Company has arrived!

I just got a call from my Mom. They have made it to the townhouse and let themselves in. My Mom, middle sister and nephew are here for a visit until Sunday morning. We have alot planned and I hope we can cram it all in! I will be off work Wed., Thurs. and Fri-WOOHOO! A full 5 days off from work-YAY! The things we have planned so far are: Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont, NC, a trip to see the pottery in Sea Grove, NC, IMAX Theatre uptown to see the Grand Canyon story, my sister and nephew are going with my 2 girls panning for gems (the girls went last summer and Megan found a huge garnet!). My nephew should really enjoy that, he loves adventures like that. We will probably go to the Hobby Lobby store. My Mom wants to show me some new painting techniques too. WHEW, that is alot to do in such a short time! It will be hard for me to post during their visit, but I will check in occasionally. I hope we get internet at the new house soon, running over to the old house is a pain! Everyone have a wonderful day-hope the sun is shining where you are!

Sounds like you have a wonderful visit planned. I know I'd enjoy panning for garnets, seeing the botanical garden and checking out Hobby Lobby. Have fun.

Panning for gems? Now that sounds like a ton of fun! Gosh! I haven't been to a Hobby Lobby in forever. We don't have Michaels here in Hawaii either. I miss those stores.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
