*One of the fun things we did this weekend was have a dinner picnic at Lake Lavon with some friends. It was really nice to get outside to play in the water. Hooray for triple digit death making an exit. I forgot the camera, as usual. This pic was just one of the lake online. Jake took some pictures with his phone camera of Tessa getting muddy and throwing rocks in the water, but we don't have a clue as to how to get phone pics onto the computer. The clay mud was insanely gooey, and Tessa almost lost a shoe to it. But the water felt good and the sunset was beautiful.
*I took the camera out the other day to get a recent picture of Tessa up for the grandparents. She can't have advance notice of the camera. She thinks her face has to be up in it do any good, and she wants to see the result of the picture without having taken any. So there's a bulbous nose for you.*The Reeds gave us a bike they didn't need anymore. This is one happy camper. She can't figure out how to get it going, but she's pleased as peaches to just be on it for now. Thanks so much, Reeds!
Now I need to get a bike. I've been saving up. We've been looking. Turns out nice bike shops aren't the place to look if your budget is as limited as mine. My cheap and practical cruiser is out there. I think the words cheap and practical might show up on my grave. Please don't let that happen. At least make it sound fun....like chinchy and pragmatic. "Here lies that one chinchy and pragmatic lady. Woowee, did she know how to have a good time!"
