Dinosaur Eggs

While exploring the backyard today, I came across something very interesting.... Dinosaur eggs! I kid you not. Here, have a look for yourself!!

...but then I took a closer look and noticed this strange stuff falling from the sky.

Catching Rain

What is this wet stuff? Could it be...

Raining Sunshine

Sure, it makes the skies gloomy and my days a little less exciting.... but we do need the stuff. This is the DESERT for cryin' out loud. We can always use the rain.

I must admit, I'm actually glad to have something besides a cactus to take a picture of!

The rain can be quite beautiful. Especially at night.

...and the longer you leave your windshield wipers off... the more the world begins to look like a giant watercolor painting! (don't worry, I was parked in a parking lot.)
