Blogging Backlog

OK, I know it's been a long time since we blogged so I will try to catch you up quickly. Hold on tight and don't be scared by what you are about to see.

Today we went to the Turkey Trot festival in Yellville. For all those who don't know, this is a big deal in a small town. The highlight of the day (next to the parade) is each time the airplane flies over the town square and throws out a living, breathing turkey down to the crowd waiting below. Seriously, I could not make this up. This was my second Turkey Trot experience--I went with Lee once, either right before we were married or right after. If you are thinking that this is a cruel thing to do to a turkey, settle down. It's not that bad, and most of the turkeys can fly anyway. It was a beautiful day today and we got to visit with a lot of people we haven't seen in a while, like all the Duffys and the Yellville Pugsleys.

Becca liked her grape sucker!

You can't have a parade without horses!

My thoughts exactly! (look close)

Here is the only picture we got of a turkey falling. Look right above the power pole.

See, I told you I am not making this stuff up...what a proud Arkansan!

Last weekend Pop came to visit us. Well, really visit Becca. This is her new thing. This wagon was not really made for kids, but don't tell her that. It is full of giant Lego blocks. We took a break from pulling her and let Pop take a turn. You can also see that Pop got Becca an Ernie doll. It is a TMX Ernie that will laugh (loudly) and spin around and dance. Honestly, she was not too fond of it so we turned the switch off. She is liking him more when he is still....she even let Ernie ride in her wagon.
