First Pictures with the Nikon D40

I'm so excited! Can you tell?

First picture taken: the owl intended to scare the dang bunnies out of the strawberry patch. I don't know if it's the owl or the fencing around the garden, but the bunnies are finally leaving the plants alone.

Second: the garden crab that stands in monument to Eryn's favorite fish, LaurieFish I. (LaurieFish II is in residence in Eryn's aquarium).

Third: tulip from back garden.

Later: Eryn with the Snowdrift Crab Poppa got for her two years ago.

Later still: Collin, happily playing with his baby gym, even with me flashing a bright light in his face.

Let's Go Fly A Kite

Scooter will undoubtedly blog his and Eryn's geocaching adventure from yesterday, but I wanted to post a couple of pictures from her first kite flying experience. Well, her first involved running around the back yard a lot trying to get her Cars kite into the air, because I bought it early in the day when it was quite windy, but by the time we got home, there was almost no breeze.

On the way to Oak Terrace East ark to meet Scooter and Eryn with a picnic dinner, I realized it was perfect kite-flying weather, but I had left E's kite at home. A quick trip through Walgreen's, and I had a new $4 kite: a toucan with "Real Wing-Flapping Action!" Here are E and S flying "Toucany" (if you're Eryn), or "Kitey" (if you're Scooter and want to mock Eryn's propensity to name everything by adding a "y" to the end of the noun that describes it):

And here is Eryn, already doing advanced kite tricks:
