Leo’s Quilt in Progress (Oh new online album)

I have started another quilt for a little guy I know who is very very sweet. I decided to make two quilts, one for Leo which you can see the progress bellow, and the other for Lucas his brother. I chose very simple patterns so I wont get lost. This time I am making it all by myself(that’s why the simple pattern). So I hope it will work out! Leo passed by the other day to monitor my progress and be sure I am using the fabrics that he liked. Talking about pressure! We had sushi which he enjoyed but Lucas didn’t like it at all…too sea weedy…hahhaha Well have a look at the slide show bellow. Oh by the way if you would like to check out my new photo album just click the link or the title of this post. I am changing album websites because the other one is giving me grief! Ok hope you guys like it.

"Oh, of course," said Ron, clapping a hand to his forehead. "I forgot we’ll be hunting down Voldemort in a mobile library."

It has finally arrived!!! After waiting so long, its here and I feel a little sad that this will be the last Harry Potter book. At down town Frederick you would have thought it was Halloween. All the kids and even ADULTS were dressed up to go get a copy of the Harry’s last adventure. The public library made a real special event of the launch of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. They decorated the entire building and the staff was dressed as there favorite characters. Everyone was waiting outside anxiously for the staff to open the doors so they could get there goody bags and watch a Potter movie, while waiting till midnight to buy there fresh copies! They had the theme songs playing really loud outside the library and Rob and I could hear the music from our apartment and see all the kids dressed like Hogart’s students. I of course bought a copy but I waited for the next day. I had reserved a copy and Barn’s and Noble. I am reading the book at the moment but only small doses so I don’t read it all in one day haha! Well enjoy the pictures. You can click on the title of this post or see the slide show bellow.

Sneak Peak of the book:

“Death’s got an Invisibility Cloak?” Harry interrupted again.
“So he can sneak up on people,” said Ron. “Sometimes he gets bored running at them, flapping his arms and shrieking …” (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows)

Don Cove weekend!

When Jim and Ann told us they rented a place in Don Cove and invited us for the weekend, Rob and I were thrilled! What a beautiful peaceful place. If your looking for a busy weekend in bars and with people do not go there because this place is the opposite. Beautiful scenery and the only thing you can here is the birds. The house was over looking the bay. It had a big patio and its own dock area. We arrived and freshened up a little. We took the wine and some beers to the dock area. We stayed there the whole afternoon drinking and fishing…it was heaven. The next day we woke up early and headed to the main docks to rent a fishing boat. Ann and Jim took the boat back to the house and rob and I brought the car back. We made lunch and took off with the boat to have a ride around the bay and do some serious fishing! I caught 2 fishes and Rob also caught 2. It was great but very very hot. I forgot to bring my bikini so I had to take my shirt off and stay with my bra. The heat was almost unbearable. We went back to the house had nice cold showers and packed because Rob needed to work the next morning. We headed to the little restaurant at the docks and had a really nice dinner. We headed back home at 21:00 pm to beat the traffic but I guess everyone thought the same. We were back home at 12:00am. Life is hard over here….What a great weekend!

4th of July in Frederick

I always wanted to be in America to experience the 4th of July first hand. This year had the chance to be here is America for it. Frederick down town was all dressed up for the event. Little and huge American flags were dancing around the wind. The weather was nice and warm but it rained a couple of times. Leaving me, Utah, Lance and the kids drenched by the time we went home. They had a boat competition at the creek beside our building on the 3rd and on the 4th Baker Park was like a festival ground. I was a little disappointed by the lack of parades but overall it was nice experience. They had live bands at the park area and a lot of entertainment for the kids. Lucas and Leo had a blast. I missed the fireworks cause I was too tiered to leave the apartment to go have a look at it in the evening but we did hear them. It kept raining buckets through the night so I also didn’t want to get all drenched again! Have a look at the photo’s so you can see Frederick’s 4th of July experience.
