July 2: The pleasant surprise was good chinese food, and the kids sleeping over at Grandma's -- and, you know, other stuff.
My favorite thing about this picture is that the left piece of the fortune cookie looks like a nose. :)
July 3: Cross Brigham Young with Uncle Sam and Farmer Brown, throw in a little Jimmy Buffett for good measure, and what do you get?
By gosh, you get America!
July 4: On your birthday, you should be able to do whatever you want -- and Emma wanted to spin around in the sunshine, in her new tutu.
Truthfully, Emma's birthday is July 3, but we were busy celebrating the Nation's birthday on the 3rd (because that's when all the parades and fireworks were), so we celebrated Emma's birthday on July 4.
Or something like that.
Now I have a headache.
What a weird year.
July 5: Augusta and June, my five year old twin nieces, in town from Georgia. They're the very picture of innocence right?
These are All Star Wrestling-kill and clean their own chicken-trying to catch and cook a squirrel-Crimson Tide lovin'-absolutely fearless-southern fried maniacs.
But they're so dang cute.
(And I'm June's boyfriend)
July 6: I love my daisies almost as much as I love my tulips.
July 7: Emma and I on the Sky Ride at Lagooon (a local amusement park), looking very cool.
Emma just about lost her shoes on this ride, and I nearly dropped my camera.
For a very slow ride, it was rather breathtaking.
July 8: I hate Play-Doh.
I know it's fun, and I loved it as a kid, but as an adult...
Eventually it all gets mixed into one big gray blob, and then it dries out and breaks down into smaller and smaller crumbs which get everywhere. Not to mention the stuff that gets mashed into the carpet and the upholstered furniture (even though EVERYONE knows it's ONLY supposed to played with at the table!)
Other than that, I have no strong feelings on the subject.
Did you know that they have a Play-Doh scented cologne?!
(Whoever THEY are...)
