Kitty Cuddles

Today most of the photos are of the cats (yet again!) though I did include one of the backyard. Joelle and Blossom get along so well, and they are so cute when they curl up together. Here there are in the front window.

H20 Fascination

Joelle has a fascination with water (especially water falling from the sink spigot). Here she is "playing" with the water in the kitchen. She discovered that if she licks the spigot, the water will run out for her to try to "catch."

Last Day in Guthrie

The photos from this day are also from our time in Oklahoma. It is the day we buried my dad and the day we flew home, so it was a tough day. These photos are a mix of different places (including shots around Guthrie, the cemetery, and a memorial to my great-great grandfather Inman Page on the campus of Langston University).

Another shot of the house where my dad grew up...

My dad's high school

Various shots of Guthrie tower from down the street

Campus monument in honor of my great-great grandfather, Inman Page, who was the first president of Langston University (a historically black university).

Just before burial...

A while after the ceremony...

Out and About in Guthrie

The photos for today are from all over Guthrie, Oklahoma (my dad's hometown).

Braum's is the local ice cream shop (though it also has other food). I remember Braum's from childhood visits to Guthrie.

Breaux Hall, the building named after my grandfather on the campus of Langston University

On the way to the Meridian Farm (property co-owned by my dad and uncle) in Oklahoma

Guthrie Tower

Honor Park, a tribute to those who have served in the military from Logan County, Oklahoma.  My dad has a brick here (as shown).

Arrival in Guthrie

We arrived in Guthrie the day I took these photos (8/3/10). The first is a photo of the house where my dad grew up and the second is the gas station near our hotel. My sister pointed out the sign and we got a good laugh. If you look closely, you'll see it says, "Lashawnda Williams U Need to Come Pay Me."

Pretty Cloud Formations

When I go "home" (i.e. to Bonita), I tend to go crazy over kitty photos. They're so fun to follow around and capture on "film." Today's photos are a bit of a break from the cat photos...I took these photos over the course of 6 minutes. It always amazes me how fast the colors in the sky change around sunset!

Photo Frenzy

Today is another multi-photo day. In fact, I have quite a few today. I don't feel too bad since I went for so long without posting any photos. Enjoy!
