent every day playing with them!  These littles are so TAME!  WE go out to the cage and they all try to get out when we open the door.  They love it when we give them carrots and bananas and they LOVE to snuggle!  We are going to miss them so much!!  We have only another week, and they will go home to their new families!  I am so excited for everyone who is getting one because this little PET will be so wonderful for them!
LOVE their little whiskers! 

This is MINI Stella- as we call her-- she is the spittin' image of her mommy!  She is also the littlest and super cuddly!  Behind her is Colby-- aka black as Coal! 

This is the full cage-- at times, we think Stella might be desperate for a vacation!  

This guy is POM POM!  He is the Most friendly of the group -always comes and does this when we come to the cage.  He is super  social and tame!!!! 

Yes, that is POM POM and next to him is Snowball!  Randy and Jocelyn like Snowball best!! 

Snowball!  At her finest!!!  

This is just a bonus Rose shot I needed to show off- it is from my garden!  Lovely!! 

Here's Daddy bunny named Sterling!  I did not feature the other 2 here this time, but Clover and Mustache are just as precious too!  Maybe another post next week can showcase them! 

And this== just a random Poppy again from the Garden!!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting us!  I appreciate you reading all my craziness!!

The Rain Report

We live in a desert-- and it is usually Really dry!  This last week, we have been blessed with some awesome rains!  I see all over the country it has been strange and crazy weather- but we have been very thankful.  I am sure the trees and my roses are very happy!  Since I don't get to practice rain pictures very often- I took the opportunity!  Gotta use that cute polka dot umbrella and the black and white boots anytime you can!
great big puddles!! 

Yep- it's muddy! 

that is sweet! 

Are we getting any more??

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are staying dry under some lovely sunny skies!!
