Tim and Venita visit

Tim and Venita and their family were here in Maryland visiting Tim's mother a week ago. They came over for dinner (we BBQ'd chicken using Grandpa Larson's famous chicken recipe!). We also had homemade icecream....raspberry and peach! Yum!! Tricia, Brent, Amy and Joey came over too. We had a nice evening. After dinner the kids played crochet out on the back lawn...unfortunately, Lizzie got stung by a yellow jacket. Darn that bug!! Poor Lizzie :o( Of course I forgot to pull out the camera!

The next day, after a doctor's appointment I met Venita and the family up at Gettysburg. They have a new museum up there. They had already been through it, but I told Gordon that we need to go back up there to see it. But anyway - we went over to the outlets and had lunch and proceeded to do some shopping! It was fun just to hang out and visit with them. We then went to Tim's mother's favorite restaurant and I had my first soft-shell crab sandwich! Interesting is all I can say! At least I can say I have had one.

Later that same week, I hosted a meeting for my longarm quilting group. I made this fruit tart for the first time. It was sooooo good! Plus it was pretty too.
I cut these flowers from the side of my house. Look how big they are!
