mother daughter time

Last weekend I went with Whitney and her brownie troop for an overnight. We spent the day walking around Greenfield Village. It is like Conner Prairie for you Hoosiers.

Whitney at the weiner mobile at the Henry Ford Museum.

The girls got to ride in an old Model T car, they thought it was great.

That night, we all stayed in a dorm type room. 12 girls and 11 parents from our troop and another troop. It was a ton of fun, and I actually got more sleep then I thought I would. There is no picture available to describe that scene. Lights were out at 10:30, girls asleep by 1:00 I think. The next morning we spent at the Henry Ford Museum. Unfortunately, we were all to tired to care to much by that point. Whitney and I had a great time together and that is all that matters.
Dana, are you proud of all my posts????

Party Like Rock Stars

That was the theme of this years Memorial Day Party in Canton. We could not have asked for more perfect weather with our 17 guests for the weekend! We had alot of cousins missing. They are getting older, and have lots of things going on in their lives. We missed them all and wished that they could have joined us.

WE rented a bounce house for the kids. Therefore, drawing every kid within a 2 mile radius of the house. We had corn hole and ladder ball (hillbilly golf to some) for the bigger kids. We grilled out, drank lots, had a campfire, laughed till there was liquid coming out of us, sorry Trish :) It was chilly at night, and sunny during the day, could it get more perfect for us to spend time with family, dont think so. We are so blessed that our family makes the trip each year. Here are some pics to show you the fun.

Laura and Gabs, my little Trinket.
