Fun on the water

This past weekend we had a wonderful time visiting my family several hours away. My dad took us out fishing in his boat, and began teaching David to drive the boat on the way to the fishing spot. His expressions may not show it, but he was excited!

After going on the river for a while, we went to the Botanical Gardens to see the scarecrows.

Then we went to a local nursery to enjoy their pansy festival! What a beautiful and enjoyable day. The whole weekend was wonderful!

Last week we had our local county fair. David entered several things including 2 pairs of pajama bottoms, a wooden shelf, and a beautiful photo of a garden spider. He won a blue ribbon for each! We are so proud of him, and happy that he had the opportunity.

I haven't had much time to paint lately and I miss it! I'm posting a couple of sketches I did last year and hope to have something new to put up soon. The top one is David's fishing hat, and the bottom one is a green anole who visited our back patio last year. We enjoyed watching him and drawing him for our nature notebooks.
For you Auburn fans, check out my newly created cards in Greeting Card Universe. I have some cards made from photos I have taken on campus through the years. I hope you enjoy them! War Eagle!
