Tent Caterpillar

As a child I used to see a lot of cocoons in trees, but not so much anymore.  Is that a good or bad thing?  Who knows but I suspect it is not good as this may mean that there are fewer and fewer of these worms.

Entered for this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge: Transient since the cocoons do not las long.  Here today gone tomorrow (few weeks)

And There He Is!!

Friday my grandson, Arai, had his Pre-K graduation ceremony (due to his birthday he will be doing another year of Pre-K).  Although it was a small service visibility was limited, since the graduates were short.  However, I was able to capture his GREAT smile between a couple of out of focused parents.

The thief is back..and he has a partner!

A couple of weeks ago I photographed a squirrel “stealing” bird seed that I put out.  Now yesterday I finally catch him again and this time there are two of them.  The one on the feeder takes some seeds and makes sure to drop some for his partner in crime below.  As a result my flowers are being trampled and breaking off.

On Instagram it was suggested that I get a new feeder with a spinner on it to keep the squirrels away.  Well Wal-Mart did not have any when I went so I go something that I thought would work.  It did not

 

 

I will be on the hunt for a bird feeder with a spinner on it.  Get ready for some funny videos.

Field Station: Dinosaurs

I first heard about Field Station Dinosaurs about 2 years ago.  So today my family and I decided to go and check it out.  The reviews online were so so but I took the chance any way.  I am glad that I was not influenced by some of the reviews.

Field Sation: Dinosaurs is a good place to visit and perfect for children 8 and under and adults who are still children at heart.  We had a GREAT time.

Here are just a few pictures.

Scientists believe that the horn on the Parasaurolophus made noise so that it could alert others of danger, mating, and possibly when it was in pain.

 

There are things for the kids to do for additional fun, some cost extra money and others do not.

I hope you enjoyed the dinosaurs and as always, thanks for visiting!

 

When Mom-mom is the Sitter….FUN HAPPENS!

Arai and I spent some time together today on another Adventure.  It is a rainy day here in New Jersey and he needed to release some of his pent-up energy for the sake of everyone else’s sanity.  So I took him to one of his favorite places, the woods, which we refer to as an Adventure.

Here are a few quick pictures that I was able to capture when he slowed down a bit.

                          Look at the happiness on that face!

This is something that his mother would never let him do and since I am Mom-mom she can’t fuss at me for allowing and encouraging it….LOL

Doing the Happy Dance to be in the woods again!

Another memory created.

A Thief has been Captured

I have been filling up the bird feeder almost everyday.  I thought that Arai was playing with it and causing the seeds to spill out.  He kept saying that he did not do it, but I know that he plays in this tree.

I filled the feeder about an hour before this little thief was captured.  Arai called me to tell me that there is a squirrel and the he is eating he seeds.

 

The thief has been captured!

A Table and a Chair

What could be dangerous about a table and chair?  When it comes to Arai, anything can be dangerous especially when he is being super busy and attempting to “hide” from Mom-Mom.

He went down a little too fast and too hard.  For his troubles he got a little knot on his forehead.  But that was not the end.

After hitting his head he decided to get down.  This is when he and the chair went tumbling to the ground.

In the end Arai and the furniture were ok, no more bumps.

In Honor of…..

….EARTH DAY

My shadow also known as my grandson Arai, was helping me pull weeds in the flower bed today.  He wants to do what mom-mom is doing but his attention span needs to be a bit longer.  I did more calling him back to help me finish me then he actually worked.  He is a work in progress….

Life Springs Forth

 

Most people, myself included, consider Dandelions weeds because they are very invasive and take away from our beautiful green lawns.  Dandelions are the flower with many health uses according to Organic Facts.  According to Organic Facts here are some of the things that they are good for, bone health, liver disorders, acne and skin care and many more uses.

These Dandelions are growing in the brick patio at my mother’s house.

Do you consider it a weed or flower?

Rainbow Colors

Let’s Just Blow Bubbles

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just blow bubbles,
For no good reason
Let’s just blow bubbles,
Laugh a little, watch them disappear
Not even wonder where.
Smile and touch the rainbow colors
Watch them float in the air.
No reason why–
No goals, no structure.

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just
blow bubbles.
