Summer Fun!
















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!

Little Boy looks like he is in hog heaven running in the sprinkler. What a treat to see!

Sounds like you are having a grand time.

Sounds like you've been really busy. I'm betting you spend the rest of the summer with Little Boy playing in the sprinkler! You've started something now! :)

Welcome back! I figured that darling Little Boy was keeping you busy. I just love the pure joy the kids have playing in water with such abandon. It's a good thing you are recording all of this, what a fun time in yours and his life.

looks like you're having fun whether you're sewing or not :-) The picture of little boy brought a smile to my face as I recalled my son and the sprinkler days...

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one not getting much sewing done. I've got another trip coming up but next on my list is to quilt a top for my Aunt.

Happy birthday, Little Boy! I can just imagine the squeals and hippity-hops through the sprinkler :)
Glad the fund-raiser party was a success!

Thanks for the memory!!

Aww, they look so much younger when they're not in copies of grown-up clothes! I bet you wore him out that day!
