It's The Most WONDERFUL Time of Year!!!

Last weekend, Judy and I went to CT for our favorite weekend of the year.... The Scrapbook Summit at the Simsbury Inn. We look so forward to this weekend starting on our drive back home from the one that just ended!
We arrived on Friday this year as there was scrapping available then but the real crop didn't officially start until Saturday.
This year we were put in a small room with 4 tables of 4 people. It was a bit strange at first but as we got to know everyone, we relaxed, had lots of laughs and thoroughly enjoyed the small room.
We got to have our meals with our CT friends that we've met through the years.
The dessert table is always so beautiful!
Judy and I always share a drink on Saturday night to celebrate us being there together.
On Sunday, besides the omelet station, carving station, chafing dishes etc, they always have a station of different antipastos and salads.
I'm so glad that they have dates for next year set already
This woman was in our scrap room. She won first prize for a craft item. She made a beautiful clock.
This is our room.
One of the first people that we met in our room was Christine. She introduced herself as the Mayor and was so helpful to EVERYONE. She was VERY funny as well!
This is Sandy. We met Sandy 3 years ago. Her daughter works for Disney also. She's very sweet. She was also in our room this year.
It's always sad to say goodbye to our friends. Until next year.........

Gardening Gone Wild April contest.... LIGHT

This months theme on the Gardening Gone Wild photo contest is LIGHT. The photos that I took in the last few weeks didn't really show light as I wanted them to. I then went through my pics of the past and came up with 2 that I thought showed light in different ways. The first is of Jones Beach, one of my favorite places in the world. Lucky for me, it's only 5 minutes away! The beach is beautiful during any season, day, time and any weather condition.

My second photo is of our campfire during a camping trip at Robert Treman State Park. With my eyes, I can't tell if it's blurry or not!

I will go with my first photo.

What a 'day brightener'! The guy that writes this blog, is the father of a 15 year old boy.
As a joke, he dresses in a different costume every day to wave at the school bus... and embarrass his son! He started it in August and hasn't missed a day, with a different costume each day!
Everyone loves him including all the kids on the bus!


Day One - waving goodbye on the first day of school

The high school bus route now goes down our street! Dale and I enjoyed standing on the front porch and waving at our son as the bus went by this morning. No better way to make your teenage son smile on his first day of school, right?

And so it goes... day by day with pictures of every day, every costume!
