Two rather expensive and kind of socially required trips to the local show.
A rather impressive fire work display this evening.
Party preparations continue, paper mache this morning and honey joy’s baked this afternoon. Though I will need to make another bath of them tomorrow because ah yum…
Show day family portrait . It’s pretty hot, dry, dusty and noisy. The kids are confused about what the heck is going on. I’m kicking myself that I didn’t bring my good camera to make some photos with this amazingly strong light and long long shadows BUT, we have a balloon, so probably, it’s all going to work out OK. #reddirt

The boys rode expensive mini trains and L has his first ever show bag. L has been really getting into Gonoodle which is great. Side effects include having had this mind worm stuck in my head all day.
Speaking of paper mache, I found this incredible paper mache dragon blog while looking for something today. I am pretty sure I had a book by him as a child, Gremlins, Gargoyles, Goblins or something.
