Friday Photo Journal - September 19, 2014

This week brought some excitement our way -thankfully, rather than floods, it came in the form of baby animals, surprise proposals and a hidden jackpot.
On Tuesday the kids were playing in the front yard and a young squirrel kept following them and chirping. The hubs and I went out to see, and sure enough, he kept coming toward us and trying to climb on us. I'd never seen this behavior before! We tried to return him to the tree he came from and kept an eye on him from inside. When the behavior continued the next day, we figured he had been abandoned or lost, and we contacted a local wildlife rescue organization. The women we spoke to actually lives in our neighborhood and was very friendly with the kids. Apparently there were many injured and abandoned animals from last week's storm. :( 
The kids loved the experience and I thought it was pretty cool too. It was a relief to know that "Fuzzy" would be well cared for and eventually released. 
My youngest son, quite the opportunist, managed to scrounge up $24 in change from around the house and felt like he hit the jackpot at the CoinStar machine. :)  Little Miss captured a caterpillar, also named "Fuzzy." And I had the opportunity to photograph a surprise marriage proposal at the beach, right next to King Neptune. All in all, not a bad week.
