I like to take photos of colorful birds. I may take the same bird or kind of birds over and over throughout the year. I just can’t help myself. So, here we go. . . Please click on the photo to enlarge and read the description. Enjoy

On our way home from a fun weekend in Wausau with family, Spotter Sam called to tell me there were 40+ Pelicans on the river. We took a detour to the river and were glad we did. Even though it was a cloudy and sprinkling day we saw the beautiful site of the pelicans. I am glad I have a good friend in Spotter Sam.
We all went to Wausau for Easter at Phil and Karen’s. 15 humans and 6 dogs had a slumber party for the weekend. Fun, Food, Food and more. Phil made a fantastic Easter dinner. He also made a great dinner on Friday night for just the 4 of us. Super large shrimp on the grill. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! I hope you enjoy the photos.
HAPPY EASTER 2014
Danie will not color eggs next year.
Chris and his friends came from Wausau for the High School Hockey Tournament and came to eat at Grandma’s house. I fed them dinner Friday night and lunch Saturday afternoon. They were very polite and friendly. They can come anytime.
Kudos to their parents for raising them to be such nice young men, that includes my son Phil and daughter-in-law Karen. Papa and I had a great time with them and I think they had a good time also. Oliver and Bob loved them also. I think Oliver and Bob would have kept them if they could.
Come again anytime boys.

Lisa brought the girls over to make pizza and chocolate dipped strawberries. We had a great time. The girls loved putting their hands in the dough and adding their own toppings. They did wear some of the chocolate on their hands and face but they had a good time dipping and eating the strawberries. We also made a pretzel candy treat, which they took home. Kristina and Julianna are 2 of the sweetest little girls you will ever meet. Lisa and Paul sure are raising them to respect and be polite to others. I could squeeze them to death, including their sweet mama. Love them. Julianna is more of a ham. Kristina is becoming a little lady and doesn’t want her dirty face showing.

Easter Bonnets by Kristina and Julianna Designers Kristina and Julianna designed, made and modeled their beautiful creations. They talked about it, then studied it for awhile, arranged things, re-arranged things then decided. They did a beautiful, fantastic and artistic job. They match their personalities. We had such a wonderfully fun time. I could just eat them up. Phil and I just love them and of course their Mom Lisa and Dad Paul also. They had a mini Easter hunt and found their cute and soft animal pillow and blankets. Kristina got a brown puppy and Julianna got a white bunny. They loved them. I can’t wait until the next visit.
Wonderful Christmas. Plenty of love, food and fun.

I had a wonderful time photographing these two beautiful little girls. Thanks to their Mom and Dad, Lisa and Paul, they made it easy for me. They were my gophers and did a great job.
I hope you enjoy the photos.
