Ruby Red Slippers

I was out "sacking" this week.  I'm not sure where that term developed, but it refers to hopping around to various Goodwill type stores in search of, well, whatever you are searching for and some things you aren't.  Ol' Mother Hubbard and I are throwing a shower this Sunday, and Rae and I in early fall, so I had a few items on my "sacking" list.  I found a beautiful dress-up dress and ruby red slippers.

Missy Bugg went straight from the car to the ruby red dress and shoes.  When her cousins arrived and were all appropriately decked out, they felt Aunt Lois was in need of yet another fashion show.

This lovely white number had a previous life as Ol' Mother Hubbard's Class Day dress.

Miss Linee was sure to spin and twirl so Aunt Lois could fully appreciate all aspects of her ensemble.

 All that finery barely fit in the dolphin swing, and climbing in with those slippers was quite a feat to behold.

 We had a little rain, enough to let the kids net some creek life.

Antebellie was ecstatic to find her first minnow.

Baby Giddy-up discovered the little creek, which led to through the troll tunnel to the new creek and was smitten.
 He was amazed that some of the kidlets left goodies on the snack blanket after story time. He is not one to let a good cookie go to waste.
 And this little Missy, continues to take it all in.

Wow, only two more summer Playdates.  Say it ain't so.
