Memorial day weekend...







It was a fun one and a busy one and the weather was sweet...for the most part. Saturday, the kids and I hit some garage sales. It is the season, they were everywhere. Liv was on the lookout for "the big score" according to Liv which means stuffed animals, her passion. She found them. Andrew found a "hot wheels size' school bus and I found some cool crafty stuff and a new keyboard as my old one is a sorry looking beast. It now as a new home in the garbage. The kids dad, Mark, came up on Saturday Evening and they were happy about that. Yesterday it was a group effort in the garden, we finally planted tomatoes and some flower seeds, then off to the beach. There was a pretty good breeze going or otherwise it would have been darn right hot. We all got in the water anyway and had a good splash and then the kids and I built fairy houses out of little pieces of wood and dried seaweed...A clam dig and bbq followed....Today was a pretty quiet day as we were up late last night. The kids watched a movie and I sewed...The other day I made a skirt for Liv from the new Better homes and Gardens "Quilts and More" issue and today I made a very pink quilted pillow....It is 18" and really pretty....I also cut out a couple pairs of shorts to sew up for Daniel. He is growing like crazy right now and eating like a horse or maybe two...So anyway, Happy Memorial Day everyone..........
