My father in law is an avid gardener, and he has these flowers in his garden called
“naked ladies”. The scientific name for them is Amaryllis belladona and they are sometimes known as belladonna lilies, but we all refer to them as the naked ladies. LOL. They only bloom for a few days each year, and my father in law really loves them. I have tried each year to capture a really awesome photo of them, but this year I think I finally succeeded. I got up REALLY early (6:00 AM mind you!) to be at
their house by 7:00 so I could get that awesome morning light. I think it was totally
worth it. I also really like the pic I got of my mother in law’s black eyed susans.
After I got home, I fixed French toast for dh and dd for breakfast (with some of FIL’s
fresh eggs, yum! Then we went to a small kids festival that a local bank puts on every year at a local park. They had the usual safety stuff, K seemed to have fun.
The coolest part for the Mama though was the Lifeflight helicopter. We have seen it before at an airshow, it’s kinda neat to look inside it and stuff. (Remember I love everything planes, and space and stuff). But the cool thing today was, we were there when the helicopter took off!
They were asking everyone to step back a safe distance, and I did, at first, LOL I wanted
some clear shots of it as it took off , and being short, there were people’s heads in my way. So I walked over by an EMT and started shooting. He started to say something,
but he looked at my camera (I had my big lens on, LOL) and he just smiled.
It was so COOL when they started up the engine, the wind was blowing, it was a total rush let me tell ya! The pics do not so it justice! Now I cannot wait for next year’s airshow at the base. (The first female Thunderbird will be there, woo hoo!)
Ok, sadly there is nothing scrapbook related about this post other than a few pics.
Oh wait, I am gonna host the Midnight scrap tonight (12 am EST) because Miss Jodi is on vacation, so if you are a night owl and you want to scrap, come join me. I have not done a page ALL WEEK LONG, eeeekkkk!
