I've been sort of missing in action for the past couple of days, but it's been another hectic week and weekend. Thursday night we finally went to the fair, which, good grief, when did the fair get so expensive?? Wrist bands to ride all the rides are $18 a piece. And while that seems ridiculously expensive, it's still the best option since tickets were $1 a piece and the ferris wheel alone was 4 tickets. Here are a few photos, just because:
I promise that they were both having a good time, even though they look pretty serious in these photos. There was a fair amount of arguing over who got to choose the next ride, plus the want, want, want of every trinket and gew gaw on the fairway, but still we had a good time. I managed to capture this shot of the evening sky and it turned out much better than I thought it would.
Yesterday was the family reunion that I'm now in charge of. This is my third year and I have to say it wast he best one yet. In recent years the attendance had fallen off, particularly among my age group, but this year we were the largest group and I was thrilled. I saw some cousins that I hadn't seen in several years and they all brought their children. It took them a little while to warm up, but it wasn't too long before they were all playing together. THAT's the reason I took over the reunion, to ensure that my children know what it means to be part of a bigger family.
And today I'm home with Punkin. Her school is closed today for a teacher work day, so we're just going to hang out. Just us girls.
