Progress on Sunflower Inn

Hello! We are home from vacation. We had a wonderful time. Beach every day, boardwalk everynight. The kids loved it! The weather was perfect and it was a really great week.

I even got a little stitching done every morning. And, what was extra nice about that is that I got to stitch with my Mom! We are the early birds of the family so every morning we would meet outside on one of our front patios (we stayed in two different condo units) and stitch from about 6:15 am until the first of my kids appeared - usually around 7:30). I wish I had gotten a picture of us but since there was no one else up....and, that's what made it relaxing and fun, I never got a picture. We drank our coffee, chatted and stitched. What a nice way to start each vacation day. Here is what I got done last week.

And, here is my husband leading the kids to another night of adventures on the boardwalk.
This week is going to be another busy one - all 3 kids need physicals for school and sports on Tuesday, I am taking my oldest daughter for an orthodonture consultation on Wed. She's a big thumbsucker so she'll probalby need a palette expander this fall (there goes the stitching budget ;-) Then my son starts Flag Football - practice is every Tues, Wed and Thurs nights from 6-7:30 until school starts!!! It's my husband's and my father's birthday Wed night. And Thursday I am taking the kids to visit family in VA Beach for a long weekend. Somewhere in there I hope to get some stitching done!
Hope you are well and thank you so much for stopping by! Mere
