334/365 Merry-go-rounds!

The Palm Springs Living Desert Zoo & Gardens Merry-go-round

I think it was the highlight of the day.
We are home but I haven't had time to pick up my camera today - so a filler from last week.

332/365 Welcome Home

From hot sun to this. Winter storms, cancelled flights, unexpected hotel stays and long, long line ups.
It was just more adventure for the little ones. :)

331/365 Pool Day

This pretty much captures the day. Perfect way to spend American Thanksgiving.

Would much rather spend 30 C without the minus sign in front of it but seems we will be heading into minus country tomorrow.

Not looking forward to finding the car in the airport parking lot with just a couple of sweaters on. Thankful I have my remote start.

330/365 Black Friday Shopping!

This is as close to the crowds of Black Friday shopping that I want to be. Allison and I spent a couple of hours at Forever 21 today pre Black Friday crowds. We had the place to ourselves. :) No lineups for the change rooms!!

329/365 Children's Discovery Museum

Well didn't we have fun today. We spent a several hours at the Children's Discovery Museum. Eva loved being a vet and spent a good chunk of time examining the animals and giving them shots. She kept copious notes of course.

317/365 Tinker-Bell

I love that she is willing to sit for me. Fleeting moments but she will let me take her photo. And now she really wants to see the photos after.

315/365 Lest We Forget

Remembrance Day

In Flanders Fields
John McCrae
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row, 
That mark our place, and in the sky,
The larks, still bravely singing, fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below. 
We are the dead; short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields. 
Take up our quarrel with the foe!
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high!
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

314 Last Remnant

A last remnant of summer in my back yard. I took this photo on Saturday before the deep freeze hit today. That is snow in the background.
I am so thankful for heated seats and a heated steering wheel on my way to work at 7:30 am and home at 6 pm. Minus 11C and it will only get colder.

311/365 Working Girl

I find it quite amusing that without ever seeing me at my desk working, these little girls hop up into my chair, pick up the phone and look like they actually know what they are doing.
And of course never go to work without Kristoff!

310/365 Crazy Hair

I was babysitting the girls today and had to drop something off at the office. They  found the poster with the lady with the "crazy hair" quite hilarious.

306/365 Bridge St

I found so many wonderful gates to yards in the old part of St Augustine.
Some date back over 1-- years I am sure. Loved them all.

305/365 Vast Ocean

The morning we left St Augustine, the temperatures dropped by 20 degrees to 8 C and the wind stirred up quite a storm over the Atlantic. I took this at about 8 am, just after sunrise. It was vicious out there.
I highly recommend that you click on this photo to see it large and to see the detail of this storm blast ocean.
