Where Has the Summer Gone?

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I've updated my Blog. Let me see if I can catch up a bit. Ok, first of all the big event for the month of June was my trip to Washington, DC which was totally awesome. There was so much to see, a lot of walking, a lot of steps to climb.....but it was well worth it. We got to sit in on a session of the House of Representatives in the Capital Building.

President Obama was a little too busy to have us for afternoon tea, but we got some awesome pictures of the White House. We visited museums, cathedrals and cemeteries. There was so much to see and so little time.

I got back just in time to pack for my two week vacation stay on the beach in July. Yes, it was off to Treasure Island, FL for some fun in the sun. I got to relax with my grandchildren, nieces, and other family members, as well as see some old friends.

I got back from vacation just in time to head over to Orlando to the Fiskar's 360th Birthday Celebration, which was held at Epcot in Disney World. We had an absolute blast. Fiskars knows how to throw a party. We had a scavenger hunt, an enormous goody bag full of Fiskar product. We did make and takes. We had an excellent dinner, followed by a big birthday party. The night was topped off with a Fireworks show. It was so great to meet some of the other fiskateers who enjoy doing scrapbooking and cards as much as I do.

And we all know the old saying....."All good things must come to an end." Well, I got a phone call saying my 80 year old Mom had fallen out of her wheelchair and broken her femur. Needless to say my last few days have been filled with going to and from the hospital. After 12 days, though, she has progressed enough to be moved to a rehab facility. God is so good.

I have great hopes that I might be getting back to some scrapbooking in the near future; but time can only tell.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my summer events. Maybe next time I'll post some projects I've completed.
