Our favorite Rose around here is not featured in this bouquet:
She won the El Dorado Rose pageant at the El Dorado County Fair last Thursday night in Placerville!
Lori and I had acted like we weren't going to be able to make it, and had hoped to surprise her, but she spied me when I was up at the library waiting for the fair shuttle.
Oh, well - I tried!
There were eight of us family members in attendance.
We are so proud of her, and we were all so excited when she won!
Here she is cutting the cake::
Can't have everything, I suppose.
We have a real winner in our family, and that's enough for us!
