Happy Labor Day!

Cincinnati has big, beautiful Labor Day fireworks downtown on the river. Growing up, we had front row seats watching them from our boat. We'd pack a dinner, get our boat in the river early in the afternoon, and wait excitedly til nightfall.

This is the first year we've been in Cincinnati with our boys. And while we don't have a boat, a car with a sun roof was exciting enough--lots of ooh's and ahh's and excited laughter. We loved it : )
Today we picked up a book that's been on my wish list for awhile. I love the old school illustrations, the colors, the cute little bunny and his sweet little hollow tree home.

Today I am sporting one of Granny's dresses and a new haircut courtesy of my sister, Andrea. Considering the fact that she's not an "actual" "hairdresser" and has never really "learned" how to "cut" "hair" (excessive use of quotes courtesy of the this man), I'd say she's pretty darn good at it!
Gotta churn out a lot of art this week! Have a good Labor Day!
