First there was Franklin's Touch-a-Truck, which we've been waiting for for months. It is the simplest, best thing for young kids ever!
|And for those adults who have always wanted to ride on the back of a (clean) garbage truck|
We got a free, teal leather couch. WHAT WHAT!
Whit found new and interesting sleep positions...
My family came to visit! Which involved the Tennessee Renaissance Faire...
|King Whitman and his silly Big Daddy|
|Fried Oreos! Mmmmmm....droooool|
|Checking out the falcons and owls with Mimi and Aunt Jo|
|Finally! Someone to draw the elusive cat-truck he's been asking for.|
|This is a new exhibit where you can walk around with the kangaroos. This is the cropped picture|
|Here it is uncropped.|
|Someone was exhausted!|
|And Cousin Logan was not! I'm pretty sure he didn't sleep the entire visit!|
|My sister Shanna, her son Logan and my dog Foster. Shanna is Foster's favorite person for some reason.|
So I was in a show. The Female Odd Couple at the Old School Theatre in Spring Hill. And being in a show means you frequent the local thrift shops a lot. Which lead me to this horrifying number:
And this sweet deal!
Random shot of new hurr cut and holy cow is it getting long!
Put the kiddo to work making me some more art...
Entered Whit in Publix's cute kid contest for bedhead. If you'd like to send us a vote, I'd greatly appreciate it!
Ran the Fired Up n Fit obstacle-5k for a local charity with my friend, Brandy. It was a lot of fun: logs over creeks, muddy trenches, running through fire. Yesss!
So that show I was in? It was set in the '80s, so here was my nightly hair prep:
And on the second night, we had a big storm come through and the power went out. So what do we do? Take a page from my old community college and turn the
flashlights cell phones on the stage. The whole cast was handing me their cell phones, then the audience started doing the same. So I put them on the edge like old-timey footlights. Live theatre, folks! It's exhilarating!
|The view from the audience.|
And is already interested in baseball, much to my husband's delight.
|Why yes, that is a kid's fireman's helmet.|
|Child labor, ftw!|
And here's where I promise I'll be a better poster, but we both know it's not likely. So we just smile and nod and say see you then!
