My fiancee, Joe, is from State Center, a small town about 45 minutes away from here and every year the third weekend of June is the towns Rose Festival , and since we had Mal we thought we might go this year and see what kind of photo ops we could find. Turns out there were none. Huh. Well, anyways, we did get the chance to meet up with his little sister Amanda, and her 4 month old daughter, Layla, and her and Mal just hit it off! Which is good since Layla doesn't quite know what to think of me or her "goofy uncle Joe and his bright red Willy Wonka hair".
