This summer the Harford County Parks department did a Summer Challenge. Each time you visited one of the parks, you were to take a selfie and submit it online. At 7, we got t-shirts, at 11 we were entered in a drawing for a Pontoon boat ride and at 15 we were entered in a drawing for a year membership to the science museum. We accomplished 16! Here are the photos of our visits.
This summer, miraculously, I found time to create a couple of new quilts for friends. We knew one of the babies was going to be a boy and that his room would be a Harry Potter theme. I found some ideas on Pinterest and thought that I would try those. I had collected HP fabric for a while thinking that I would do one with lots of different fabrics but quickly realized I wanted to do something a little more challenging. These are what I turned out in a short amount of time.
The third quilt I did was not originally intended for the family it was sent to this summer. I started for someone else and quickly realized they were not going to appreciate all of the work that went into this quilt. I was so happy that this one found a home and a home that it was greatly appreciated by the recipient. I can’t wait to see pictures of little Josh with this quilt.
This quilt was super challenging because of how I decided to put it together. I didn’t think it would take as much time as it did either. I will say I learned a lot from this quilt though and I am happy that I completed one that was so challenging to me.
Sean had been really wanting to visit this zoo and we were happy to fit a visit in this summer. It was fun for me to see a place that he visited and went to camp when he was little.
Zoodle Pasta with veggies
This was a dish I had at a restaurant and recreated at the house.
Zoodles with red and green peppers, red onions, tomatoes, cilantro, lemon juice and a tiny bit of oil with grilled chicken and feta cheese. OH so good!
