Scout & Misty – 7 weeks old

The kittens had a vet appointment to check their health and make sure they were A-OK after the transition from outside in the backyard to the inside of the house. Misty, the big sister, weighed 1.5 lbs and Scout weighed 1.2 lbs. They did have some parasites but overall they are happy and healthy!

They continue to chase things on sticks but have learned that boxes are extremely fun to play in!

They also love to play in the folds of the bedspread. Misty had been the aggressor at first, but Scout seems to be the one to hunt Misty down lately.

And they are still the cutest little baby kittens!

Fireworks x2! – 2014

I was lucky enough to get fireworks two days in a row this year! Chesterfield county does them at the fairgrounds so I watched those on the 4th. There is also a fireworks show downtown on the 3rd, but because of the threat of the tropical storm, they postponed the show until the 5th.

These are from the 4th.

I have never seen the show downtown and thought the war memorial would be a good place to see them, but I left the house too late and the bridges were closed off, so I went to the floodwall, which is under one of the bridges. I didn’t know where the fireworks would actually be coming from and the bridge definitely ended up getting in the way (that’s the black bar in some of the shots). But I now know the memorial will probably be a good vantage point, I’ll just need to leave early next time.
