Sorry about the obvious lack of pictures. I'm tired because my family and I went to a carnival. Plus, the little one is crying because she thinks she's going to puke so I'm not really in the mood for the stress of getting pictures (plus my good source has failed me again. If it didn't you would have pictures).
