Saturday's adventures

And away we go!

Greta and Anna finished their soccer games yesterday. I forgot my camera and am waiting for parent's to share pictures. Will post those as they come in.
In the meantime: Greta got her first goal this season! It seems she does really well when she's upset with me. After I chastised her for not playing as well as I/we know she can, she went out there and kicked that ball all over the field. I'm wondering if she was 'seeing' me as she kicked it...

Next, we returned a HUGE diesel pick-up that Tony used while playing/acting as Apartment Manager while the original apartment manager was recuperating from a nasty car accident in April. Really long story short: Mike was in a rollover accident, life flighted to KU Med Center, Dr's weren't sure if/when/how he might recover. Lucky for him, his family and friends he is just about 100% recovered. A miracle indeed! Anyway ~ brought back the truck, visited their many animals which include a horse, a rooster, a turkey, 13 adult sheep, app. 7 lambs (yes, awww...) Big(some kind of Mastiff) and Otto (mini doberman)...

After, we stopped by the airport as Lawrence Municipal Airport is celebrating 80 years. Holy cow! They were offering rides with donations going to Make a Wish. There's no way Tony or I could leave the airport w/out getting into a plane. So, the four of us loaded up w/ Dick Martin flying his plane. Thank you Mr. Martin! We flew over Lawrence and got some neat pictures of our house

(can you see the new garden spot in the upper right corner?)

Lawrence, coming in for a landing...

What a beautiful day.

Next, we headed over to Pendleton's to pick some of the FREE asparagus due to the hail storm on Friday night. We got there a little late for picking it. If you are local, be sure to sign up for Karen's newsletters ~ then you, too, can get the scoop on what's happening before anyone else. : ) So we missed picking the asparagus, but, we got to see this spring's litter of kittens, tasted purple asparagus (sweeter than the green), and found some annuals for the garden that I forgot to get at the Plant/Bake Sale earlier this month.

Next, (seriously??) we found Davenport Winery. It's off 1057, not far from Pendleton's.
We did a little wine tasting before heading back out and over to a friend's home for a birthday party. Which was the last stop for the day.

Now I've got to get back out to the beautiful day and finish planting tomatoes. Tony's tilling the garden up in the field w/ the tiller. He's having a field day (pardon the pun)with this thing. More on that as it progresses...

Lawrence makes owning a Hedgehog legal

(This one's for you Alex!)
Some of you have seen this on the news. Some have heard about it. A young boy here in Lawrence wanted a hedgehog. It is illegal to own them in city limits. Until now...

You'll have to watch the whole thing as she's at the end.

I don't know what I was doing wrong when I was putting in links for you to get to the goodies elsewhere in cyberspace. I apologize if you were getting frustrated with me and this blog. I do believe that I have the links fixed now.
If there is one that you were trying to get to (the contests, the coupons, the freebies) and still cannot, please leave a message here and I will get to it as quick as I can.

Sock Hop

The girl scouts at GG's elementary school hosted a sock hop this past weekend. A father/daughter event. I was able to attend as photographer.

They were dancing, hoola hooping, had a bubble blowing contest... they even got their picture taken with Elvis!

It looked like a success and the girls were all talking about how fun it will be again next year. Guess it might turn into an annual thing?

I made the skirts for GG and her friend KVC. I must say, the pattern was very easy to read and they were so much fun to make. The girls were thrilled and looked adorable!
