Mini posters

One of my hobbies is to create mini posters, or quote cards.

dressed up for spring

This winter I went for a walk and took photos of the frost in the neighborhood.  I particularly was taken with one tree.  Today the same tree is covered with pink blossoms.  It's spring again the trees are telling me...

Hiking with my honey

I visited a couple one day who had just returned from a hike. The Constellation Hike.  Some years ago a plane (The Constellation) went down in this area and a  Eagle Scout built a monument for those who lost their lives. This is a new set of trails located at the Granite Dells.  Mike  gave me copy of the map and Gary and I decided to give it a try.  It is the perfect hike for me.  Mostly flat with a do-able incline and a few rocks to climb over.  It is a fun hike for families or older people (like myself) who have problem knees.  The view is pretty and the rocks remind me of the hike I use to take with my sisters and father at the South Mountain park in Phoenix.  It was a gorgeous day; sunny and cool breezes.  There were quite a few people hiking that day.  I believe it will become a well used hiking area .  When my grand children come for a visit we will certainly make use of these trails.

Fat Heads or poster child?

Whenever the grandchildren visit I ask them to draw of poster of themselves to put on my wall.  I love being able to see them everyday.  Rylee is a new addition.  Who needs to order a Fat Head poster when I have such wonderful artists in the family!  These works of art can been seen in the entry way of our home.  They are first to greet any visitor.

Rylee liked the looks of this horse but wasn't too sure about the rocking.  She srood next to it and rocked by the handles.  Hopefully she will want to ride on it later.
