I think I was in a time warp!

I'm baaack, I think I was in a time warp! This past month has passed me by in a big whooosh!
Labor Day weekend Jerry and I drove on down to OKC to visit our daughter Erin and her little family. Our daughter Melissa drove up with the twins to spend the day also, what a huge treat for us to be with ALL our Grandsons at once!! Such fun, with 3 boys who are 3 years olds, it was interesting to observe their very different little personalities. And Alex being 5 is the mentor to all! Erin and Ryan prepared a wonderful BBQ dinner for us, such a treat for me to be cooked for! Here are the boys are sitting down to eat, I think they were too worried about playing to take time to eat!

Erin is a part time art instructor at the Oklahoma City Museum Of Art. She took Jerry and I to view a new exhibit at the museum and check out her classroom. The museum also houses the most comprehensive collection of Chihuly glass in the world, the exhibits are breathtaking!

Back home again we rushed to get ready for company. You know the routine, cleaning and groceries, preparing to make our guests comfortable. Our good friends were flying in from Buffalo NY and we were really looking forward to their visit!
We had a wonderful 5 day visit with them. The weather co-operated, Indian summer at it's best!
The boys golfed, we ate dinner out quite a bit, we chattered and laughed ALOT!
One of our favorite spots to take company is the Plaza in Kansas City. I love having dinner sitting outside at the Cheesecake Factory on a pretty day by the big fountain. Feels so European.

The flowers were vivid and just beautiful!

We also spent an afternoon at KU, visiting son Jon and his cute girlfriend Carly. We all had lunch and toured the campus. I love to soak up the feel of a campus, such energy, so many young people LOL!

And that's what I have been up to people! Gallivanting!
And now it is time to get back in my normal mode. I am sewing, and sewing. Just finished a design for little girls and EEEEKS is it CUTE I must say, can't wait for show and tell! Which means pattern writing is next on the list. And sewing FOUR Batmen costumes LOL!
Have a happy week!
