Worldwide Knitting Day

I don't know if anyone knows but today is Worldwide Knitting Day.  Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden was having a celebration of this day.  It was from 9-3.  The yarn shop I got to Cottage Yarn in Mint Hill, NC had a table there.  Sara Furr is the owner and she had a very busy day!  Here is a picture of Sara with another one of our knitting friends named Ginny.

 Outside they had 2 little Romney Sheep, Mama and 2 kids goats, Papa Goat was also there.

Here are the 2 little Romneys.  Aren't they cute-they look like Teddy Bears.

Mama Goat and her 2 kids.

Here is Ginny with her little Romney Sheep friend!

 This is a beautiful painted daisy at the Botanical Garden.  The flowers were so pretty!

I didn't take a picture of our table of knitters but Pam, Julie, Jenny, Sabrina, Ginny, Sara and I had an awesome day knitting, chatting and visiting.  Looking foward to next year!!

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!
