Good Morning Friends
It's a cool cloudy morning here in Baltimore and I am up with the
There is much to do on the agenda this weekend.
My house needs a ... recovery.
It is time for me to clean and pack away all of the summer seashells and strawberries
and make room for some fall decor.
With the Halloween planning in full force
I don't want to do to much with the basic fall stuff
since I will be transforming this house into Whimsy creepyville in just about 2 weeks.
I can't wait!
Yesterday, compliments of the free tickets given to us by Pork Chop at work,
we went to the Maryland State Fair and had a great time.
There were lots of animals to pet and watch.
This horse liked Sally.
Michelle ( the future bird vet) loved the chickens!
We watched eggs crack and begin to hatch
and saw many beautiful cows.
This little piggy had a cute butt
(Lynn and Earl ~ this one's for you.)
This boar was HUGE!
and these snoozing pigs looked strangely familiar..
Yup! I totally see the resemblance.
The smell of cotton candy and bit beef filled the air.
and of course there were rides.
Dad was trying to renege on his promise to go on the Zipper with Sally
No way pal ~ a promise is a promise!
and upside down and away they went!!
Although I was tired and somewhat dreading the idea of walking around,
I'm glad that we went.
We all enjoyed ourselves!
The scariest ~ I mean SCARIEST ride of the evening
was the ride home.
I swear, I saw my life and my families lives flash right before my eyes.
Just as Paul accelerated onto the busy interstate .. we were driving behind a large tractor trailer carrying cars.
( the gray truck in the photo)
In a split second and large pole fell from this truck and danced across the road in front of us.
I think that it all happened in slow motion.
All that I could see was the pole coming directly at our windshield.
Thankfully Paul was driving and he did a great job trying to avoid it.
(He should've been a race car driver!)
He swerved back and forth and lucky the pole just bounced off of our bumper.
Even this morning I am still a little shaken.
I am just counting our lucky stars!
..and as my heart aches for bumps and bruises to my beautiful new car
I am sooo sooo happy to be home safe and sound with my family!!
I know that the busted fog light and scuffs on the bumper can be fixed.
My family is irreplaceable!!
Happy Labor Day weekend.
