No, we haven't fallen off the face of the earth, we are just very busy! Here is a shot of Little Boy playing in a sprinkler for the first time - what fun! He had a blast!
We finally made it to the States - despite mostly rain, we also had some nice weather. One night we stayed along the coast of Maine in a wonderful hotel - right on the water - for a seriously discounted "off-season" rate, even though we are into June. Got to love that! We had some great visiting time with the cousins - the next generation which is neat to see, my sisters and my Dad. And I hit a super sale at Joanne's fabrics - I got mostly batting at 50% off, but also fabrics - mostly backings, an Ott Light (with a 50% off coupon), sewing patterns, and some other goodies - all stuff on my shopping list though (including those safety pins I needed)!
Little Boy has turned 3 and had an Elmo birthday cake, the only thing he wanted for his birthday. He was thrilled with the cake!
And, we hosted a big party with somewhere just over 80 guests - lots of food and prep and a good time had by all! Our party was to benefit our local musuem and they raised over $600 in donations, which is excellent, plus more members joined and it also raised an awareness about the musuem.
Absolutely no sewing getting done at all!
