Totoro on the Bridge!!

Jackie crocheted this amigurumi and also a smaller version as a gift for Rachel. This character is Totoro, a character from the anime, "My Neighbor Totoro." This happy portrait was taken in Island Park on a bridge that goes over the Fox River. The girls are in bokeh in the background.


Rachel's birthday was a success!! In the comments, you will see the cake the girls decorated. Now you see why they insisted on baking in the heat! A store-bought cake just wouldn't do! We had a wonderful day yesterday. Rachel insisted on her cake at 10:30 AM ... there were no complaints! Then we spent the rest of the day shooting photos in several area parks. We topped off the day with dinner at Meson Sabika, a tapas restaurant ... and then took her to the airport. Many tears ...


Happy Toy-in-the-frame Thursday!!
