I've determined it's time to break up. It's time for you to leave. I know it's really only been 1 week of this yucky stuff, but we are all beyond the fun stage.
It looks so beautiful...and it really was...but we are all ready for spring and warm weather!
We are tired of being cooped up inside the house...even though we've taken several drives to take pictures.
On one of our drives, we even had to help wrangle some jackasses. Imagine that! (I'm not sure what the difference in a donkey vs a jackass, but Mr Gilbert called them jackasses. Might have been because he was a little peeved? ;)
It was quite comical and although I only had to help shoo them back once, I helped! :)
You just never now what you're going to run in to!
I love this barn. I've photographed it in the sunshine, rain, fog and now snow. I love it in all seasons!
More double sunflare.
Garrison creek... kids favorite fishing hole!
These barns just touch my heart.
Bugscuffle Road...no joke. :) 1 lane bridge over the creek. I had to stop quick, get out...it was icy...go to the back of the car to take the picture, and then navigate back to the car before the car behind me caught up. Hence the reason I wasn't in the center of the bridge.
I really enjoyed my morning with the punk. I learn a lot from him! :)
A few weeks ago we had a snow day. It wasn't much (and definitely not enough to sled on), but it was enough to close schools with fears of icy roads. I decided to take a early morning ride and as I got about a mile down the road, I received a text from punk #2 as to where I was going and could he come. I told him what I was doing and he said he wanted to go take pictures with me...well, how could I say no to that?! So we spent 2 hours riding around listening to Mike Rayson on the radio...it was a good God day! :)
It was still quite early!
Ditch jumping and snowy feet for this picture.
I love these guys. Unfortunately we forgot snacks for them, so they were not happy...but they sure are cute!
I love some good sunflare!
I love this old house. It looks run down (and it is), but it's still lived in! Amazing! (Notice the grand kids bike on the front porch!)
We waited all day and into the evening for it to start
snowing...I thought the weather guys were going to get it
wrong again as all the schools closed for today. I gave up
looking for it and went to bed before midnight. Apparently
midnight was the key, because between 1200am-600am, we received
9+ inches of the lovely white stuff. I figured the little
darlings would be up at the crack of dark to go play, but they
surprised me and slept in.
We took a walk before most people decided to try to venture
out. It really was beautiful.
Yesterday we awoke to a winter fog. And goodness was it
thick! Grabbed my camera and dumped the kids at school and
I took a drive. Even found a few surprised along the way. But
I am calling my drive "the barn" drive because most of what
I took pictures of were the barns. They look so cool in the
fog...and then as the sun was peeking out and lighting them
up, it reminded me of spring...so, here's hoping spring is
around the corner!
I drive by this barn every day and always plan on stopping...
I've gotten this barn before, but never when we've had this
It REALLY was foggy!
These 2 barns are down a little country lane that we've all
nicknamed "Rattlesnake Road"...betcha can figure out why?! There's
a beautiful ranch house between where these 2 barns are that has
been foreclosed on because no one will live there anymore...why?...
because the house is INFESTED with rattlers! Think about that the
next time you hear a strange noise!
The fog was lifting and it was giving me great filter color!
