Guitars and rock stars.

Can you find Bug? She's nearly invisible in her yellow t-shirt in front of the big Gibson tour bus.
Here she is, inside the bus, trying out a Paul McCartney model Epiphone. (you gotta play them left-handed!)

Bug got to meet John Corabi, former singer of The Scream, Motley Crue and Union. Just before this photo, he asked Bug if he could give her a kiss. She offered up her cheek.


The guy behind John is laughing because John just excused himself from a chat with "the guys" to hear what Bug had to say. From the looks of her, I'm guessing it was "Hey, John....guess what's behind my back."
It was a long day at the guitar shop.

A few more pics.

Bug recently discovered our collection of Calvin & Hobbes books. We often find her in this pose with them.

One of Bug's dad's co-workers put this together with a few pics he'd taken of Bug over the past few months.

Bruce the Bug Guy

Bruce the Bug Guy visited our library yesterday. Luckily, I had my camera with me and the mystery moth photo was still on it. He told us that it's an Imperial Moth. Yay. Mystery solved!

Bug got to check out this BIG caterpillar close up.
Can you hear the giggles? She really liked this moth.

Miss Sherrie (the librarian) was very brave, and held the moth, too. (she did vanish when the tarantula came out.... Bug's friend, Kaz, thought that the tarantula (named Rosie) was cool.
Bug liked Rosie, too. I wish that I had a sound recording. She was laughing so hard.

Stockholm Art Fair

We spent last Saturday at the Stockholm Art Fair. It's always fun. The weather was perfect, the music was great. Bug was thrilled that they had added to the play area.

Here she is on the spinning rings of death. (Bug is in brown)
With her buddy, Yata.

Our former neighbor, Angela, had this lovely piece on display.

Check out the title....

Bug goes for a spin. DON'T JUMP!!!

Bug was happy when she realized that she was big enough to push the other kids this year.
Will she do it?
A new skill was mastered...Bug had never tried this before. I helped her one time and that was it. I'm not sure how many times she did this in the 5 hours we were there...but it was a lot.

Summer update.

Here are some random pics from the summer.
First up, Bug found this metal model car kit on sale at Hobby Lobby and NEEDED it. She could hardly wait to get home and put it together. I think her face says it all.

Bug's dad found this huge moth the other night. We haven't identified it yet, but will keep you posted.

We found a "build your own robot" kit for $5 the other day. Bug was thrilled, as you can see.

Here she is at the "candy parade" in Maiden Rock. Always a fun time.

Last weekend, at the Anderson Center, she discovered that she's finally tall enough to climb onto (and jump off of) the "big rock" all by herself.

LOUD squeals of joy erupted from our house when I brought in the mail and there was an autographed postcard for Bug from......BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY!!!!!

Again, at the Anderson Center, with friends...getting a pottery demonstration from our former neighbor, Angela. We miss her.

Walking to the Children's Museum, hand-in-hand with her friend Kaz. (anyone surprised that she found a long-haired boy?!)

Bug is staying busy with art classes this month. She also had a cooking class that she really enjoyed. We've got next week off and I'm looking forward to it.
