Longhorns and Cowboys, Dewey, Oklahoma

Dewey had their Western Heritage Parade and Wild West Show last weekend. 
I thought this little team of donkeys and wagon were adorable!

Opps, they were getting a little out of hand .....

especially since we were at eye level...

Bartlesville, Indian Summer Festival

Bartlesville is host an inter tribal Indian Art show and Pow Wow in each year in September.  I always like to go and it is a good opportunity to see friends who I don't bump into on an everyday basis.  It is very colorful and this year the weather was really hot, but no rain so that was good.




The Princesses were all so very beautiful in their native dress


I love the fancy dancers!

Sweetest of Babes

I took this photos yesterday of this brother and his little sister....they are the cutiest little ones!
 I asked him if he could kiss his sissy and he said NO!

hopefully he doesn't push her in the water....  LOL!

but he did....   cute aren't they?

I asked him if he could look at the camera and so did his mom...he said, NO!
but he did...

This is a couple of proud grandparents and they should be!

Sweet Babes

Got a photo of the family all together this evening.  There was another fawn with them but I don't know who he belongs to!

There are even more hummingbirds feeding this week than before. They must be in the numbers of a hundred or more.  I just can't believe it!  They are so much fun to watch and so cute!
Here is a male Ruby Throat Hummingbird.
The males are harder to photograph because they don't sit still as long as the females do, and there aren't as many of them.

They are really hard to photograph because they move so fast and are so small

I have used up about 10 lbs of sugar this week alone feeding them!

 Usually they only have one to two birds on a feeder, now they are usually 6 or more birds on a feeder.  I have 8 feeders around the yard.  They seem to like this one the best that hangs right outside the window by my desk.  

This little one hit the glass of the window and knocked the sense out of herself.    I picked her up before Jackie could nail it and I hope it recovered.  I placed it by the Yew bush outside the fence. Sometimes they do recover and sometimes they don't if they get a bad injury.  We have only lost 2 this summer that I know of due to hitting the windows.  It just hurts my heart when it happens....
