Once again we're off to Virginia to visit our boys, this time to celebrate the 25th birthday of son #1 and the beginning of our wonderful family adventure.
Happy Birthday, Tom!
I haven't been a very diligent blogger lately, so to help make up for that, I wanted to leave photos of some recent visitors to our yard, as viewed through our dusty desert windows (click photos to enlarge):
An antelope squirrel scavenging bird seed on the back patio.
A rare visit from a male black-headed grosbeak, enjoying a snack under the shade of the patio table.
Doves on the back fence, catching up on the morning's gossip.
Out front, little tough guy still guards his territory most afternoons.

Once again I've packed my camera, in hopes of photographing some beautiful Reston flora and fauna this trip. We'll see if my good intentions produce any actual results this time...
Hope you have a great weekend.
