More Kitty Pictures

He's getting bigger now, and seems to be doing well, other than being completely spoiled.

Toad and Mantis

We went to a friend of my wife's farm in Fleming County today, so I'll have lots of stuff to post from that trip. Here are two of them.

Cleaning off my camera card, I found these shots that I took at my mother's house a few weeks ago.

Move Over Phelps

What do my daughter and Michael Phelps have in common (besides both being great swimmers)? They shared front page space in our local newspaper last week. Here's a shot of the page (click on the image for a much bigger view).

Birthday Party Boy

His birthday isn't officially until Monday, but today was Reece's 4th Birthday Party. Here he is in his race helmet, as he had a Speed Racer themed party. Lisa did another awesome cake. You can see it over on her cake blog.

Kitten Update

The kitty is still doing well. We took him (it is a he, after all) to the vet to be checked out, and everything looked fine. He's still eating from a bottle (see the second photo) and is starting to get more playful, so it looks like everything is going to work out.

Kitten Rescue

We found this little guy (or girl, I'm not sure) under a thick patch of ivy next to our house after hearing him meowing. It's a tiny kitten, way too little to be away from it's mother, so we're trying to feed him from a medicine dropper and hope he pulls through okay. After a day, he seems to be doing better than when we found him.

More Infrared

These were shot with my Hoya R72 infrared filter, which I still haven't completely gotten the hang of using.

Two From Today

One of Kenzie and one of Reece. I had to do some Photoshop work on Kenzie to remove the chocolate cake from around her mouth. Reece is sporting his new haircut he got on Friday.

Morning Light

I like the way the light from the rising sun hit this one particular plant, but left the others in the shadows.

First Day of School

Each year, I always try to take a photo of Kenzie on her first day of school. Here's this year's, as she started 4th grade today.

Watermelon Game

Kenzie's swim team had a pool party Monday evening, and they played this really cool game where they divided into two teams, then threw a greased watermelon into the deep end of the pool, and each team tried to get it back to their side, and there were apparently few other rules. It was a blast to watch.

Getting Ready

Kenzie took part in another Triathlon this weekend at Beech Fork Lake in Lavalette, W.Va. Here she is getting her goggles on before the swim portion.
