mother's day

We decided to do a little bit of an unconventional mothers day here. So we went to Custer state park where we saw this little fellow eating a cracker tossed from the car in front of us. He got as close as i've ever seen a wild prarie dog-about 3 feet from our car. Now i'm not going to say he's truly wild, because he knows that food often comes from the cars that drive past his home.
This guy and his family were stopping traffic also, they look pretty raggety this time of year but all 8 that we saw last year are all still there after the hard winter we had.

Talk about your beggars! We had 5 of these friendly fellows trying to climb into the car with us. Did you know they like dill pickles? They ate the last couple from our picnic lunch.

And we went to Bear Country. These 2 were acting like mine-sneak attack as soon as somebody turned their back.

And we went to Reptile Gardens. Not as exciting as usual because its still too cool for most of the reptiles to be outside.
I have not sewn for a month, things here kinda blew up after easter. Randy got shipped to Afganistan, recital stuff is taking up a lot of time, all the typical end of the school year stuff, getting the kids ready to spend most of the summer at Grandma's, and trying to decide if i'm staying here or joining the kids(i'm staying). Just too much to think about for a while. But, not that Randy's gone and recital will be over this coming weekend I am hoping things will slow down soon.
