Fairly Silly






Looking forward to the Destruction Derby tonight at the Sonoma County Fair! It’s become an annual thing for us and a group of friends that seems to be growing exponentially each year. Probably due to word getting out about the fun. I think our headcount will be pushing 30 this year!

Also a tradition, the pre-Derby family visit to the photo booths and the post-Derby Old Timey group shot afterwards. SO FUN. These were taken last year. It’ll be interesting to see how crowded that wacky group shot gets tonight.

I know I say it all the time, but man you guys really do live in the best town! Always something fantastic happening.

Oh, and I saw a pic. of the gift pack you send Anne and I just want to say that you are the queen of the care package. Well, you and Anne. Very cool Missa.

Hope your summer has been full and happy. Thank you for your sweet comments. And next time we head up north, just want you to know you will be first on our touristy list of things "to do & see" :)
