Peaches and Acrylics

This past weekend was our local peach festival. There were lots of friends to meet:

And fun activities for the kids:

Doesn't Hero look noble as King of the Hill ?


Cue the "Julie Andrews" music- lol

Unfortunately, it was HOT! The bouncing"pillow" was roughly the same temperature as the surface of the sun.

But panning for fools gold gave the kids an excuse to get wet.
And yes, we did pick half a bushel of delicious white peaches-
but this is the only picture I have with peaches in it

Because while we were busy "picking" guess who had the camera

On to "acrylics"...
I did this rough sketch
Alaina asked if she could paint it. So, of course I let her- and I think it came out pretty well.

I think Hero wants a tire hill at home. Guess artistic genes run in the family.

Hero is soooooooooo sweet.
Peaches, I love peaches. I was going to the farmer's market this morning and it is pouring down rain. ( the market is outside.) So I did not go.
I just am not in the mood to "blog" anymore.
My v. word is "driamen"
