Doing a little cleaning, a (very) little organizing around the ol' computer, and discovered a crazy collection of photos of stuff the Authorial Family did this summer. I got nothing else but insane workloads going on right now, so bring on the photos!
We explored sidewalk art (which, clearly, is also wearable art):
We got new windows in the kitchen--after the old ones literally fell off the house. Whoops!
And discovered, in the process, that the kitchen used to have really* ugly wallpaper:
We hit a County Fair:
Does anyone else find the name of this kiddie ride hilarious? Just me? Nevermind. Carry on.
We explored tanks:
had a front-row seat for a demolition derby:
and ate funnel cakes:
Oh, yeah. That's the good stuff.
We played hard-core family mini-golf:
'Hard-core' meaning, of course, nearly beaten by a five-year-old boy who kept getting distracted by traffic:
I edged him out by six points. HA!
We toured Lincoln's home, and saw dioramas with squash plants that were about a quarter the size of my pinkie finger nail:
And I debated making incredibly small, accurate miniatures when I grow up. Then I decided to stick with cowboys. (Seriously, the trees are smaller than my hand.)
We saw this sign as part of a display:
And spent the next half hour cracking E-Harmony jokes.
I wore the hat in Lincoln's home. So there.
Not in his Presidential Museum.
Gater is . . .
I mean, really.
How is he even doing that?
We battled ants:
and fleas, mosquitoes, and fruit flies.
And then, when summer ended?
The Kid--my baby--grew up and went to kindergarten.
