Caught this guy napping @ Elmwood Park in Roanoke. I think he's probably happy it's Friday!
Now for some Friday 5's:
1) Rented Heaven Is For Real from the Redbox this week. Oh my gosh, what a great movie. But let me tell you this, my eyes hurt afterwards from all the crying I did! Oh and that little boy that played Colton Burpo is so dang cute! I mean serious cute! If you read the book I can't tell you how true to the book it is because although I have the book, I never finished it. I started it once but put it down for some reason and never got back to it. I will. Oneday.
2) I love Miranda Lambert and now I love her even more:
3) Had this beautiful creature stop by my yard for some lunch on Wednesday:
4) I was visiting a blog yesterday and a post they had reminded me of camping as a kid. My whole family were big rv'ers. Every summer, my grandparents, some of our family friends, my mom and dad (when he wasn't over seas otherwise it would just be me and my mom), my uncle and cousins...whoever wanted to tag along. We'd all load up our rv's and hit the road. A favorite place was in Utah along Beaver Creek if I remember correctly. It was really just a spot you'd pull right off the road and camp along the river. We'd set our rv's up in a square type formation and pull the awnings out so we had a little compound kind of thing. My cousins and I would fish with our grandpa and my uncle, we learned to clean the fish, even gut them. That was our job. We played in the river. There were these huge boulders near our camp site that my cousins and I would climb up and take a rock and make an indentation, like how the Native Americans ground corn and had that little bowl shape in the rock from grounding so much corn? Yeah, that was our goal. We were going to make those little corn bowls and trick historians into thinking that the Native Americans lived right there at one time, grounding corn! Ha, we'd work on that every summer. There was also this little log cabin that was deserted right across the river. We'd walk over and play around and in it. I remember one walk with my uncle leading the way down the river. There was kind of like a dam made of branches and stuff and a poor little calf had gotten caught in it and and died...so sad. There were cattle that would just come right through our camp! We'd always try to pet them but they wouldn't let us that close. I remember I was sent back to camp to get some stuff to eat to bring back to my grandpa and uncle who were fishing. I got almost to camp and there were cows all over. I was afraid having never really being near them that close so I ran back to my grandpa and uncle and told them I couldn't get to camp because of the cows. They thought I was such a chicken and made fun of me for years after! Ha, such great childhood memories made right there at that creek every summer!
5) I have to take Christian for senior pictures today. I cannot believe he is a senior this year. When we moved here he was only in 6th grade.
Ok, now your turn! Blog 5 randoms and come back and link up and visit other bloggers! Have fun and have a great weekend!! Thanks for playing!
