Visit with my Sister

This weekend my sister came home from CT for a visit.  Friday night I made dinner and we had a picnic with her family and my mother and my husband and I.   Lindy's oldest son has two boys who are both under 3 years of age, they are a lot of fun. 

Saturday my sister Lindy and her daughter Meg and I enjoyed an antique show.  The weather was perfect and the vendors had a lot of good stuff.  I'll show what I got later this week. 

Today we decided to go to the Snyder County Historic Museum.  It is a museum with local history and was rather enjoyable.  Lindy has to read everything so it takes her a lot longer than it takes me, but she did point out a lot of things I would have missed.  We did learn quite a few things that we didn't know about our local history. 

We finished off our day trip at the local winery and purchased a couple wines that we liked.

I had a very nice weekend but unfortunately I ate all weekend and didn't count one calorie!  I'll be back on the wagon tomorrow, for sure.

Todays photos are from the museum, Lindy and Meg looking at the Civil war display and the gallows that were used back in the early 1900's.

My sister posted some of her recent craft projects and asked me what I am working on.  I haven't done anything creative in quite awhile, unless you count Thursday night's cupcakes!!!   I needed to make cupcakes for a church event and decided to try something somewhat creative with the cupcakes!  I divided the batter and colored it and  came up with these!   The kids liked them.

Evan's 1st Birthday

Today I spent a relaxing afternoon at a birthday party for my great nephew, Evan who happily turned 1.  The party was outside and the weather was great, not to hot or to cool.... My nephew and his wife have a group of friends who all have children....there were 15 lively kids who enjoyed all the water toys and "stuff" that two small children have.   Here is a sampling of some of the kids playing on the sliding board.

There was also a kiddie pool that squirted water, a big ball that was some kind of fountain, a water table, swing set, assorted balls and riding toys, something for everyone...  All these children were very entertaining and they got along great! 

Here is a photo of Evan enjoying the gift I gave him.
Happy Birthday Evan, I hope you have many, many more!!!
