How many Owls do you see????

Sooo, something weird has been going on
lately with our good friend Owlie ...

... and it seems to have started
after reading this book ...

... but we began to notice slight
differences in how Owlie looked ...

... and where Owlie liked to hang out ...

... and how much Owlie kept getting closer and 
closer to peeking inside our house!!!
And then it happened ...

... there are TWO Owlies!?!?!? 
Did Owlie get married?!?!?

But wait, this little guy looks a lot smaller, really 
like a little baby ... did Owlie make babies?!?!?

Did Owlie make multiple baby owls!?!?!?!?

Twin baby owls!!!

Eureka, that's it!!! 
Owlie did get married and had two little babies!!!

We shall name them Owlita (Owlie wife, on the right), 
Lou (on the left), and Lola (in the center)!!!

Can you see them all peaking at you from up there???

Well, at least now we don't have to worry about our
packages sitting outside alone all day anymore!!!

Barn Drama!!!!

"Time to go on my grand mountainous desert ride, 
atop my million dollar speckled Persian princess."

"Where is my simpleton barn help. 
She's never around when I need her. 
Kimmy! Kimmy, where are you?!??!"

"Oh, sorry Issy. I found some carrots growing in the field.
They sure were a hearty snack. I'm a'coming now, ma'am!"

"Issy has always been on the wrong side of everything, 
from work to relationships. Even though she had feelings 
for Todd, the horse-shoer, she felt invisible whenever Ronda
was there, always showing off that fancy mechanical leg of hers."

Barn Drama!!!!

Lazy Sleepytime Dayzzz ...


 Each and every summertime day ...
 
 ... everyone keeps things at a super lazy level, 
just lying around, all throughout the house ...

 ... Emery crashes right where she plays ...

 ... with Avery keeling over, after a long wrestling bout ...

 ... and then some time later, another nap usually happens ... 
zonked out asleep, deep in Mommy and Daddy's bed!!!

Then after some dinner, 
formal nighttime sleep is coming near ...

 ... along with a Mommy ride ...

 ... if everything can balance out ...

... then it's up and at 'em ...

 ... and piggybacking we shall go ...

 ... all the long way down the hallway ...

 ... and nosedive into bed!!!

Yep, we really do this each and every summer day!!!
