What a weekend I had. It was busy from the start and now that's it has come and gone, I can say, 'It was a good busy.' The weekend began like a racehorse out of the starting gate. Friday marked the last day of summer camp. It went out with a big bang. I took off from work to participate in the day's festivities. The last day of camp was spent at the Maryland State Fair. It was the first time I had attended the fair in nearly 30 years. We saw the cows; and the pigs; and the horses; and the sheep; and the lamas; and the goats; and a few other four legged friends. We also visited the indoor happenings of the 4H. That is, we veiwed the various items (i.e. canned foods, baked goods, crafts, quilts, ect.) that had been judged or was scheduled for judging. We had lunch. Then it was off to riding as many rides as one could before someone said it was time to go home or should I say to the next event. After the fair Kevin and I rushed across town to attend footbal practice--three hours worth. (Keep in mind, these are just the highlights.) Are you tired yet? I was so, I went home and went to sleep as fast as I could.
The next day took off just as fast as the day before. I got up early Saturday morning to get to the Maryland Renasiance Festivial by 10AM. This is a festivial Kevin and I attend annually. He usually invites 1-2 of his friends to come along on the journey. This year he invited his cousin Kendal and his friend Darien to come along. For one day the four of us travel back to the 1500s and spend the day with King Henry and his court. Here are a few pictures (I plan to add to my scrapbook). We had a ball. Not long after it was time to go. I had to get ready to go the the stadium--the Ravens vs. the Gaints.
Sunday was the Triple Crown so-to-speak. I was off again. This time I was headed to Angela's Happy Stamper in Reston, Virginia to attend Jennifer McGuire's, (from HEROS Art) A.M. and P.M. classes. It was a day full of inking and stamping. OMG, I have to thank Cindy for giving me the heads-up on Jennifer's classes. I had so much fun and I learned alot to. There was only one downside--just one. You know there's a downside to everything and this situation is no different. I wanted to purchase more products. I think we made 16 cards. Plus I won one of the raffle prizes. Not a bad day at all. I haven't taken pictures of any of the cards I made in class yesterday; however, I do have a few photos from the class. By the time I returned home, I was too pooped to do anything, but I have alot of ideas. As my ideas become a reality, I'll be sure to share them with you. Until then, please enjoy the remaining photos.
