Campo Sr. Ball Pictures - Moraga May 15,2010

This weekend was my son's senior ball at the San Francisco City Hall. He went with his girlfriend, Ashley, and a bunch of friend's on a bus to it. Before hand we all went to one of the parent's houses to take pictures in their backyard. The dresses these girls were wearing were really incredible... can't even imagine how much some of them cost. But they all seemed to have fun.. here are some of the pictures that I took.

Mother's Day Weekend 5/8/10

What a pretty weekend! I got myself up there Friday night using a couple of Aleve and woke up at the crack of dawn on Saturday to get out and do some weeding. I used the string trimmer to clear weeds by the front gate so that the place doesn't look like it is abandoned. I also did some watering and some work on the back hill where Nick has a couple of sunflowers finally sprouting. I put in an automated water thingy and attached the sprinkler hose to it to water there. I also threw more seeds out to see if we can get something to sprout. Really heavy clay there.. so it will take a tough plant to make it. Here are some strange and ackward pictures from the weekend.. first the wildflowers.
more poppies - they close at night and open when the sun hits them


yellow lupine? never saw it before but it is blooming in my front yard


And now for the bugs... it is that time of the year.. all the bugs are doing bug things....
Have you ever seen a blue caterpillar? A little strange but wait..

These bugs were on my deck - one on top is 4 inches and the one on bottom is 2. No idea what they are but pretty sure I know what they were doing.

I got some water hyacinths from my friend at work and snuck to the neighbor's pond to throw them in. It is at the corner of my street and is not technically on my property but I worry about it. When I got there I saw all the tadpoles of the California tree frogs that have been making so much noise.

Back to work tomorrow... Hope this strange windy then sunny then rainy weather makes up its mind soon!

May 1st Crab Feed in Fresno

I went to my parent's house last weekend and to a Kiwani's crab feed on Saturday night. It was fun with a pirate theme, auction and about 1200 people....









I am going to try and head up to Mokehill today but my back is really hurting and not sure if I can drive that far....
