Rifle Falls and Fish Hatchery

Rifle Falls 

Fish Hachery

As far as waterfalls go,

Rifle Falls

is one of

the more impressive ones arround.

If it weren't located

on the otherside

of the mountains,

we would make more frequent visits.

The girls repeatedly

request a return visits.

This last visit

we were able to squeeze in a hike to the fish hachery.  What do you think, was it worth the extra effort?

The Butterfly Pavilion Butterfrlies and Blossoms

The Butterfly Pavillion

Butterflies and Blossoms
Bob Carlisle Lyrics
"Butterfly Kisses"

There's two things I know for sure:
She was sent here from heaven and she's daddy's little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes 
and I thank god for all of the joy in my life
Oh, but most of all

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair; 
"Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried."
Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet 16 today
She's looking like her mama a little more everyday
One part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world.
But I remember.....

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer; 
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you, Daddy, 
But if you don't mind I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time."
Oh with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right 
to deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night.

All the precious time
Like the wind, the years go by.
Precious butterfly.
Spread your wings and fly

She'll change her name today.
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away.
Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said 
"I'm not sure-I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
She leaned over

Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk me down the aisle, Daddy-it's just about time."
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy? Daddy, don't cry"
Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right.
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses

I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is.
I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses...

Lyrics found at  AZLYRICS

"Butterfly Kisses" is another

of my favorite

Butterfly songs.

Such beautiful creatures

that spend their days

flitting from one beautiful

aromatic resting place

to another

in search

of the sweet

tasting nectar

that lies
