WHAT WE DID: AUGUST 11th

Alright, here's the "real" What We Did for today. We've complimented y'all's photography skillz before, but now we're impressed by your photojournalism ability. You've captured the easy-going youth spirit that encapsulates much of Denton life so perfectly. Lounging on a trampoline with a cigarette while a dog looks away in shame is such a perfect moment of Denton life (you should probably stop smoking, though, lady). That, plus all of the other wonderful moments and hidden corners make this our favorite column to put together. And we're limited here, folks. While we love the photos we've selected to highlight, y'all should definitely take the time to search #WDDI on Instagram. You'll find so many great photos that we jsut didnt' have the space to showcase. 

Scroll down for some photo greatness from this week. Click the photos, themselves, to be led back to the photographer's Instagram account.  Tag your perfect Denton moments with #WDDI throughout the next seven days and then come back here next Monday to see another collection. 


The City of Denton Public Library's Reading Program celebrated the end of the summer with a free night at Waterworks Park with the folks who made it through all thirty days worth of reading (we actually read for more). It was a crowded night at the water park.

What an awesome building in Denton. While we love all of the historical homes and buildings in town. We'd love to see more structures such as this around.

Yeah, we know we've been stressing going inside the courthouse a lot lately. But have you actually done it yet? Once again, it's a beautiful building and you can scope it out for FREE dollars.

Oh yeah, while this isn't "butter stacking" by any means, two members of WDDI married one another this past Saturday at the courthouse. Shaina Sheaff was on hand to take some photos and we hung out at Hannah's afterward to celebrate. If you saw fancy-dressed folks walking around in the heat Saturday morning, that was us, but it was worth it.
