Autumn Leaves

As the sun was coming up I snapped a few shots of the early morning light hitting the leaves of the apricot tree.

Weekend Activities

It's been an eventful weekend. First Robin and I spent most of Friday putting plastic on the roof of the house. It's a temporary measure until next year when we can put on a new roof. We really want a metal roof. Last winter we found several places where the water dripped and this will solve those problems for this coming winter.
Here are some pictures of the result of our efforts:

Here's the house from the front -

Here's a look at the roof in the back of the house -

Finally, the back over the patio -

Then Saturday we celebrated Brighton's 5th birthday with a small party.

Here's a picture of the Superman / Spider-Man ice cream cake -

A really pleased young man -

We also included LaRue in the celebrations since she and Brighton have the same birthday. She received a few presents from Robin and Emily and from me.
