Happy 4th of July !
The skies were dark and dreary this morning and threatening more rain. So...rather than stay at the lake, we decided to pack up and go home. And, of course, by the time we got home, the sky was turning blue and the sun was shining. We decided to spend the afternoon in Shipshewana. It turned out to be a beautiful day.
The boys decided they wanted to make a quilt (LOL!) so we bought some fat quarters at Lolly's Fabric Store. We've never made a quilt, so this should be a fun project. I told them it would take lots of time to finish a quilt, but they insisted. Perhaps we can make one or two and the boys can give them to their mom for Christmas. (We'll see!)
Here are two more pictures I took this afternoon:
Nothing says "summer" like a hanging basket of petunias.
Everyone was thirsty, so we took a "drink break". This little display was near the bench we sat on. (Birdhouses and pitcher-pumps seem to never go out of style.)
