This is the World's Largest Chocolate Fountain, found at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. It's behind glass, which is pretty smart, because if it wasn't I'm sure people would stick their heads right under there and drink. Not me, of course. I'd bring a cup. It's hard to tell the scope in this picture, but it's over 15 feet tall. It's running out of the ceiling. Three different kinds of chocolate. Hoo boy.
We went to see the Blue Man Group when they were at the Walton Arts Center in September. It was my 3rd time to see them, and I love them every single time. This is a picture I took during the show--we had pretty darn good seats. There was a brief moment of terror when they picked someone 5 seats down from us to go up on stage, but I breathed easy once it wasn't me.
This was the scene at The Harbor in July at our rummage sale. We had SO. MUCH. STUFF. It was great. I am one of those freaks that likes putting on one of these sales. Something about making money off of things you don't want any more is just so satisfying.
My eldest on the occasion of her 7th birthday. We checked her out of school long enough to take her to lunch. We told her we'd go anywhere she wanted. Of course, we went to McDonald's. As you can tell I had to coax her to pose for the camera.
