Summer Loveliness

We met the fam yesterday at Grant Park where there was a free symphonic concert, directed by a conductor who looked like the spawn of Einstein and Colonel Sanders. I took a lot of pictures. Here are a few:

Someone had a birthday in the park.

Someone else made some new friends and ate all the cheerios in the bottom of the wagon.

This guy is proud of who he is.

This lady drinks her wine from a real glass.

Abey-baby really likes these two.

Someone spent a long time making a necklace.

Colonel Sanders conducts.

Earlier that morning, I'd driven out to Edgefield to meet with Joy and Beka. What an amazing time we had--what is it with moms adopting from Ethiopia? What lovely people. Beka made a bag for me and Joy, filled with these lovely things:
I showed everyone this bag, took it to the store this morning to fill up with bread.

Lori,
The picture of the woman's hands and the wine glass captivated me. I think I would have enjoyed meeting her. And you are PRECIOUS in the last pic. I miss you!!!
