Been a While

Where have I been? Busy, busy, busy.

Mom came for a visit on the 4th. We had a great time. The Raceway (they do horse racing there) has a little free thing on the 4th for the town where they have some bouncy castles, food vendors and booths selling stuff. It turned out to be pretty lame but what do you expect when it's free! The firework display they put on was fairly good. Since the Raceway is so close we were able to walk about a half block over to the field and watch them from there. Seth didn't seem bothered at all by the loud booms. He was bothered by the fact that I wouldn't put him down. They have no sense of safety: it's dark, you move fast and I've already lost one kid on the 4th of July!

Yesterday we attempted a trip to the beach even though it was cool and raining off and on. I don't think we were there for more than 10 minutes before the rain picked up again. Mom has some great pictures on her blog though. Of course, it's all sunny today and it's supposed to be in the mid 80's.

I have plenty to keep me busy over the next week before we go to Denver. I have two quilts to pick up today and I want to get them bound before we leave. I have officially completed Ben and Susan's quilt, label and all! I hope they like it. I realized I have 4 quilts to take back with me. I'll need an extra suitcase just for quilts! I am worried something could happen to them. I wonder if I should ship them or trust that they won't get damaged or stolen?

If the quilts are finished in time, I'd ship them and insure them. Remember when we lived in Evergreen and I sold insurance for Fed X packages? Probably not. :) That would mean less for you to carry or check and you know the airlines are not known for being able to keep track of checked bags.
