We also bought a new air purifier, because our forest has become one big smoking bar. It's nasty out there. The light is all orange and cloudy, and it stinks and makes my eyes run. It's due to get nothing but worse for a while - no rain in the forecast, but more thunderstorms with wind, and possibly hail.
(And anyway, it would take amazing rain to knock back these fires - drizzle just turns things from 'ashtray' to 'wet ashtray that sticks to you.')
It doesn't matter which way the wind is coming from, either, because the entire state looks like it has fire measles.
In Guppy stories, we found a Frozen balloon at the store and I snapped a shot:
I had to drag her away. Balloon-Elsa even got a hug (but that photo wasn't very good).
Later, Papa brought her home her very own Frozen balloon. (But not the big one.) She was THRILLED.
On Sunday, we met an old college friend at the Dinosaur exhibit! It was a little cheesy (especially for the price), but we had the place largely to ourselves, because of the Midnight Sun Fest downtown. Guppy enjoyed it, and it was nice catching up with our friend.
All for now!
