“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

 Typical morning.
 Daniela is a trooper when it comes to getting up early to go out to the barn.
 Yesterday Barb had 300 bales of hay delivered....100 more today.
It smells so good.
 This morning they started working on the fields around us.  It took no time to do 100 acres.

 Gary took the girls to the Genesee Country Museum and out to lunch.  By the time they got back to the farm they were pooped and hot.  I was on my own at the pool today.
 Stopped at Weggies on the way home.  Special dinner tomorrow night to celebrate
Daniela's birthday.  Gary dropped the girls off at Jenny's and went down to the Welcome Center to help the band get set up for tonight's performance.  I did chores.
 At 6 I met Judy and Sally down at the Stoneyard for dinner.
 We had a tasting...a Cubano sandwich and an Asian salad.
It felt so good to go out with friends.  Of course I had my leg up with ice on it...worked well.

Then, we headed over to the Welcome Center.
 Miles Watts (who we have known since he was a child) and his band
Brothers From Other Mothers were on deck.

The music got these kids moving.

This was my favorite song of the evening.

 I have to think of a name for Jenny, Katie and Kristen.
 Margay and Ulpi were among many of our friends who were there.

 These three pals are having one heck of a good summer.  So glad they got together.
I need some suggestions...the three?????

 Gary assigned Daniela the job of counting how many people were there.
Over 100.
 There was a lot of activity on the canal.

 Daniela and Ariana chose to take a break inside the building....air conditioning you know.
 These Vegas babes are very used to being cool.

 They had a good time exchanging stories with Katie's daughter.

 Emma was there.

 The evening ended with happy campers.
Night all.


  1. such fun!

    Happy birthday Daniella!
