A few things. And then a few more things.

First of all, I am updating you on the status of our little friend, Hidalgo. (Remember? The cucumber?)
He's grown quite tall, dark and handsome, IMHO.  I can't wait to slice him up and eat him. (Yes, I realize that sounds a bit morbid. No, I really don't care.)

Best friends. Because we both do this:

Special. Because we all do this:

And don't let this picture fool you. I don't glow in the dark. Also, I really can't bowl. Sure, my high score might have been 93, which isn't TERRIBLE, but my low score (and yes, I was trying) was 52.

At least I bowled in good company.

We went up to Casey's family reunion last weekend. Kennedy showed an inordinate amount of enthusiasm at having so many kids to play with for two whole days. She was in kid heaven.

I golfed. I used the same ball the entire time. I call that successful.

I also held baby Julietta. (Why do babies' heads always smell so good??)

And I fell in love.
With a puppy.
I would have taken her home with me, but I couldn't figure out how to stuff her in my purse without hurting her.

Lastly, here are some (very) random pictures for you (a/k/a "a few more things"):

Random pictures explained:
-P4: this is the level I parked on, today, in my colorful parking garage at work. I love that I get free downtown parking. It rocks. Especially on the weekends when I don't actually have to work.

-Lemons: because Kennedy has been bugging me lately to set up a lemonade stand.  Oh, the things I would do if I stayed at home with her all day...

-Ellie and Carl (Up couple): because they are the cutest couple ever. I want to be like them when I grow up.

-Pinky & The Brain: because sometimes you want to re-live your childhood and watch Animaniacs.

-Phish Phood: I really need to explain this one.

-Space Ghost: Hahahahaha. That is all.

Your cucumber has grown so big! Congratulations. I hope he is tasty.

I love that you use words like inordinate.

Aw, what a handsome cucumber. And now I want phish food. Glad you are having a fun summer! And why is Kennedy getting so big?? She's so cute! And you look totally gorgeous and happy. Yay! :)

Hidalgo has grown handsome indeed. I hope he is tasty.

You neglected to share your golf score, though making it an entire round using the same ball is definitely something to be proud of.

I'm so happy Kennedy enjoyed the large supply of playmates. :)

Phish phood? Dare I ask?
I'm slightly jealous of people who can grow vegies in their own yard. Here in the shade all we can grow is mold. Don't judge it's good in cheese.

Hidalgo looks delicious! Sounds like a lot of fun is being had in your world lately, and a lot of cuteness too! :)

Love the randomness! Good job on using one ball!
