Birthdays and shows, but no sewing

I'm finally posting again, after what, 2 weeks?

Jack, Lynn and I went to Cincinnati 2 weeks ago and visited Nikki, Zach and Quinn. We had a great time and the weather was fabulous.

On Saturday we all went to the Cirque Dreams, Jungle Fantasy and it was great! I can't imagine how anyone can be that flexible or talented. If you ever get a chance to see them, you really must go. There were contortionists, trapeze artists, acrobats, jump ropers, etc. I would be hard-pressed to tell you my favorite part of the show.

Check out their website:

Quinn really enjoyed it. We were all surprised that she was so engrossed in the show that she didn't fuss at all and was dancing to the music. She fell asleep during the last 5 minutes or so, but I think that is amazing considering she hadn't taken a nap.

Saturday was Zach's birthday and Nikki bought him a grill. We got him some utensils and a grilling cookbook and some seasonings. Since we had gone to the 2PM show, Zach grilled dinner for us all and it was really good. We didn't celebrate Quinn's birthday yet, even though it was on the 9th. Nikki and Zach want to have a picnic/party at the park so no one has to try to have a ton of people at their house. It is also perfect for the kids because of the playground equipment, tennis courts, etc. Even though it will be almost a month after her birthday, the party is May 2nd. We figured that Quinn wouldn't care. Afterall, she's only 1!

Jack and I went to the Indians home opener last Friday afternoon. Lynn was there with some friends, but we weren't sitting close. It was cold and rainy and there was a rain delay. We all left after about an hour and half delay. Jack and I stopped to get something to eat and when we got in the car around 9:15, they had resumed play. I couldn't believe it. The rain delay was almost 4 hours long! I'm a big baseball fan and so far it looks like it is going to be a challenge to really enjoy watching Cleveland this year. I know, it's early!

I haven't had much time to sew. I've been busy at work and I was sick over Easter weekend. YUCK! It is driving me crazy to not be sewing. I've been trying to sneak in a few minutes here and there, but even that hasn't happened much the last coouple of weeks. I'm hoping for this weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to post some pictures then also.

My friend Rachel digitized some letters for me and I have to see if I can save it to a USB stick and transfer it to my machine. I think I'll try that tomorrow morning before I get busy with the thirty other things on my list. Thanks Rachel! That was fast.
