Follow Up Photos

A few pictures to follow up my previous post...

Hayden snapped this one of Emma and I on her very first merry-go-round ride, and I solemnly promised him his photo would make the blog.  It's all about fame and fortune.  Or just fame.  Or just getting credit for photography skills on a blog.

A tisket, a tasket, can you guess the purpose of this basket??

It attaches to one of these!!

We watched the balloon glow from across a pond, and I loved the reflections in the water. This is when I really wish I knew photoshop because with the right tweeking I'm sure some of these photos could really be grand.

This was my favorite balloon.

A wild band of cousins.  One of these is the pie thief!  

Arm and face painting is such a country fair thing!  This sweet lady had the booth next to Scooter's at the balloon festival and she offered to paint all the kids arms in exchange for a homemade supper.
Too cool.

Oh, Brooke, Betty told me about your mom. I'm so sorry, I hope she is feeling better or at least medicated. I had to giggle when you wrote about your need to talk a blue streak. I am the same way. Wish I was there to listen and keep you company. Please let your mom know that we are all praying for her and you as well.
Have a uneventful 4th, you deserve it. Kathy

I'm glad to get the update on your mom. I've been praying for you guys this week. Call if you find yourself needing to chat - I'll be glad to listen.
