Sunday our parents came over to our house for a birthday cook out. We had hamburgers with all of the fixin's. I was craving that for some reason... but boy did I eat too much! My eyes are bigger than my stomach!! Cory's mom made an oreo ice cream dessert... my mom made the cake... which meant, I ate even more! (OI!) It was a nice time though and I got a lot of sewing stuff! Yea!
Then on Monday... Cory took the day off to spend with me. He found a listing of different art studio/shops about an hour or so from here that we thought we'd check out. So we drove eastward and used the GPS to find these places. Unfortunately, of the 5 places we tried to go to... all of them were not clearly marked as part of the "tour" and we didn't want to go up to someone's house! That's what they were! People's houses... without signs or anything! So we kind of just nixed that idea and went to some different shops that I already knew about. We also went a little out of our way to visit my grandparents former cabin, which was sold not long after my grandpop passed away 7 years ago. I had been wanting to go back for a long time--but couldn't bring myself to do it. So we went and I sat on the swing set awhile. (There is a community pavilion and playground right near the house--but it's pretty much out in the middle of nowhere so it wasn't like there is an abundance of traffic through there). Here is a pic of the cabin--I didn't want to get too close and have the people freak out about a stranger snapping pics! (you can see the jungle gym from the playground) After stopping by the cabin... we went to a cool antique place and then drove out to a restaurant in a nearby town that my grammie used to take us to when we were growing up. (Guess I was a little nostalgic that day!) This place has a bunch of cool old carriages, sleighs and buggies on display! After a nice late lunch, we headed home to relax! It was a great day... especially getting to spend the day with Cory!!
Today, I am headed out to my dad's garage! Hope you have a good one!
