Wordless Wednesday – Totally random Friday photos #ww

a turtle in our driveway

Gorgeous turtle that crawled out of the ditch looking for water. We re-homed him in the creek down the road.

motorcycle ride

Hubby got out the 1974 Goldwing. We took it for a short test drive up the road. Ahhh!


Such a silly girl!

optical illusion

The kids were messing around with optical illusion photos. I have more to share later!

Last Friday was fun!

    Whats up with those silly turtles? always tying to get somewhere on the road? gonna get squashed! you did your good deed for the week :) I still get a little whimpy when it comes to cycles… both times I have been on one I ended up with an booboo… does your son get to drive it yet?

    • 31

      The turtles are everywhere out her in the boonies! I’m a bit wimpy about the bike too, I didn’t even go for a ride last year. I know i wasn’t wearing my helmet int his photo but I ALWAYS do when we go anywhere. We just putted up the road 1/4 mile to test it out this time so that’s why I wasn’t wearing one! My son has NOT had a chance to drive yet. I think we are all scared lol! I’m going to have to get out there and sit int he car with him in the driveway and go over his book while I get used to the idea :P

    I totally love the turtle one, they are one of my favorite animals. Thanks for rehoming him in a safe place.
    The kids look like they had a great time with the perspective photos.
