...the girls were dancing in the streets. It was an excellent (near) four hours. Our downtown has taken a beating over the years. Like a lot of cities our size, the retail hustle and bustle of yester-year has moved on out to the suburbs. But the old gal is reinventing herself, I think. Good ideas, good people and a really strong sense of pride are flowing.
I think the pictures will show that a pretty blue sky with big mashed potato clouds shows just how cool downtown still is. Oh, and three cute little ones (Thomas joined us later) certainly help it along!

|Someone had her third fall in three days.|
But it didn't seem to stop her from doing this:
|The pic in the lower right corner STILL has us grinning stupid grins.|
|I wasn't kidding. A LOT of dancing! Happy Feet :)|
|There must be an extra $5 in that fountain because of the coins they threw.|

Currently, a tired little one is snoring through the baby monitor. Have a good week, Ella-Land!
