I have been out and about.
I have been spending a couple of Saturday's with my daughters the past few weeks.
This picture was taken at a fundraiser called A Taste of UMC which is the hospital that my daughter is a medical student at. There were over 30 booths with samples of food from around the world. We sampled many delightful selections. The first picture is a fav or ours, Florida, then New Orleans, and then just a wonderful old west theme. By the time I was at a taste of Italy, I was full.
[IMG]This is a picture of me outside of the Thalia Mara Hall where I saw the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra (Bravo IV: the Grand Masters) featuring a very talented young violinist (24) named Augustin Hadelich who performed at Carnegie Hall in January. He is from Italy and was the Gold Medalist of the 2006 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis.
Finally, this is my artist daughter in an outfit that her older sister allowed her to go out in public in during x-mas holidays. I do not encourage such extreme expressions of her "artist" side, but I try to let her be as true to herself as "I" can tolerate. Her adult sister tries to ensure that I am not stifeling her creativity. But tell me: "We can see why artists suffer for their work" Those patterns hurt my eyes, but ain't she cute, the little artist thingy.
So the beat goes on. I told a young male waiter today at a restaurant that was listening at the conversation between my daughter and me about the symphony, he said, "It's nice to see people with varied tastes." I told him that when he marries I hope that his wife is adventurous so he won't be married to the same person for 40 years, his response "40 years?"
I always say enjoy nature and enjoy life. I should say try something new in nature and in life so that you won't be the same person for the next 40 years.
Next adventure, makeovers for the three divas, mom will sit this one out. The 14 year old is over the moon at the prospect of having on makeup. The 16 year old doesn't too much care for the outward exprssions of beauty and the eldest, stares at her reflection constantly with or without makeup.

Hi nice to meet you face to face dirt2diamonds. You have had a full two weekends .Sounds like you all had fun.Let the little artist be a child and enjoy it .She is only that young once.Its not unusual to see the young where all kinds of shirts and pants or skirts.Your daughter is right don't flip out to much on her dressing down.She is a cutie anyway what ever she has on.
Thank you for letting me take part in your everyday life. It's so nice to see you and yours. The girl is lovely, she's probably trying to stand out and blend in at the same time. Hard work, being a teen-ager.
I said it before, and I have to repeat myself here - I love your hair. It is gorgeous. You have lovely children. And to think one of them is a med student already.
Well hi there D2D - nice to see you!!! I love the outfit your daughter is wearing - just the thing for an art student. The teens around here wear much more expressive clothes than that and your daughters looks so much better than the t.shirts with slogans that they have over here.
Nice family pics! Looks as thought you all had an awesome reunion!
Our family likes each other as well as love each other and that is a good thing. I will take a breath and leave the little artist alone. I appreciate the feedback on the fact that she is not as as extreme as she could be. I can't wait to see the adults that the last two are going to become. I tell them to be happy in all that they choose to do or don't do it, but that artist one really goes for it.
