"Lord Stanley"

It's that time again !!! The Detroit Red Wings are currently leading the Western Conference Finals 2 games to 0 against the Chicago Blackhawks. THIS is the ultimate prize !!

The Stanley Cup.... a.k.a. Lord Stanley

Baltimore Oriole

My mom has figured out how to attract the Baltimore Oriole to her backyard. Grape jelly. They LOVE it ! These were taken from inside the house with my zoom lens. I can't wait until they start bringing their babies. Hopefully I can catch some pictures of them too !!

Mackinac Island Govenor's Honor Guard

It's that time of year again! My daughter has participated in this program for 2 years (this summer will be her 3rd year) now. I think this is the most wonderful program! Not only does she get to spend a week on this beautiful island, she is working on improving her leadership skills! The girls in this program raise and lower the flags at Fort Mackinaw, answer tourist's questions and do any other service duties as needed. Congratulations Nicole!
