The Circus came into town and I really wanted to go. So, instead of the Fair we went to the Circus. The show was very entertaining. I am just so amazed at the human body and what it is capable of doing. Aleecia's favorite thing was the tigers. There was a couple of times I thought the tiger was going eat the guy in the ring. My favorite was the elephants. They were amazing. In my next life I am going to join the circus and ride the elephants.

Ben's Wedding #2

My brother got married in the rain on Tuesday the 15th. Despite the rain it really was a beautiful wedding. David was a groomsmen, I was a bridesmaid, and Aleecia was the flower girl. As mentioned in a previous post Aleecia had a beautiful dress with gloves and all. The wedding was a garden wedding so because of all the rain in was more like a mud wedding. There was no way Aleecia was going to wear her slippers in the mud so she had a beautiful dress with muddy nikes. The ceremony was nice. Aleecia threw her flowers like she was suppose too and we all made it without falling (there was a couple close calls). When my brother saw his bride he broke down in tears which made me cry as well. After all was said and done we all locked arms and went down the isle. Unfortunately at the end was a huge mud pile and we all got muddy. Speaking of mud. . . Aleecia thought it might me fun to throw mud at the little boys and wrestle them down into the mud. Her beautiful dress was destroyed! Everybody there thought it was cute except for me.

Sitting up

Mia is learning how to sit.

Shortly after these pictures were taken she fell face first. It was truly sad.
