Sniff This

Before I "dazzle" you with my crazy story, allow me to share with you some photos of when I was actually doing a semi-decent job of parenting while BD was away. Not only did Playette and I go shopping, but we also went to a pool party and to see some fireworks over the weekend. And just when you think it could get no better...we went to the Garlic Festival.

I want to say that it was hot there, but after Phoenix? Hm. It was a mild 96 degrees.

I really don't get why so many people, present company included, get excited about paying to get into a place only to pay to eat. But that's exactly what happened.

At least we got there nice and early so that it wasn't crowded until right before we left.

Best part:

Playette really enjoyed it.

Posing with GarlicBalloonMan. This picture gives you no indication of how dangerous an effort taking this photo actually was. Which is probably for the best.

I regret not buying this shirt for a couple of reasons.

Staying hydrated. As you can see, Playette is in long pants. I am so out of touch with what passes as actual summer clothes that I thought she would be fine. As a result, she was one sweaty baby.
