Oh, which to choose?
Elizabeth wanted the prettiest one
Adelaide chose what reminded her of the "naughty" bear from the new movie Brave.
How can anyone be anything but happy on a carousel?
We are a map family. Every trip we've taken we have pictures of Patient Husband standing on a corner with a street map unfolded in front of his face to help us get our bearings. My son is now a geographer.
When I turned and saw Adelaide and Grandpa, I couldn't resist the photo op.
Elizabeth: "Adelaide!! They have Crush here!!"
Keeping up when you're 2 1/2 can tire a little girl out.
Last night we had friends over that we haven't seen in years. Time, moves across country, life...it all gets in the way. But we did it last night.
Friend Harry - far right in the hat - has a tradition going back 10 years with his sons of finding an obscure pre-prohibition long forgotten by the masses beer and having a tasting/judging on the 4th of July. He brought with him last night this year's selection for the guys to try.
What is this stuff???
Patient Husband (in stripes) told me this morning that it was declared "old fashioned...passable" by the guys.
We made two paellas. One with chicken and sausage...
...and one with shrimp.
PH and I like having paellas when we have a crowd. It's a crowd pleasing one dish meal that always gets it's picture taken!
My gosh we had a good time last night.
As you can see from this busy week, I haven't gotten much quilting done.
