We took the girls to the Route 66 Preservation Society Annual Picnic on Sunday. The drawback was that our kids were the only kids there. Not much fun for them. There was a playground and some swing bridges that we went to explore, so it wasn't a total loss. I also took the opportunity to take some "outside" pictures of the girls.
On our way home, we started talking about Halloween. Vivi is having a hard time deciding between Max from Where The Wild Things Are and Cinderella. Emerson, however, has her mind made up. She wants to be a Rockford Peach from the AAGPBL. (All American Girl Professional Baseball League) You might remember them from the movie A League of Their Own.I have search the web for a costume, but the only one I can find is for an adult and it's $225. A little more than I wanted to spend.
I went to my mom's work today and I think I laid the ground work with one of our friends. She's an incredible seamstress and I asked her if she would teach me to sew. When my mom gets back from Paris, I will have her ask her again. I'm pretty good at Velcro and fusible web, but I don't think I can do a whole costume without it falling apart.
