views from the deck...and other photos

One of our favorite things about living here is the lovely views we have. Our front deck looks out over a valley, and we can watch glorious sunsets or random wildlife. It was rainy much of last week, but on Friday evening the sun came out for a few minutes. It was still raining a bit (the devil was beating his wife), but Sarah went out on the deck (it's covered) to enjoy the bit of sunshine. Suddenly I heard her excitedly exclaim, "Mommy, it's a rainbow!" Nelson headed out with the camera and got a couple of shots.

You can just barely see it in this photo, but it was actually a double rainbow on Friday.

On Sunday, we got another photo opportunity for a photo shoot off the deck. We have seen deer several times here, but Nelson was able to get some pictures of our visitors on Sunday evening.

Finally, a couple of older shots. These were taken at my grandmother's. Sarah loves to play photographer, and that's what she's doing here.

To close, a picture of Natalie. :)
