Saturday & Sunday Pictures

We ran around quite a bit on Saturday and Sunday. I’m still not very good with my camera. Mostly I just throw it on auto and go. Sometimes it just doesn’t take the picture and I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

The other day my husband found a hole going under our house (slab foundation) so he filled it in. I assumed chipmunks, but we have a huge assortment of small animals that burrow in our area so you never know. The next day my son and I saw a large uniquely patterned bunny digging around in the same area. Saturday I saw the same bunny sitting by our side gate under the mail box, just staring at our side door. For a very long time. I swear there was malice in those eyes.

Saturday we went to the Toledo Zoo. We normally arrive just before they open and it’s a great place to walk. Get some exercise while enjoying the animals before the crowds arrive. On Saturday we arrived 20 minutes after they opened and the line of cars to get to the entrance was about a mile. I guess a bunch of new exhibits opened this weekend and they’re were all sort of things going on.

One of them was this guy. I wish I could have gotten a better picture. He was impressive.

There are baby polar bear cubs in this exhibit I’m told. I could not have verified it. I escaped as quickly as possible!

I kept trying to work with the zoom on my camera.

This guy was staring at me. I’m sure.

Speaking of staring at me. On Sunday we went to The Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village. There is a very large Civil War Remembrance Weekend going on so the place is filled with tents and people in period dress living on the the grounds this weekend. We did get here before they opened as we’ve experienced the no fun’ness of not being able to find a parking spot before.

As so frequently happens I was trying to get a shot of the oncoming crowds and managed to capture someone looking straight at the camera. Do you think she thought I was taking her picture? I think whenever I see someone taking a picture I will stop and smile directly at the camera so they can find me in their pictures. Like a Where’s Waldo kind of thing.



Windmills are cool.


Corey was helping troubleshoot some problems at work for the plant in Illinois. Apparently the people on the path above him thought he was part of an exhibit. 

This was a shot out the window of an imported English cottage. Wouldn’t this be a lovely side yard? Probably no malevolent bunnies here.

The weather was really beautiful Saturday & Sunday. As evidenced by the shade seeking sheep though, the sun was a bit warm by mid afternoon. 

Apparently this is the Civil war reenactment solution to the same problem as the sheep were having.
