day one fifty one

The aftermath of fun in the sun ALL day long
It's bark is worse than it's bite
It was a suggestion to rub a raw potato all over it
too bad I don't have any potatoes
Back-burned, Burning Virginia
my mom rules, made a bad day a little better

A buck fifty

We set up those tents and didn't even sleep in them.
Well, some sissy lalas did - after I spotted
the LARGEST SPIDER I've ever seen in the wilderness, ever.
I would have liked a picture of it for proof and astonishment,
but it was killed with a shovel before I had the chance.

Day one forty one

Today my cousin had her first communion, which means we had a big party at our house
in honor of her first wafer "that tasted like popcorn".
As Taylor and I left the party, we ran into this wrist band (on the ankles) wearing,
cake eating cutie pie sitting at the end of the drive way by himself.
I asked him if I could take his picture and he said "tomorrow"
But I convinced him that today was better.

2. Hardly an explanation for this one... Elise.
3. Where do we even start here. There was a very illegal festival going on in TORONTO today, surrounded by police who didn't care at all, so in addition to walking through a park of herbal happenings we entertained the horses. We wish we knew why the police didn't care more.
Oh Toronto.
