Backyard visitor

Tyler took his first bike ride today since having the casts removed. He is still using training wheels (or should I say training wheel since only one is ever on the ground), but hopefully by spring he will be riding without them.

Our house backs up to a wash and on the other side is a neighbor's backyard. As Marshall and Tyler were just approaching the side of the house toward the wash they noticed a bobcat in the wash. We all stood still for a moment but the bobcat, which was soon joined by another just laid down and was chilling out in the wash. We watched them for awhile and then went on with the walk. As we were headed back to the house we notice one of the bobcats was resting comfortably on the neighbor's wall.
I was afraid to get too close but Marshall was braver and got these great pictures!
