Lots of pictures, vacation part 2

Before I begin with the pictures, another layout from the July Scrappy Giraffe Kit .

So here are some photos from our vacation at home. We were really wanting to go to the beach and although it wasn't the ocean, it was nice to sit and relax in the sand and enjoy the water (by the way, these are two pictures below, but they kind of look good giant picture).

We also went hiking a bit at a nearby state park. Enjoyed walking in the creek, climbing rocks.

We then took a train ride. One word described that experience....TORTURE. They made it out to be some great scenic trip on a cool old train when in all actuality it was a ride on a train without air conditioning with windows that barely opened more than 6 inches going 5 mph on a train track that was cut through weeds and trees so that there was nothing to look at but weeds and trees that were 5 feet away from you. Did I mention it was 90 degrees outside when we went and it felt like a breath of fresh air when we got off of that stupid thing. Torture. Not going to do that again.

We went to the farmer's market again. That thing is huge. This is the puny corner of it. I don't know what that building is but thought it was kind of cool.

We got quite a bit of food....cilantro, basil, corn, beans, asparagus, cabbage, potatoes, a kohlrabi, lettuce, cookies (long gone).

Also picked up some cute dishtowels, a candle holder and a hook (to go in the girl's room)

Emma loves the capital, so on our way by it on the way home, she really wanted to stop. We stopped, walked in, looked around. They got a free capital tatoo, pencil, and coloring book. Emma was quite excited to be in the capital.

One other cute story. Friday Emma got a piece of something lodged in her foot. I was looking at it, she was very unhappy, crying, screaming. Kept yelling that she wanted a doctor to take it out, not me. Hee, hee...thought that was cute. Anyway that is all for now. Have a good 4th of July.

Thanks for sharing your pictures with us. They are cool. Those two do go together. Can't believe there is that much at Farmer's market. I guess people plant their gardens earlier than me! I will have to start going soon at the one by me.

Have a good fourth and don't shoot off too many fireworks!
