Friday Finish!

 I was able to finish a project this week, a design by Cheri Saffiote. The original was more of a colored drawing on fabric, so I colored mine and outlined with black floss. I changed the layout by adding the saying and mittens to the side, to make it a bit longer. 

Last weekend was Riverfest at Mystic Seaport. I was excited to take the boys, but was told they had a party that day. So, we went by ourselves and found out later, they had the wrong date, so the boys could have come. 

It was nice though, lots of fun for the kids with rides and activity, but we just enjoyed the cool breezes and the live music, while we walked around. One of the highlights was Newfoundland dogs, they pulled the kids in carts and also did rescue training, so that was fun to watch.

Today we went to the island and walked the beach and spent time at the rocky end. Bean enjoyed playing on the open beach areas and I did a little glass hunting and bird watching.

At home, I was greeted by our resident Cardinal. He wasn't happy that the feeder was empty and let me know. I see a lot of areas are having heat waves, we are hot, but we also have ocean breezes. Tomorrow is another big event at the seaport, a Jules Verne exhibit, with a submarine and other fun things for the kids. Hopefully nothing goes wrong and we will be able to take the boys for a few hours. I hope everyone has a nice weekend.
