Day 45

Today was a fun day! Ashlyn ,Ella, Acadia, and I headed down to Springville. When I told the girls where we were going they were so excited! I didn't think any of them were contagious still, but I was a little worried about them getting Grandpa sick and so I tried to keep them from getting too close to him (as you can see in the picture I wasn't always successful). We went to the creamery on 9th and had lunch with Arlene, Carl, and Grandpa. It was a fun place to eat with yummy icecream and cool french fri holders. Afterwards we headed over to the photo show. I was so glad that they wanted to come with me! It was cool, but kind of wierd to have a picture of mine in a show. Almost as soon as we walked in the room, Carl said 'hey look at this' and he flipped up a ribbon. I was totally shocked! It was one of my MY photos (I never have won anything before)!!!!! I never expected any kind of ribbon! I got an honorable mention ribbon! I felt like crying! As I looked through all the photos in the exhibit I just kept thinking 'wow! out of all these photos one of mine got a ribbon!' I still feel like I am in disbelief! Crazy! But it really has motivated me to get back in the whole photo thing (I just haven't been motivated to do anything the past few months). I hope Arlene and others enter in it next year, too! I still can't believe that one of mine was worth one of the few ribbons!
And thanks, again, Arlene!

Adadia looks so cute in the picture.
