good morning america how are you
say hello to my new little friend, mr. ukulele. boy, am i having fun with this baby! my daughter and i have been singing songs together! i'm no emmylou but i'm not letting that stop me :) plus alex has a great voice and sings in the choir and at church so she has no fear which has helped me not be afraid. and it's not like i'm planning to start singing publicly (this is purely for my own enjoyment) but i would like to play music and sing with ruben without being nervous. or perhaps around a campfire with friends or something. anyway, i'm very excited and am glad to have a new little hobby. here's the first song i've learned. i love it! arlo guthrie played it when we saw him last month and i've been singing it in my head since.
these pictures are from tuesday when shane, marianne and i had a picnic at the park. there were carnival rides across the street that were sitting in an open lot, so we walked over and took some pictures. i also caught a little toad (see here) which totally lifted my spirits.
it's friday and i have a fun weekend ahead. a school carnival this afternoon which has THE BEST rummage sale ever! i can't wait. then a family pool/bbq day on saturday AND on sunday we're going to visit my sister, yay! do you have any fun plans?
