Quail Snow Angels

November 27, 2010

One of the quail obviously miscalculated its ability to walk on snow and sunk into it. Flapping its way out of the situation caused a beautiful snow angel – bird style!

Morgan’s Wonderland – A Special Needs Special Place

November 6, 2010

Inspired by my friend Rob’s Facebook status today about Special Education Week, I decided today had to be the day I shared an old article I ran across the other day. I had saved it because I wanted to share it with friends whose new baby has spina bifida. It is Ticket to Ride in the October 4th People Magazine.

Because I know several families with special needs kids, the article struck me as very special. Here was a dad who could do something – and DID it – to make the world a better place for not only his own special needs daughter Morgan, but for others as well.

Gordon and Maggie Hartman created Morgan’s Wonderland in San Antonio, Texas. It is a place where kids can ride a train, a carousel, a swing or they can experience sensory activities such as the interactive music garden – all independent of their physical or mental abilities. Actually it is even better than that because special needs adults can also have these great experiences – maybe even for the first time in their lives.

ABC News ran a special report American Heart: Spreading Joy to Special Kids about the new park that opened last April 2010. Here is the vision for a park for special needs people as documented by Gordon Hartman in its conceptual phase.

The hours, pricing and directions are here.

Tonight’s Sunset in Long Beach Was Gorgeous! Photos Here!

November 5, 2010

I’ve been home sick with a cold for two days. Grandpa Ron has been taking care of me! Aw! He brought me lunch and dinner. What a sweety. But then about 10 minutes ago he calls and says “Go quick outside and enjoy the beautiful sunset!” So I grabbed the camera and ran to the end of our street. Snap! Snap! Snap! Hurry, before it’s gone! Now it’s dark! BUT – here are the photos for you to see that sunset, too! It is low tide so the water is low along the beaches but there are still some nice reflections! Was great to enjoy the sunset! 🙂

Enjoy!
