Farewell Ragamuffin

Just as a frame of reference, here's what Bug's hair looked like last week.
Yes, the curls were cute....but only right after washing her hair. After a few hours she quickly became this.... ...What I can only classify as a Ragamuffin. Well after a lovely evening at Miss Lizzie's house, Sophie came home looking like this....
With a little inverted bob kinda like Mommy's. It is so cute and so much easier to manage. And we can go back to bathtime once or twice a week, which is saving my patience and my back. I tried to get her to model her new do on a trip to Home Depot this weekend, but she didn't quite get what I was going for at first. The little Ham.
For the 4th of July, our family band was playing a festival at Ault Park. Sadly, it rained all day and our only audience was people that we were related to. At least that made up about 40 once you counted all the siblings, cousins, nieces, aunts, uncles, etc. Luckily, Gma Jane and Aunt Fay brought their canopies so we could all stay somewhat dry. Of course, Bug, in her love for all things water, HAD to run around outside. Gma Jane had also brought along Aunt Nikki's 20+ year old raincoat (why she kept it, even she doesn't know). It was a little big, but that made it even more adorable. After a struggle to get her to understand this yellow contraption, off she went into the great wide, wet open.

Looks like Mommy's going to have to go slicker shopping!
