David bought a new camera (yep, he shouldn't have but we love it!) and we tested it out in Prado Regional Park, which is located in Chino close to our house.

Have I ever told you that there are a lot of farms in Chino? You get to see lots of cows and bulls, sheep, strawberry fields and birds. Whenever I hear the word Chino, it reminds me of The OC; remember Ryan? Haha. We drove by the penitentiary where his brother was at.

These are milking cows, by the way.

Some mornings you can smell the manure even here in Ontario (depending on which direction the wind is blowing). When I first got here I thought it was really gross. Now, I got so used to it that I either don't notice it anymore or even enjoy it ... Does that sound too weird? I don't know, I kind of like the feeling of being in a rural area, surrounded my snow-capped mountains; most of the times, anyway. I do miss living in they city, too, though;  going window shopping and having tea in coffee stores that are not chains ... Oh, well, I guess you can't have it all!

We also stopped by my brother-in-law's house to say hi. I like this photo of Breanne, our youngest niece; she seems to be levitating, hehe. She did get the hopscotch I mailed her and really liked it :).

Hope you all had a nice weekend, too, and are ready to start a new week! ;D

Mili, què lindas instantáneas captaron! Amo a las ardillitas, aunque a algunos les parezcan meros roedores, yo podria pasarme hs mirándolas =)

I've been on the lookout for a new camera, too! It's always an exciting purchase. LOVE the squirrel shot. Those kinds of pictures are always so serendipitous and wonderful.
