my camera died after the quilt show and i forgot my charger... go figure
we traveled into the mountains with family last weekend. it was a wonderful trip. we went to a quilt show in the most adorable little town. we played family games of badminton and croquet. we swam in the pool... a lot... and it was HOT... it felt so wonderful to experience some heat. we relaxed. we watched old movies (vhs movies). we gathered together with even more family that we hadn't seen in quite a while. it was truly a wonderful trip, and we are hoping to plan another (longer) one before the summer is over.
but of course... coming home was just as wonderful as getting away.
we realized that badminton was a blast with a now 8 and almost 10 year old... and had to get our own set for the backyard. we didn't think about the wind we get though... so our games are always a little off... but still perfectly fun. and now with the next two weeks at home (although still very busy) i'm hoping to find some time to slow down and enjoy some creative time.
