Just playing around with different programs ...kind of fun! I used Picnik with this one, it's an online tool!

Sometimes, you miss the shot. But it's still pretty darn entertaining.

While away on vacation, Omaha had a hailstorm of massive proportions. Baseball-sized hail, 100 mph winds, and did I mention the baseball-sized hail? Any car parked outside did not stand a chance, and ours certainly did not. We had left it at the airport, and that was the area hardest hit. Back windshield gone, and too many dents to count. Cracked mirrors and front windshield. Going to get an estimate today.... hopefully they will not total it, it's a 2011!!!

Jake & Maggie

Last day in Montana, we visited the Montana Grizzly Encounter. It is a bear sanctuary where bears can live out their lives. All the bears were rescued from bad situations -circuses, or abandoned by their mothers in the wild. A bear cub has to stay with its Mom for the first 5 years before it knows how to fend/hunt for itself. So, some of the bears lost their moms and needed to be rescued. It was so cool watching them frolic and play, and they had a great area to run and play in. The guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot.

Yellowstone Falls

Yellowstone falls was amazing. We also hiked down closer to the bottom of the actual falls (where all the mist is) The hike back up was quite the trek!

'Ol Faithful Geyser

Of course, had to stop and watch 'Ol Faithful! No Yellowstone trip would be complete without it!

Hummingbird Moth

Well, the Hummingbirds have ignored the feeders at my house, so the best I have are Hummingbird Moths!

Spider Spotlight

This was taken by focusing on the spider (ew, yuck, gross!) with the streetlight fuzzed out behind him.

Super Neelah!

Neelah had a LOT of fun practicing agility last night, despite the killer heat. She was sassy and flying over the obstacles. That's my girl!
