Holy Cow!! (long catch up pictorial)

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted. Amazing how time flies when life is busy. These first two pictures are of our attempt at getting and making our very own maple syrup. We learned a lot and will do better next year!

Apparently I uploaded the wrong picture! We got not even a full quart jar of syrup after boiling down 5 gallons of sap. It sure is yummy though!

Miss Olivia trying to crawl!

A very cool "race" at the oval track. There were tons of vintage race cars. I'll take one of each please! ;)

The ring bearer pillow I made for our daughter's wedding.

The gift baggies we made together.

The "outdoorsy" table decorations. :)

The beautiful bride! Thank you to my special friend Kathy for the wonderful jewelry!

Here comes the bride!

And life doesn't seem to be getting any slower!

Hope you are all doing well and enjoying your summer!
