What a Wonderful Weekend

Nothing on my design wall this Monday: see some of the reasons below.

If you read my last post, you would know that this weekend had a rough start. But when our DS#3 and DDIL arrived, late Friday evening, the fun began. At almost 9pm we were eating breakfast and catching up.

On Saturday morning we started the day learning about
tech toys. I let them play with both my iPad and Nook. Look how much fun they are having.

I suppose it is not fair to tempt people like that.

I think she tried almost every app I have, which is not a lot, yet.

We did a short tour our little town and then started out for DS#3’s twin sister’s. We, however, had to make a stop on the way. DDIL had never tried boiled

peanuts, a southern favorite,

so we stopped so she could buy some.

And then she ate half the bag. She just might make a good ole Southern gal yet.

As we drove up to DD’s this is what we saw.

Once again our DSonIL and his homemade grill.

We feasted on grilled chicken, yum!!

After dinner we were highly entertained by our great grandson, Skylar. In these pictures he is showing his Aunt Jessica and Uncle Todd how he uses “his” phone (good phone but not activated).

He plays games and takes pictures with it.

This was also when he was FINALLY running down from a high energy afternoon.

As we were leaving we had to have some “our twins” shots.

Some things never change.

And finally my one quilty picture.

Look what I won from Quilter Jan. The jelly roll is called Basic Gray by Moda. It looks like really neat fall fabric. And it came in this neat lunch box. I think I will use the box to hold ongoing applique pieces and the jelly roll will have to tell me what kind of quilt it would like to become. I kind of hope it waits a while since I am started in Christmas projects and need to get them really off and running.

Now go to Judy’s blog to see what others have been working on.

I love your blog! I found it through Cupcakes and Daisies.
Would you mind telling me what the name of the pattern is for your header picture? what a dynamic quilt! I'd love to make one. the checkerboard really sets it off!

I'm so glad DS finally made it there! Looks like a great day. Little man is adorable! And the bbq, I can't wait to show this photo to DH....the last pic got his wheels spinning. Love the twin pics.

Fun weekend. I lived in Montgomery for a year and never tried boiled peanuts. Though I did discover deep fried pickles! I miss them :(

Great, fun post. I want to know can I come south to get one of those "southern kitchen" grills? Looks like anything put on that would taste good.

We had a great time! (*this is me leaving a comment*) :0)

Glad they finally got there safely. I can eat boiled peanuts but they aren't high on my yum-o list. It looks like you had a wonderful time.

Sheryl said...

I'm glad they made it, Gari. It looks like you got a lot done in a short time.

What a fun weekend! Love the pictures of the twins joking around. I've heard of boiled peanuts...but never tried them.
