Happy 11/12 Birthday Eleanor!

Thank you all for all the great captions! We will have another caption contest soon. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, here are some pictures with captions already added to enjoy. Feel free to add your own captions if you really want to though.

This past weekend we went to visit Matt's parents and brothers and cats. On the way there, we stopped by Petit Jean State Park and hiked a trail that we have never been on before. We also showed Eleanor where we were married, but she wasn't overly interested. She's so self-involved. Here are a few pictures from Petit Jean.

Have you ever seen a tree eating a rock? Now you have.

Eleanor loved playing with the most laid back cat ever, Todd. She likes to "pet" animals, which is more like slapping. Todd barely even batted his eyes to her attacks.

Back home and picking out some reading material.

Eleanor really enjoyed swimming, but we didn't get a picture of her in the pool with our camera. She also liked the cows, the trampoline, and the porch swing.

My favorite conversation from the weekend:
We were chatting with John, a family friend who works at Wal-Mart. He was joking around that you could have anything done at a Wal-Mart super center, from your taxes to a haircut.
"It's actually the same person, they do your taxes while they cut your hair." (unsure origin)
Matt (imagining himself in the hypothetical shop): "No, no! The ten-ninty is the form I needed, not the haircut I wanted!"

Possible names for supposed Salon/Tax Center:

-FanTaxtic Sams
-H&R Blade (slogan--"Relax! The knife at your throat is a friendly one).
-Tax Cuts

Ben, taking a (decided) break between chapters of Eagleton's Lit. Crit.

Speaking of Wal-Mart, Molly just got the new book "The Wal-Mart Effect" that is really quite good. It's not hate-filled or overly negative like other publications, but also raises some great questions. Naturally there's an NPR interview with Charles Fishman, the author.
