The Great Brown Hunter

Wrinkles used to be quite the hunter. She would regularly bring me dead rabbits and dead birds. She even brought a roadrunner once :.-(
She's fought coyotes, snakes, a great dane (and lost) in the past. But lately she seems to be content hunting lizards in the backyard. She's getting on in years and tires easily.(like me haha)

Whenever I go out to water the flowers she comes out with me and goes right into hunting mode. Then, when I am done (about 10 minutes) she is exhausted and comes into the airconditioned house and naps for about 5 hours!!

Most of the time, I dont even think there are lizards there!Resting after Not Finding any Lizards

She seems to be happy though.

Maybe she will find one later.

Time for a nap.

Oh and Hi Mary! Welcome to my blog. Haha Sounds weird. But, Yay I like comments. Now there is you AND Kayla!

Sweet 60's Homecoming

Saturday was a busy day for Bailey. She got up and went to Challenger Park for the Hillathon.
After running up and down the hill 10 times she came home, took a half hour nap, showered and went to Cheerforce for a 5 hour practice. Then she came home and showered again and was off to school for the Homecoming Dance. I think she looks very 60s. (and yes, she is wearing shorts under that VERY short dress)

I got her these boots from Payless for 10$. The calves were too big so I sewed them smaller.

The total outfit was 40$ including the jewelry. Notice the peace sign earrings.

Royal vs Simi X-C

Royal's first league meet was Thursday against Simi HS.

Dylan ran first at 3:30pm. It was close to 100 degrees.

He didnt get to run varsity because Hayden had beat him by 10 seconds at the last race.

These are his new racing flats.

Because it was soo hot, Dylan

Poured water over his head

before the race.

At the start line.

At the first part of the race Thomas was right there with Dylan.

Then I think his name is Collin, passed Dylan. Sean was saying Collin would win but Christian was betting on Dylan.

But in the end Dylan finished STRONG. and Won the race.This is the first X-C race he has won. Go Dylan!

It is so stinkin hot here. Close to 100 degrees all stinkin week. At least my flowers are still alive. Yay flowers!

Now I have to go to the X-C meet. I hope it cools down to ...say ..90 degrees before they have to run. Later.

Where Did Tues. and Wed. Go?

Ok, Ok I have been busy. Really. I am repainting kitchen cabinets after ruining them 2 years ago. Yes it has been that long. I am slow.

Anywhoooo I have those few pictures of Dylan from the Woodbridge race on Sat. ...

Here he is relaxing since he got there at 1pm and his race doesnt start until 9:35pm.

Since I rarely am in a picture with Dylan, I got his 2nd mom, Vicki Garza.

And his brother (that Bailey and Kayla never wanted) ChristianThen it got dark. I cannot take good pictures when it is dark. I am sure that it is possible, but I do not know how to do that. Dylan was dissapointed that I did not get any shots of him running but that is just how it is. : (

This shot is just to prove again that Dylan needs a haircut. Haha.

He was really nervous before running Sweepstakes. All of Royals varsity runners were nervous. It is a huge race and most of them were sick.

Here they are either discussing strategy, admiring each others fashion sense, or praying to not fall. I dont know.And this is how my pictures come out at nighttime. I think it makes him look extra fast. Dont you think?

Well Royal didnt place well. At the mile mark, Dylan was in second to last place but by the end, he beat 8 guys. Dylan improved last year's time by about 30 seconds. So for being sick or not, I think he did great.
