young owl up in the clay cliffs above one of the creeks that runs through Lowertown. Mama Great-Horned wasn't too impressed with my desire to photograph them both, but obliged anyway. The walk was part of our Mother's Day celebration, which also included a visit from my dear mom. She helped us in the garden and hung out while Dad cruised down to the border to pick up some parts.
The weekend started off perfectly with a double date -- we got a sitter at our house for the first time ever, and joined Myron and Tracey (also sans kids) at the excellent Victoria Road Bistro. We hang out with them a fair bit, but never without kids...a real treat to connect like normal people and realize that we're still real friends.
