It's Wednesday. Yippee for hump day. But more importantly, it's Outdoor Wednesday, so graciously hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer. If you haven't met Susan yet, you really need to go by and check out her blog. It's beautiful! And Outdoor Wednesday is such a fun weekly event. Make sure to drop by http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ and say hello, you'll be so glad you did. I've been MIA alot lately. Work has been nuts, we've had family visiting from out of town and it's been so hot and dry that I haven't felt like taking many outdoor shots because everything looks awful! But my daughter got this great shot a week ago as she and some friends were eating at an outdoor restaurant in Denton. I thought it was so cute, just look at that little paw on her friend's hand as he nibbles a chip. She sent me this via mobile upload, and I immediately sent her a message to not give that poor little thing any hot sauce!
Last week, we were blessed to have my husband's niece and her two children visit from Philadelphia. Jessica is 8 and is such a smart, fun little girl. Julian is 3, and he is ALL BOY! His very favorite thing in the world (this week, anyway) is firetrucks and firemen. On the last night before their flight back to Philly, we took the kids to Shake's Frozen Custard for a treat. As we were getting ready to leave, one of our Georgetown Fire Department trucks was pulling up. I took Julian's hand and walked toward the truck, his eyes getting bigger with every step we took. As we approached the truck, I asked one of Georgetown's finest if I could take a picture of my visiting great nephew in front of the firetruck. "No ma'm" he replied, much to my dismay. "But I can let you take a picture of the little guy IN the truck". Julian was estatic. He had such a ball, and shook the hand of each of the three firemen. I don't think he will ever forget this, but if he does, Aunty Kathy has a picture to remind him! Don't you just love those "blue raspberry" lips!
Hope you enjoyed these shots. And don't forget to stop by and visit Susan and see what else people are sharing for Outdoor Wednesday.
