This is the first time Aunt Kathy has ever been to my house, so I was pretty busy getting it ready for her visit. I am so glad we got together here as we all really enjoyed the visit .It turned out really good . After awhile all the younger ones went next door to Kevin's with the little kids to give us older ones a chance to talk . Royce & Lou hit it off right away as they both had alot in common talking about the VietNam war.
My aunt can write a better story and has one on her blog, I will get that down later ,we talked about quilting, sewing ,our time with the costume shop, what we do now and etc, I showed her some quilts she has only seen pictures of and a couple new ones. I gave her a small wall hanging of an old school room .She was pleased about that. She also liked the Farm quilt I had in the weekly contest this past weekend .And really liked the beaded one !
There was so much I wanted to show her and talk about, but the afternoon went by too quickly and they had to leave . I had plans to show her the church mural up close ,that will have to wait another another time , I sure hope we can do this again next time they come to Florida. They were going to stay a few more days in Tampa then heading to her son's house and then go to NASA for a visit and then on their way back to Wellsboro ,PA. ,Our home town .She said we all need to go back up there to visit and I am more than willing to go ,so we plan to start another saving to go again. Hopefully by car or Van this time and not worry about a train. But I don't think I want to be the Driver this time .
Kathy's blog is ...... http://ontheroadwithlouandkathy.blogspot.com or just look on my list of followers off to the side and it will be there
I was worried about it being too hot so my daughter-in-law & I put up a canopy , and we had 3 fans going too, so it was fine ,I don't think anyone complained about the heat. We was going to go borrow tables and chairs from the community center, but when Rexa got here, her and the kids all got extra tables and chairs from in here and around the house , as you can see the little girls were all seated at a bench with milk baskets for seats ,they loves it !.
All in all it was a great day ! Just hated to see it end .So now back to making quilts!
