Conner gives a thumbs up to a new little restuarant in Temecula called the Spicy Pickle. Fresh bread like you can not imagine, wonderful salads, and of course spicy pickles. Delicious!!! The little waitress was very attentive, friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back.
I got out early to take care of all the little errands that seem to pile up and get put off for photo taking or photo editing. When it is finally D-Day, and I can wait no longer, I do take care of necessities but not without my camera.
My little nephew celebrated his 3rd birthday today. We had great food, family, and fun. The best entertainment was provided by the kids eating humongous cupcakes. Blue frosting does not come off of carpeting very easily. The big blue one landed frosting side down. Oh No!!!
The Pacific Photography Society Meetup Group went to the San Diego Wild Animal Park to visit the Butterfly exhibit. It only lasts a very short time but is well worth the effort to get there. It is kind of magical being in there with them flying all around you and landing right on people. I got several good shots but I really like this one with his wings in motion. This little guy just fluttered, fluttered and fluttered as he ate.
What a wonderful place, The San Diego Botanical Gardens. There are a wide variety of garden types, even a fruit orchard. it is always fun and different from month to month. A great way to spend a day.
Just a snapshot of two great chefs with their wonderful concoctions. Not only were they beautiful but heavenly to eat.
The birds are really active right now. As I was passing the window I heard a knock, knock, knock. When I looked around, there was a Blue Scrub Jay there scolding me for not having any peanuts out. I grabbed my camera but by that time he was gone. These guys were having a very heated discussion though, so I shot them.
We found this wonderful place to take photos but by the time we found it lighting was getting a little low. It could have been great with a tripod but we weren't planning on being out so long. We were just going to shoot a few of the kids.
We decided for Spring Break to take a little outing on the Temecula trolley. We went down to Old Town took the Trolley to the Mall, got some lunch and took the Trolley back to our vehicles. Later we discovered that today was the last day for the Trolley. It is being retired for lack of use and it has really just begun. Too bad! It was a lot of fun, kind of like Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.
Madi helps grandma today by putting some bird seed out. These birdies eat non stop. I don't know how eats like a bird became known as not eating much!! It was so nice of Madi to have on such a flowing dress for grandma's photos.
We did a photo shoot out in a field and this one is Conner wearing grandma's old cowboy hat. A little big on him but fun just the same. He would much rather be behind the camera than in front of it. Not easy to catch him.
After the Birch Aquarium, we went on down to the Children's Beach at La Jolla. This is where all the sea lions hang out. There were lots and lots of them along with pelicans and other types of birds. I loved how this guy looked up at me as if to pose. Most of them were not budging. Very lazy guys.
