I was able to get the August Year of Whimsy finished up. I just LOVE this one. Definitely looks like he's ready for a warm August like what we've had. Right now the heat index is 103!! Crazy. I'm ready for the cool fall air to come any time now please.

Yesterday Mom and me went to a fun festival. It was a refurbished, up-cycled, vintage antique sale. There were probably 100+ vendors setup at this farm type grounds. Jeremiah and Fred went out to eat breakfast and then to our hometown Fort. They were doing a re-enactment type of event. They boys had fun. Now back to us girls. It was a 2 hour drive to get to the area (South Bend for those who know Indiana). We had an hour to go and the clouds let loose. It was pouring. But I said Let's keep going. So we did. When we pulled into the parking lot it was a mud pit. We were both so glad Jeremiah wasn't with us. We sure wouldn't have made it very far without ruining his wheelchair. But we had a blast. Yeah we got dirty. Yeah we go wet. But we laughed and had a blast. We found some Christmas gifts. We found a million ideas of fun crafts to do together with Jeremiah. The prices for most the stuff was just crazy when it's something you can make yourself if you know how to.

When we were finished shopping we got back to the van. We were very close to Laporte, Indiana which is the home to House of Stitches my FAVORITE stitching store. Mom had never been there before so she said Let's Go. I really had fun showing her around the store and she was enjoying being a Santa Claus and shopping. I helped but tried to look away as much as possible haha. Now the torture of waiting till Christmas!! On the way home we stopped at another Antique store that was high priced but we had fun looking around. We grabbed dinner and came home. Wow our legs are tired but what a great time we had.

  14. Your Year of Whimsy finish is just too cute! (I think I could have used a floaty like that one when a 10-year-old pushed me into my sister-in-law's swimming pool - fully clothed - last month!) Your trips to the festival and stitching shop sound like so much fun!
