July Highlights

I've mentioned my dream of photographing quilts with classic cars. My cousin, Cathy, has a good friend who restores vehicles. He also flies remote-controlled airplanes. Cathy wanted us to meet each other, so on a hot July morning, we went to where he and his friends were flying their planes.
I think a Christmas quilt draped over this beauty would be perfect.
The grandkids stayed with us for a few days while Aaron and Christa were in Chicago.

We thought a trip to the Sugar Pine Railroad would be a great way to spend an afternoon. We sat on the outdoor seats, fashioned from old logs. It was pretty hot in the sun.

Letting off some steam.

What a fun way to spend the afternoon.

Other pastimes included making a fort out of quilts...

Perler bead projects...

and using these cards that fit on your nose to make funny faces (Ella wanted no part of this).
My parents celebrated their 70th anniversary on July 9. Seventy years--what a milestone!
Our church has an art display in the foyer of the sanctuary which changes every four to six weeks. Mark was the artist who had his work on display in July. Most people who know him know that he sold kitchen cabinets and designed kitchens for 30 years, and that he referees three sports--football, basketball and girls softball. But there is also a very artistic side to him, and it was nice to have it recognized.

Jessie Harper flew in and out of Fresno briefly in the middle of July, and we were able to spend a couple of precious hours with her, George and Cheri.
I'll leave you with these mid-month thoughts.

That red car is so cool. You definitely need to take a quilt photo with that one.
