Happy Memorial Day!

Ok so i promise to get a better picture of this bird later but for now its as good as its going to get!lol... but i LOVE my new apartment because there are SO many more animals around such as blue jays, cardinals, butterflies, etc! I am going to take a walk around sometime this week and try and capture some more... granted this one is a little out of focus but i was SO excited to see it! I am a nature feen and thrive when i see such beautiful creatures!
And you all know how much i DEARLY love clouds! Which we saw a LOT of this weekend... luckily it waited to rain once we were either asleep or inside for the night... Saturday night it was rather enjoyable to watch the storm roll in from the pool & watch everyone CLEAR out of the pool once they saw lightening & my cousin & i decided that we would become storm chasers, lol. We are crazy but sane. I LOVE storms because you see the world in a different light... It can be so beautiful in all its darkness.
My mom had set up for my Aunt & Uncles B-day party with punch balls & mini recorders! It was kind of a blast from the past party because both my Aunt & Uncle are in the midst of turning the big 5-0!
Here is Miss Gertrude looking out off the porch.... I always wonder with these kind of moments what she must be thinking. Is she thinking what good of a life she has? Or when can she get away? Honestly do they have the same thoughts that us humans have or are they real simple?
Below is the birthday cake we got for the party! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors!! Granted my favorite color is green and we didnt even plan for it! & i must say that i also LOVE butter cream frosting! Deliciouso!!!
So... my Memorial Day was pretty uneventful... spent sometime by the pool, watched a few movies, & now posting this blog. I must say not REAL excited about going back to work after having 3 days off but it was a really nice break & i am ready to hit the books tomorrow!
Thanks to all of you fallen soilders & your loved ones, if it wasn't for you i most likely wouldn't be here sharing my photos!
Happy Memorial Monday!

nice shot of the building.

as delicious as that cake must have been due to the ample amount of icing, it hurts my eyes.
