Life has slowed down a bit since making it back home from our travels.  On this particular day, we headed to our neighborhood park for a quick swing and slide down the BIG slide. Our littlest has begun riding her tricycle more and more.  I think she will be taking off in no time!  

Another thing we saw at the park: BEES!  It is always a pleasure of mine to shoot still lifes of plants, insects, and animals.  This vine first attracted me because of its heart shaped leaves.  As I got closer, I saw these hardworking bees dancing around in the pollen.  They were kind enough to let me photograph them.  (No person was stung during this encounter!)
