|Our tour guide was surprised by how engaged the girls were. I guess most school children that go through the museum don't love history like ours do. And I'm guessing he doesn't have a whole lot of experience with homeschoolers....|
|Theresa got to play a hundred year old pump organ. She played "White Coral Bells" -- an arrangement of her own.|
I have it in video, but I stupidly filmed it sideways. Let me know if anyone wants me to post it, anyway..
|"I'm that survivor -- you know -- the one with the white hat|
and those things that hold your pants up..."
|If you know Gabe, you know he was perfect for the part|
of the meticulous Captain Smith. (And the uniform fit...)
Cathy's opened a restaurant on our back porch. It's called "Cathy's Diner." She got permission for food she could use, made the menu, cleaned the porch, dragged tables and chairs out from who knows where, decorated, waited tables, cooked, and cleaned it all up when she closed up. Good food, too. If you happen by, you'll have to stop in! But, take note: this is a special kind of diner...
|No kiddin' -- you have to have a pair skates. And be able to eat while using them...|
(I had mine catered...)
These are the beautiful roses Dan got me for our anniversary, May 2nd: twenty-five for each year we've been married + eleven for each child = thirty-six altogether! They didn't last nearly long enough (like forever!), but no worries, because Mother's Day falls right after our Anniversary. (How appropriate is that?)
Here are all the goodies I got Mother's Day: More roses (does my husband know what I like, or what?), plus dinner out and a stroll around Ouray, our favorite mountain town. Scads of beautiful, homecrafted cards and gifts. And lotsa lovin.
