Pussy Willow Catkins 03.24.11


I read that Pussy willow catkins are the first willow catkins to appear each year and are recognized as a sign of spring, see:

Spring has sprung!

Moolah Shrine Circus

Gary, Vincent, Heidi, Paige and I went to the circus Saturday morning. We got there early, but apparently not early enough. When we were trying to find seats people were literally saving 5 or 10 seats. Some people had two people, one on each end of the row, saving the entire row. No one saw a problem with this. I mean, people that get there five minutes before the performance get to go in and sit in their nice, saved seat. If people want to sit together they should wait outside until they're all together then find seats. I don't see a huge problem with it for smaller events, but for something where there is going to be thousands of people, c'mon. Be respectful. I'm not trying to be ungrateful or complain, but it was really frustrating. We had tickets too...
Besides the seat thing, we had a pretty fun time. This year's circus seemed a lot more packed than last year. There wasn't a bear riding a bicycle or the dog show, but there was a quick change artist, a guy getting shot out of a canon, the elephants, monkeys, tigers and other cool acts.
I couldn't get really great pictures because we were sitting really far away, but here are a few.
This photo reminds me of Willa Wonka for some reason.
I was trying to get his shadow. I couldn't see this part very well.
There he is...
Ring of fire
Cute lil monkey
Elephant act... well, the back of it anyway :D
Baby elephant!
Aerial artist
Flag finale
If we get to go next year, we'll know to get there earlier!

Beautiful Day 3.20.11


Oh what a gorgeous day it was. Only in Missouri will you have snow on Monday and 80 degree weather by the end of the week. Today, this male Cardinal decided to hang out at my house for a bit. Unfortunately he wouldn't let me get any closer to snap a picture.

Vin! 3.18.11

Vin! 3.18.11

This carefully cropped photo says my little goose's name! Actually, it's not really cropped that much. It just says St. Vincent's Parish. Still cool.

Flaw Dog 3.17.11


Saw this cute pup visiting children at the park. Apparently he is a "flawed" pure bred because he has white on his nose. What some would think is unique, others call a flaw. Either way, cute pup!

This is my first attempt at taking a photo like this. You're supposed to have a tripod, but I didn't and propping the camera on my knee had to suffice. You can tell I was a little shaky because the photo is blurry. The rain doesn't look terrible. Maybe next time.

Jesus 3.7.11


I've always thought the inside of this church was beautiful. Here is just one mural for you to see.

Beautiful Sun Scenes 3.4.11

A series of photos for the photo of the day. This won't be a habit, I promise. I just thought they were all so pretty.

Full disclosure: All of these photos were taken yesterday. None of them were edited. The sky is just that freakin' pretty.

Feeding Ducks 3.3.11

Vin park

I love this photo because you can see the bread flying through the air. Vincent looks so happy. You can totally tell where I cloned out a lady in photoshop, but for a first try, I can't complain.
