last night (while I was asleep and dreaming) Kevin Deiber and I were in a double-wide chicken suit at a high school church dance. most of the other attendants were Latino gang members in skinny jeans. they mostly stood around looking cool until some sharks and jets music came on and then they began dance fighting. things started to get scary when we went out into the parking lot and a bearded David Cross in a reeeally tall Abraham Lincoln hat started chasing us. I think he was either going to get us to join the community jazz band or stay late and clean up after the dance. oh the terror.
also for the record when my husband appears in...husbandly dreams somehow his voice always sounds very much like Don Draper
dinosaur park in Ogden (not to be confused with the Evanston playground with a dinosaur slide) was one of our summer fun days (yes still catching up)
my sister hanna assisting
lily and aaron, I think one day they might get married. they already act like they have been for 50 years. their grumpy moods and need to be in charge intertwine so that they are either wrestling on the floor to vent frustration that the other person won't follow the 49 rules to the made-up game or being each other's knight and princess taking turns doing the rescuing. plus wouldn't this be just so cute at their reception?
to lily and aaron in the magical golden cave of the allosaur, "look scared!"
"no aaron, not scaRY....scared!"
I must love rainbows as much as lily since most of our friends sat down to rest and I rearranged a couple to make this
but then we tried to add some of the littlse and they weren't as cool on the idea. max wouldn't even get off the sidewalk. stinkin max
ah, this weekend was one of our favorites of the summer. in pa school my husband had these 2 great buddies. who not only studied and became great medical people but also enjoyed such traditions as "let's grow ugly moustaches week". so on this weekend we gathered them all to our house (on janie's birthday I might add). here's the oldest 4 of the 8 kids (one of them might be dressed up as a bride):
but then I got to take off with the family of girls for some real live family photos. and their pictures are ones that I wish I could somehow switch out the heads of my own family and have them be my family pictures too. like I love the images and the happiness and the colors and the pink so much but it would probably be weird to order myself a 24 inch canvas for my wall, you know?
please don't make fun of the father's huge head ha ha
