Picking mint in Addy's Garden

Today, I wanted to make a dish that Liberty and I are fond of, and Addy invited me over to her garden to pick mint, which is the key ingredient in the dish.
"Are you almost done?" Addy asked, coming around the mint bush. "Yes, I 'm done." I replied, "Thank you for letting me pick mint in your garden." "You're welcome." she said, " That's what Friends are for." Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this very short blog post, because I enjoyed making it.

Our Afternoon at Lake Calamus

 Hi  everyone! Today, after schooling, Marie and Caramel and Vanilla and I went down to Lake Calamus, which is the nearest thing we have to a beach near our house.
  These are the first pictures I took when I got out of the car.
 First we ate our lovely lunch, provided by Marie. Ice cold water and lettuce and tomato sandwiches. Yum!
 Our lovely view.
Right after dinner, Marie read an American Girl magazine......... 
........but  I used my new swimsuit for the first time in the waters of Lake Calamus. Fun, Fun, Fun!

State Fair

 As a way of ending our summer, Liberty and I went to the State Fair. 
Also, we went there to see Liberty's photo (explained in an earlier post).. 

 At first, we simply wandered around, amazed by the sights, sounds, and smells of the State Fair. 

Soon we stopped at the Sea Lion's tank.
Liberty has decided that sea lions are her favorite animal, after dogs.

 Next, we looked at all the animals people had entered. 
I liked the rabbits best of all. Liberty liked the ducks.

Later, Liberty and I separated to look at different things 
that people were selling.  I looked at the jewelry...

                                            ...and Liberty looked at the roasted nuts and candies.

 Then we looked at a collection of fairy gardens.  
Liberty wanted me to point out the little house in one.  
We also saw Liberty's photo at this time. Liberty was very excited, it having got a purple ribbon.
 Later, we both had a sample of a cinnamon roll.
Here is me...

 and Liberty.

 Last of all, we went to the petting zoo.  
The porcupine's name is Fluffy.  Liberty just wanted me to mention that.
Next we will be jumping into our school year.  That will certainly be an adventure!
