These flowers always remind me of flies you would use in fly fishing. I find everything around here intriguing. The baby was born on Sunday night. Kessie was in labor 18 hours. He is a tiny little guy. Here are some grandma brag pictures.

He was already smiling. Nothing better than the smell of new babies, except maybe holding new babies.

The kids were so excited to get home and see their new baby brother. I was so excited! Mom is so tired but so happy to not be pregnant.

I love these cactus! They just boggle my mind. We were on a walk and look at this funny thing I saw.

A bird had stuck all of these pyracantha berries on the spines of this cactus. Jody asked what kind of birds we have spotted so far. We have seen a roadrunner, a bright red cardinal. A crazy woodpecker climbing a palm tree making the weirdest noise at every hop. Lots of finches. Two hummingbirds that war over the bird feeder. Huge hawks and ravens and funny grackles. They have smaller bodies and longer tails than the ones at home.

It’s been an interesting trip. I wonder what we will do today? I added this video I took yesterday of these ants I watched in the afternoon.


Here is a video I took yesterday of all of these ants carrying flowers. It went on all afternoon. It made me laugh to watch the ground moving with tiny purple flags.

  1. Kim! Congrats on another beautiful grandbaby! He’s a cutie pie! And you’re such a cute Grammy-pie too.
    Love the photos of the cactus with the berries speared on it, and the video of ants carrying purple flowers is SO COOL! I loved that! What a sight. Did you find the colony where they are storing them? Thanks for listing the birds you’ve been seeing. Such a neat place to be this time of year. Enjoy! (I know you are)
