Looking Through Old Photos

I decided that I needed to clean up some of the photos on my computer and I came across one of my favorite pictures.

This picture was taken when Nikki was a freshman at UC. She had a home rowing meet and a bunch of my family came to watch, including my mom. As you can see in the picture, it was a nasty, cold, windy, and rainy day and the race never took place but we sure had fun. While we were waiting for the weather to clear up and a decision to be made about the race, we all ventured over to the boat storage area to "get out of the elements." Now, imagine us all bundled up in coats, scarves, gloves, etc. and Mom using her walker to climb a substanial hill to reach the building. It was pretty funny and Nikki's teammates were impressed that Mom was still there. They started calling her "Hard Core Grandma." When you say it now, it sounds a bit pornographic, doesn't it, but we all laughed about it and had a good time. That was the only opportunity that Mom had to see Nikki race, and even though it never materialized, it sure makes for a wonderful memory!
On the sewing front, I have Homecoming sashes to finish up and I also want to work on my guild BOM, so I guess I should get busy - or maybe I'll just continue looking at pictures and sew tomorrow:)
