something with your town's name on it

Items I neglected to shoot were 'an elephant', 'a childhood memory', and 'something that starts with z...'. I had something in mind for all of these, just didn't get it done. Yet.
Blogger told me a couple of days ago that I had exceeded my upload quota, so I have put off updating my blog. In order to prove to BFJ that there's a problem, I did this whole post - without any problem. Of course.

I saw a quote yesterday on someone's blog to the affect of 'children spell love t-i-m-e,' so when I saw that mine were getting antsy today, I found some things in the closet that had belonged to dear Marie, or g.g., as they called her. (Great-grandma.) Because I know, summer can seem boring while you're in it, and so fleeting later. I taught them Chinese Checkers; I hate to tell you that I won but no one would listen to my strategy recommendations! Then they taught me Pirate Code. And then two looked through all the wonderful marbles while two of us had a nap.

I had the opportunity to drive down to Oklahoma and meet my new niece! My dad and I drove down to my sister's, my mom was already there. We spent the night, and then the three of us left Wednesday to drive home. It was a very short trip and I wish I could have had plenty of time to do a couple different photo shoots, but I had three little boys waiting for me back home. I was very happy to have this little window of time to meet my niece while she's still brand new. Considering I was there less than 24 hours, I did get to hold her a lot, and I got some great pictures, like this one of her holding my mom's finger.
I knitted a fun little photo prop thing that I had seen in some cute pictures, but unfortunately that project did not result in good pictures. I think that there was a lot of variables that I just did not have time to fix.
My dad and I had a lot of fun on the trip south, looking for items on the Photo Scavenger Hunt list. I got out at a rest stop to get a picture of "fields" and almost stepped on a bullsnake - aghh! With about 24 hours in the car, I got a lot of knitting done! We passed this wind farm in Kansas. It's hard to tell how gigantic these big windmills are, then you see the tiny cows!
