Let’s go fly a kite…

Let’s go fly a kite…

You know.  After a pretty awful week, the weekend turned out to be spectacular.  Really.  Having a plan, the beautiful weather and a picnic.  How much better could it be.

We have the best parks in our area, and because we are new, each one is an adventure.  We went on a ‘park-search’ and picked the first one we saw.  Granted, it was pretty small, even compared to the one right down our street, but it was perfect for us.  We put out our jean picnic blanket and ate our lunch.  *My youngest, who is 3 was really worried about Yogi Bear stealing our pic-a-nic basket.  {the kids had just watched that movie last week, LOL}  I had to assure him several times that I would protect the basket.

The weather was PERFECT kite flying weather and in no time all the kites were up in the air!  Yay! {I just bought the cheap plastic kites and they were great! Plus we lost two to the trees, so I was glad I hadn’t spent a fortune.}

I didn’t get any sewing done, but we did make it to two other parks.  There isn’t quite anything like a nice day in the sun.

It really was perfect.  Thank you all for encouraging me to just GO, and for all the sweet condolences.  The quilting community is just the best.  I am so glad to be a part of it.  Thanks.

Now, I am off to pack my bags for SALT LAKE CITY, baby!  Can you believe it is already that time?!?!  QUILT MARKET, here I come!  I am getting so excited! I have so many fun things planned out there.  I will try to snatch up some new fabric {from sample spree} and bring you back a little treat and we can have a giveaway right here on the blog!  Doesn’t that sound fun!?!?

I hope you all have had a fabulous weekend, a happy Mother’s Day and a great week ahead!

We’ll talk soon.
