Weekly Winners June 28 - July 4th

I finally got my act somewhat collected to join in Sarcastic Mom's Weekly Winners photography linky that she holds on Sundays. Because I am lazy, it will have to stand as my Monday post, as well. But never fear, Bitchin' folk, I will return with a tale of drama and despair to fill you in on the ordeal of attaining our visas for entrance to the UK. Methinks that Drama seems to be nipping at my heels at any given time of the day or night, these past months, so take it with a grain of salt or stay tuned for the saga I am preparing to share....

In the meantime, enjoy the splendor of a magical Fourth of July week in Iowa:
Capt. Chaos got up on skis for the first time! He will be a seasoned pro before we know it.... he is a natural. I am inordinately proud of him for this big accomplishment!

The Animal was running a full-charm offense this past week, winning over the hearts of little girls, swooning adults, and even jaded parents....

The carnival was a beautiful place to be between the times of 8:55 and 9:45 p.m.

He's a winner in his own mind. (And maybe mine, too.)

Fireworks over the lake with boats all around.

I'm not sure what he was crying about, as he just finished eating a plate of whipped cream to get to the piece of Hubba Bubba at the bottom!

C.C. came in second in the big Hula Hoop Championship!!!


  1. OH! Hoola hoops! I remember those!!! I just remembered now!!!! I'm gonna run out and look for one for me!!!!

  2. But you're not a sarcastic mom...

  3. Looks like an awesome day and you have some amazing photographs! I'm always impressed with your pictures.

  4. Small town fun nothing like it in the world. Sorry about the drama get use to it, it will follow you across the pond. Just wait until you try to get internet and cell phones and all the other joys that go with being in a foreign country.

  5. Such great, lively shots! I kept thinking "THIS one is my favorite!" until I scrolled down and saw the next one. Love what you can capture!

  6. What a fun weekend!
    Wow - those fireworks over the water are amazing!
