What an intense hockey game on Sunday! Canada vs. USA for the Olympic gold and Canada won in overtime! I’m not a big fan of hockey, or even the Olympics for that matter, but it was fun and exciting to watch. Canada finished up with the most gold medals won for any country in the history of the Olympics and it all hung on the outcome of the hockey game--- exciting or what? :)
After the the game we headed outside to light up a bonfire and roast wieners and marshmallows. We had tried to get down to the river this weekend but conflicting schedules prevented us from doing that and our backyard was a fine substitute.
We started off with one heck of a big fire.
While we were in the backyard Pops came along and fed the girls. Here he is unrolling a round bale and acting oh so comical, he’s such a ham for the camera. He came over and chatted with us for a bit after he finished feeding.
The girls quickly line up to devour the hay.
The blackened wieners, due to the extreme fire, were scrumptious!
And so were the marshmallows! “Sydney, where’s your manners?”
The weather was beautiful and it stayed quite warm even after the fire started to die down.
The cows and their babies enjoyed the warm day and the great hay!
After everyone had come inside we then watched the end of the closing ceremonies of the Olympics. Quite a “show” with giant mounties, huge beavers, and gigantic hockey players! Well it certainly was Canadian, wasn’t it? LOL
After Hubby and the Kids went to bed I gathered up my tripod and took a few pics of the moon. The clouds around it made for such an eerie sight but I don’t think I did it justice, even with three different lenses, a 2 second timer, tripod, and lots of experimenting with exposure and f/stops. Here’s a couple of shots.
A bit of a close-up.
