The Best Laid Plans....Ugh!!!!!


We are just back from a wonderful week in Yosemite. I thought I was so smart by typing up a post ahead of time and scheduled it to be posted while I was gone on the 17th. I thought I had typed the 17th....actually I had typed the 27th.......UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's some photos of our week, so much fun. Baby Polka Dot and his mom and dad joined us for a few days and we had a ball. What a great little camper he is and so much for him to point at. Then big excitement, he decided he just might as well start walking while he was there. It was so wonderful for both his mom and dad to see the big event. On day three I got a text from my sister in law saying that our nephew and his family were in the campground across the way so we got to have some fun with them, cards and horseshoes ...that was really a great surprise. Only thing missing was our girl, but with her new job it just wasn't in the cards this year. Our men folk made the hike up to Half Dome....17 miles!!!!! A great father/son memory made!!


Before leaving I did manage to work on my finish for the Charming Girls Quilt Club and also the August BOM for my basket quilt. The day before we left the BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop arrived so I am planning on tackling that this weekend. There was no sewing that happened all week so I am rearing to go!!
Missed you all very much and can't wait to catch up on all the bloginess. Happy weekend everyone!!!

Yosemite is so beautiful! We go to Bass Lake every year, which is nearby. It looks like you had a ball! My husband wants to climb Half Dome!

Looks like you all had a great time! Yosemite is so beautiful...I got to visit there when I was in fourth grade. I'd love to go back someday to see it all again! Enjoy your day! :0)

Love the vacation pics, esp the one of Lil Polka Dot having a bath! The strip set for the diaper bag is gorgeous as well as you basket block.
Enjoy your sewing time this weekend!

Camping is such fun. How exciting to see the baby take his first steps.
Very interesting block. Never seen that pattern before.
