  2. They had UFO cookies last year, delicious. The best thing this year was butterfly chips, like homemade potato chips. Lots of stuff to drink, lol.

  8. I should probably put up an explanation even though it's WW, Laurie. It was clicking into the sun at first since I was late and didn't check out the spots, but always a good photo op.

    1. You're welcome, Sophia. As you can see, Election Day got the best of me and didn't get time to post until it was actually Wednesday this week. Better late than never on both counts, eh.
      Yeah, I thought that baby was real.
