We're Baaaaaaaack!

Uploaded: April 03, 2009


Spring in my backyard is one of my favorite places to be! We share our picnic dinners on the deck with the most delicate creatures our God lovingly created. They are the extreme opposite end of His amazing handiwork to His creation of the massive, majestic mountains I love so much.
