Pamela & Sebastian

My daughter Pamela and 4-year old grandson Sebastian came to visit! We had a wonderful time!

Sebastian and Bill
Bill and Sebastian had fun playing games on my new smartphone.

I made sure I had lots of puzzles and toys for Sebastian - including a new bike. It was just his size and he had fun riding it to the playground.

Sebastian loves to have his picture taken - especially when I tell him I'm going to send it to daddy so he can see what's he's doing.

What trip to Colorado would not be complete without a visit to Garden of the Gods!

Then we headed for the airport where we had a surprise for Pamela - flying lessons!

Ready for takeoff!

After Pamela landed, it was Bill's turn for a lesson - while Pamela took pictures of the mountains, the Broadmoor Hotel, Garden of the Gods, the Waldo Canyon burn scar and the "Roy Rogers Memorial."

 Our beautiful mountains have taken a beating this year.

Bill took this shot of his daughter's neighborhood.

Another day we went to Helen Hunt Falls where Pamela and Sebastian climbed much higher than Bill and I climbed. We had a super visit!

Back at home, the hummingbirds are back! These are Broad-tailed Hummingbirds heading south from their nesting sites to Central and South America.

 This morning we had a noisy visitor - a Scrub Jay.

Now I know where my flowers are going!!
