Wow! I can't believe how long it's been since I've written a post.
Something about Summer this year has my head in the clouds.
My family and I have been having a great time this season...
Ernie has been growing and growing, already walking!
I've definitely stepped back from my hook and the computer to focus on him and enjoy his babyhood.
I suppose my Summer started during "late spring" but whose paying attention really?
My Mother came for a visit and was able to spend some real quality time with Ernie (and Me!).
The three of us took a wonderful trip to Hendersonville, NC where we have a family cabin. The trip was really great until .... we all got sick! We ended up cutting our trip a week short and went back home to recuperate. A sad turn of events, but I'm choosing to remember the happy times we did have!
I love seeing and spending time with my Mom!

|Pitcher Plants outside our cabin. Love them every spring!|
|My Parents got their Marriage license here.|
|Beautiful Downtown Hendersonville. I would love the call this town home permanently.|
|The Black Bear is the kind of mascot for Hendersonville.|
After my Mother went back to Florida it was time for a family vacation! Just Me, my husband and Ernie. This is the first REAL vacation we have ever had as a family. It was GREAT! We decided to visit a place neither of us had ever been - Charleston, South Carolina. What a great town! I really loved it. So much history and great places to eat! Not to mention BEACHES! A must ingredient for a Floridian on vacation. Ernie got his first taste of ocean and sand at the beach!
As a Florida girl I was so happy to share that with him. We even "built" a small dribble sand castle.
I can't wait to go back. . . I miss it already! This may become our summer vacation "spot."
Moving along ... the second weekend in June our town hosts the Seedtime on the Cumberland Festival. Typically I have a craft booth where I sell my crocheted toys and various other handmade items.
This was the first year I didn't have a booth.
It was hard, but also pretty nice because I was able to relax and enjoy my time at the festival.
|Taking a break at the local pub!|
|Lots of great old-time(american) and bluegrass performers!|
We have, of course, been up to many other things ... swimming and visiting neighboring towns.
However, sometimes you just need to put the camera down and enjoy the day as it is. . .
Hope you all are having a glorious summer!
I am working on some new patterns ... I PROMISE!
I will post as soon as Ernie lets me... ;)
