Laurapalooza trash kids

Sunday, September 27, 2009

So Laurapalooza yesterday was a big hit. I burned my face in the New Jersey sun again, but not as much as last time. Our flip flop hippo was item of the day, and we got pix with a president (coming soon). Also realized that people in Pennington have the cutest kids in the world. Many of them run around. Some are excellent trashion models:

We’re headed to Jersey today to take part in LaurapaloozaIn preparation, I am finally read this New Yorker article about Laura Ingalls Wilder and her daughter, Rose that everyone keeps talking about (kind of dark); and asked friends to share any anecdotes they remember about the Ingalls family reusing things and making things from scrap. Hands down the most vividly recalled example was Laura and Mary making a balloon out of a pig bladder and playing catch. Things made from scrap fabrics was a close second. What do you remember from the Laura Ingalls Wilder books and Little House on the Prairie the TV show?
