Julie sent me more current photos of Abigail and included some from their trip over to Port Austin, in Michigan's Thumb, and also where Julie grew up. Her parents have a farm and Julie's horse lives there until the kids sell their homes (yes, Julie's condo is still up for sale...sigh, plus their house is now, too) and they can find a farmstead to buy.
Here is Julie with Abigail. I "think" this is the first time Abigail has been on a real horse. Patrick did tell me that Abigail's Michigan Grandparents bought her a "rocking horse" of her own, but I believe this is her first "real" horse.
A shrug I knit and sent to Maniphone. Pretty nice fit, eh? ;) Jonathan had a suggestion for her as to how to wear it, but I won't go into it here. A really interesting suggestion though.........I guess the stories about "those quiet ones" has a ring of truth to it. ;)
Maniphone and Henry at his tennis lesson. He celebrated his 4th Birthday a few weeks ago. Where does the time go???
Last Sunday we rode over to the Willy Street Fair. Here is a photo of "Navan" a Celtic singing group. We first met Elizabeth (2nd from right) and husband Adam (not shown) when they were at Lonny and Charlie's one night, then had a chance to chat with them once again while at Lonny and Charlie's baby shower. As you can see, they too, are expecting a child soon. Both Don and I enjoy them very much.....the couple AND Navan! ;)
Don noticed this growing on a tree in our backyard and took some photos of it. Truly a beautiful organic shape! He, in my opinion (and I'm sure in many others), is an excellent photographer.
