Earliest Easter of our Lifetime

Yesterday was the earliest Easter of our lifetime- and probably yours as well (unless you were living in 1913- the last time Easter was this early.) The next time Easter falls on March 23rd? The year 2160. (source)

Great Afternoon

We enjoyed a great afternoon at Mr. Fred and Ms. Ruth Mouzon's today. We enjoyed seeing Ms. Susan Henderson (sorry we missed seeing you, Owen!) and Stephen, Hazel, and Roman Borys. Hazel and Susan did a great job preparing for an Easter egg hunt for the kids as well as preparing the Easter decorations. Mr. Fred also made some lovely cooked snacks for everyone. It has been a long while since we have seen everyone- it was a very nice reunion. Enough of me blabbing- here are the photos! :)

Really Big Fish

Last year I posted an entry of some big catfish that we were catching off the dock at Bay Village on the Tennessee River. I just read an interesting article on the National Geographic website where they are researching the world's "monster" freshwater fish. Here is the link. The pictures are interesting.

Here is a link to a video of a trout that grows up to 200 lbs and lives in Mongolia.

Added Video of Green Lynx Spider to You Tube

I just added this video of a Green Lynx Spider guarding her nest and hatchlings. The female Green Lynx spider will guard the nest until she dies. I also updated my Green Lynx Spider entry on my nature blog with this video:

Don't Give Up

The following video was made of Sascha trying to learn to skate on Monday, March 10th at Sebastian and Lexie's birthday party. I like the fact that she never quit smiling during the whole time- even though she was strugglin mightily. She sure is a brave little 2 year old. :) On Thursday, I took some photographs of her skating without assistance- even with skates that were probably 3 sizes too large. I like her gumption! :)

At Joe Wheeler St. Park Resort

Sebastian, Kelsey, Sascha, Haley and I ate Sunday lunch at the Joe Wheeler St. Park Resort. They have a great Sunday afternoon buffett. After eating lunch we went outside and the kids played on the swings. Here are some of the photos:

Next Generation of Canon Camera Users

Sebastian and Kelsey enjoyed going out and taking photos with me this past weekend. It was a beautiful weekend here in North Alabama for getting out and taking photos. Sascha also enjoyed seeing herself after her picture was taken by Kelsey.
