Not the Geico gecko
We have these little guys hanging out all around our house this summer and almost every night when we take the dogs out we'll find one on the back door. According to wiki, this is a house gecko - so named because they hang out on houses in search of insects attracted to porch lights.

A cold treat on a hot summer evening

Just hanging out

I love watching all of the primates at the zoo but the chimpanzees are always my favorite. Something about those eyes - they just look so wise and soulful to me.

Playing with the penguins

We took the kids to the Dallas Zoo today and it was unbearably hot but the penguins were able to keep cool in their pool.

Summer Fun collage
I haven't had a chance to take any photos this week so I figured tonight I'd play with photoshop.

I took this pic specifically for Jayce since like most boys he totally loves all things related to tractors.

Target had a bunch of their summer toys on sale this week and we picked up a couple of waterguns for the kids - you know, Richard and Jayce. :D

Little Momma
Maggie loves her babies. It's a word we hear very often from her little mouth - bebe, bebe, BEBE!!!!, bebe ni-ni, shhhhhhhh

The look

This is a look I frequently get when I actually get Maggie to make eye-contact with me and my camera.

The chase is on
I think she would follow him to the end of the earth. This was taken this evening about 8:30 so it was rather dark and there is a lot of motion blur. I love the swish of her skirt and the movement of her hands - both very, very Maggie.

High Humidity Hair

Two for the price of one tonight. I just love Maggie's curls and the insane humidity we've had lately just brings them out.
