a quick project i made this week for my girlfriend erin whose pics are below. we had a baby shower dinner for her friday night and that was so fun. REAL FUN! it was a night out with grown women. can you hear the delight in my voice? and i made erin a quilt for baby reef who is due on the 30th.

then last night we took the girls to the fair. there are two ways to look at a fair.
dave's way and my way.

dave's way: you know i can't believe you actually want to go on any of these rides. should we let the kids ride them? do you see who put these rides together? i'm pretty sure they woke up this morning, lit a doobie and started putting rides together. hey earl--does this look good to you? i have a couple a pin's and bolts left over.

my way: WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

hey--when you grow up in a small farm town all you have to look forward to is the fair! i loved it every year. i even remember the year i had the chicken pox and couldn't go and how i cried. i don't know what i love more--the toss you around, throw you up in the air, spin you until you want to puke rides, or the food. ahhhh, the food. corndogs, soda, funnel cakes, caramel apples, fry bread, waffle cones, cotton candy. yum. no pics this year because we went late. but everyone had fun and even dave admitted how fun it was to see his little ones get such a kick out of it. and the death toll stayed at ZERO.

some fun stampin' up projects coming up soon so stay posted and have a great week...L

I have fond fair memories of small-town life, also.
Now, I could care less if I go, to the big city type fair! Too dang expensive!
Sounds like you had a fun weekend, though!

I want to go to the fair!!! Jeff was the same way, I totally wanted to ride the rides at the carnival until it hit us that each ride was $10/person. Then my cheap side came out. I miss you guys!
