Company fun!

I got a call a few weeks back from my friend Sandy W. She said she had a few days off coming up, and was wondering, would we like some company?

Would we!

We had a splendid time (as usual)! One day we met Kyle for a picnic lunch.

It was 85 degrees! In April! Needless to say, we ate in the shade.

Sorry Sandy, our camera has blurry spots. :-}

Girls in green. We saw all sorts of flowers - violets, phlox, trillium (?) and lots of little white wild blossoms.

Sneak peek of summer.

Sandy is known for three things - fun food, fun games and fun crafts (I suppose we could just condense that to "fun"). What did she bring this time?

Quilling supplies!

Haley has made me some lovely quilled things before, but I had never done it myself. It was so easy and fun, and perfect for us non-artistic types.

We also decided to make Smore Sundaes. All we needed was the marshmallow sauce. So we decided to make our own.

What have we done???

Yes, we did use a recipe. No, we didn't have a double boiler.

It was a bit of an adventure to eat, but SO good. I'll be making it again - with marshmallow sauce from the store! Thanks so much for spending your days off with us Sandy! It was such a treat!

Looks and sounds like a wonderful time with your friend. Little Miss got a little sunburn, huh? You all look wonderful! Thanks for the pictures and stories. My friend quills and is going to teach us. We meet at Wesley Church once a month for scrapping or whatever craft you want. I can't wait to try quilling, the items are neat and almost have a
3D look to them! xo Sue

Looks like you ladies (and gentleman) had quite a fun time together! That marshmallow sauce looks interesting.
