Those are some sex-ay boots!

Enjoy the slow spiral from summer to fall before it starts spinning too fast :)

Many smiley things. :)

cath c said...

you could almost make me want to move away from the coast with these shots of your funky town.

love the sunflowers!

and the cow balcony and pretty bike...

suzanne cabrera said...

What? You don't have a balcony with a cow? I thought everyone did!!!!!

I could eat that little window shopper. SOOOOOOOO sweet!

Lisa said...

So much yumminess in your life!! Wow.

Huh. I'm happier now. go figure - thanks!

Kirstin said...

I want a cow for my deck! How cool is that?! What lovely, interesting photos!

S.E.Minegar said...

love the little girls' clothing choices! so bright! ...and all of those silly bands.

Snuskebassa said...

That is so cool! Love your pictures, thinking that everyone should have a cow :-)

Eden said...

I so wonder if the cow-people had any idea that the cow was not an inside cow when they bought it??? Too funny! And that bike is so darned pretty!! Thanks for sharing your finds :D

la ninja said...

holy wow.
cow.

Sharon said...

First, I have to say that I love the photo of the little girl in the tutu dress! Precious! Also, never heard of a people powered pedal hopper bus. Is it a real bus that is run on people power? I'm in awe and want more photos!

Regina said...

Ok, love that people powered bus with the bar!!!! In a word; Brilliant.

aimee said...

it is indeed a bike with a bar! but it is, alas, dry for the moment - it's against kansas law to drink & roll.

here's the article if you're interested!

Aimee - you live in the PERFECT town for YOU! You are 2 peas in a pod. And that bus - how fantastic is that???? I would ride that bus...and hope that my pedalling offset the bulk that is me! ;-)

rachel awes said...

Diana Trout {Nan.DT@verizon.net} said...

Love everything about this post and especially the tutu!

Christine E-E said...

wow - never seen a pedal-hopper people powered vehicle... how does it work? I don't understand.
love the green rim on that bike...

Giggles said...

Beautiful perspective, adorable summer clothes, and yummy painted shoes!

aimee said...

thanks everyone!! the bus is intriguing indeed! it was modeled after something called the pedal pub in minneapolis. there is one driver (the sober one) who steers and turns. the passengers enjoy the bar on board and provide the pedal power as commanded by the driver.

here in kansas, though, they can only have food and non-alcoholic beverages, which they're lobbying hard to change. in the meantime, i can only assume that the patrons get sotted somewhere else beforehand.

Shannon said...

oooooh your life is so fun and colorful.

Beth Niquette said...

Bella Sinclair said...

Tell me, please. Is there a house for sale in your neighborhood? You must be, by far, the BEST tourism promoter in Lawrence. How fabulous are these photos! I love the flower shoes in the top photo. The cow? Awesommmmmme, as is that fancy balcony. And the pedal bus??? What the heck?! Hahahahaha! I want one for my garage. For me and my 20 closest friends. Hey, nice boots, chica!

Nicky Linzey said...

Brilliant bus - never seen anything like it. I want a go!

Jane said...

Awesome photos Aimee! Love the boots and the idea of crochet. I tried to sign up for a local crochet class but it was full :((

AG Ambroult said...
