Sterling's Senior Pictures!

This little story started in the garden!  I was getting some weeding done and taking photos of some of my garden flowers, so I decided to let Sterling, our Holland Lop buck play in the garden while I worked.  These photos are the results of our playtime!  The funniest part of the story is that while I am practicing my photo taking, Sterling kept on getting into the shot!  He was busy getting in my picture, and that is why I called this post "Sterling's senior pictures"!  You will see in a few pics why I thought this!  

Some of the dreamy pinks we planted

Found some awesome Yellow Poppies! 

Here's the beginning of where he got involved!  


They are so pretty!  

He apparently liked the smells

He is hiding here in the shade!  
This pose was his idea- which really confirmed we were doing his senior pics! 

The Sweetest eyes! 

Another close one for his portfolio

And those gorgeous pinks were the focus of things, but here he is again!  

Found these Dahlias! 

See all those little hairs??? 

These are the succulents he wanted in his pics!  

This guy was absolutely hilarious that day!  He was working hard at getting in my way while I took photos, so I guess he has a little bit of a show-off in his personality!

Thanks for visiting this little blog of mine!!  Hope you will join me again!!

Our Kite Flying Adventures

The Spring Weather has Us wanting to get out and fly a kite, so we finally got to do just that.  We got Jensen a new kite this year, and we really enjoyed a little park time while we flew it!

Gorgeous day to fly a KITE 

See it???? Its WAAYYYYYYY up there


It has such a long string and Jen and Randy wanted to see if they could use all the string!! 

Piper was not amused! 


Brooklyn was having quite a time in the wind!  



Reeling it back IN

Let's go to the RANCH!

Back on the blog today after yet another weekend out of town, so I still keep saying how bad I am at blogging!  I really take a ton of photos when I am out of town, but am way behind in getting them on the blog, so today I am just picking up on the story of our life!  This story is about our recent adventures  on the RANCH!
For Christmas this year, I decided Randy would love a trip to a Dude Ranch!  He's a cowboy at heart, so this adventure sounded like a winner, and Let me tell you -- It was AWESOME!  We went to Tombstone Monument Ranch south of Tucson Arizona.  It was absolutely delightful!  Here's some of my favorite pics!
This place was so much fun!  We loved the Rooms and that each one was part of a "Street" Scene.  

Desert Beauty



Real cowboys live here

The fastest shot in the WEST! 


This little pony was THE Boss out in the Corral

This ranch had lots to do and wonderful meals in the Saloon!  We loved the whole experience!  They did a fantastic job and I'd highly recommend the ranch!  The rides were absolutely beautiful!! 

Loved this swishy tail! 

So many friendly and beautiful animals! 





Here's one side of the street

We spent some time taking pics by the corral!  Really good subjects!!

My poor Little Bloggeeeeeee

 Well, I've had to keep saying this....  but my Poor little Blog!!!  I have not been it's best friend lately! I have a good excuse -- this time -- I have been out of town the last couple weeks, and we have lots going on!  Today I am back and TRYING to get all caught up.   WE have had lots of fun traveling, and now we are back to share this story!!  We have Baby bunnies again!!  Here they are at 3 days old.   This little family of 4 arrived on March 15th.  Stella is such a great mom and we are loving having them!  During the time we were away--- the Housesitter(s) fed them their "Wheaties" and here is what we found when we came home.
These guys are now 4 weeks OLD!  They have grown by leaps and bounds.   This is Dasher on the left and Vixen on the right!  They are just plain adorable! 
We love their "Airplane" ears!    Vixen and Dasher again!
Here we are all cuddled up in the box! 

This was just earlier today-- they are all over the cage now and we let Mama have some "mother's day out" trips occasionally too!  We are loving watching them grow up!  YOU can always watch my daily reports on my Instagram Story under my IG name colette913

Thanks for coming by and please don't give up on my little bloggeeeeee!!!

Adventures with Company


We recently had delightful company from Iowa visit!  These friends, the Bayers, have been friends with us for many years and I have to credit my first job as a hairdresser many moons ago for meeting them!  We hit it off then and as the years have progressed, it has been our blessing to stay friends and see each other a few times a year.  When they visited us recently in Albuquerque, we decided an adventure was in order.  We took them to the Beautiful Tentrocks for a hike!
Sunny Weather and a lovely place to visit! 

The landscape was just gorgeous! 



Layers and layers of rock formations

So many beautiful pictures to take 


We were very happy our friends are also adventurers like we are! 


AND a little bit of the NM landscape includes some Cactus!  They look dangerous! 

Thanks for coming along with us and please come back to visit my blog soon!
