My cousin and her husband graciously gave us a couple of beautiful bedrooms for the many nights we stayed in the Sacramento area. Since returning home to north Texas I've greatly missed the cool night breeze that comes in through the windows. They have owned this home in one of the small communities that surround Sacramento proper for many moons. It sits on a little less than one acre of land. Their little piece of paradise is a sanctuary for wildlife in the middle of the city and gave my long lens a good workout. I rarely went out to the yard to relax without my 'good' camera. (aka not my phone)
I took this shot out the window of our bedroom. You can see the outdoor kitchen/patio area built by my cousin's husband. To the left you can also see the porch of the little house he built for his daughter and two grandsons. He's a talented guy for sure!
thirsty (very smart) deer,
Aren't they beautiful?
My cousin was not thrilled about these black and white visitors, there were 5 or 6 of them that wandered out of the woods!
SuperDave and I enjoyed our time with my Uncle Jim (my Dad's brother) and the rest of my Cali relatives. I'm truly blessed to have a husband that loves my family.
We celebrated our Independence with food and fireworks!
This is the most complete shot I got of the family on our trip. It's missing about six relatives (and a few dogs)
I hope you enjoy seeing the animals as much as we did.
Much love and laughter,
