Fun on the Farm

Earlier in the month, Frances and I got to to the National Peanut Festival and spend the weekend down on our friend Lydia's parents' farm.  It was such a nice getaway with friends, and Frances got to play with her friend Charlie for the entire weekend.  On Saturday we hit the big parade, relaxed, played outside, and went to the fair.  Frances was wiped out from all the fun when we got home!
Beautiful sunrise

We're Still Here!

Today you get a picture explosion to recap the last month.  Things have been crazy busy, with a long rough recovery from Frances' surgery, birthdays, work, Frances' starting a new school, Halloween, and just life in general.  The biggest news, as you will see in some pictures: Frances is walking all over the place!!!!  She will take about 20 steps at a time, and it looks like we are close to ditching the walker.  So proud of her!
Doesn't take her long to destroy a clean playroom!
Sweet girl feeling rotten after surgery. No worries, she's back 110%!

Should I get this one?
