Images of Home

So as you may know from the last post (weeks ago ... NEED to get better with this blogging), Greg and I spent the 4th of July weekend at home on Kauai. Kauai will always be my home and there are moments when I would move back in a heartbeat. But boy was it hot! Like sweltering hot! I don't miss that! We had a nice time with some family over for an evening BBQ. Greg was just going crazy with the camera. Tons of interesting shots of my childhood home. Here's some cool shots ...

Hey, look ... here we are! In the middle of that big Pacific Ocean!

Yummy ... pineapple upside-down cake! Get ready to dig in!

Sister #2's rocking horse.

Aging wine?

Ready and waiting for the next sewing project (hint, hint Marlene ... get with it)!

Two of my creations ... the pillow from eons ago when I was just learning to cross stitch and the country goose that my mom scooped up. And don't forgot about traveling AC-the-dog, who accompanies Greg and I on all of our trips. He even made it to Paris and Rome when Greg and I got hitched!

Row of dried peonies from Sister #1's wedding.

Wood grain of an old table outside:

Rusting weights.

Drip, drip, drip ... I just love this shot. I think Greg had to lie on the ground to get this shot!

Aaahhh ... laundry memories! I remember hanging clothes on the line to dry. Ugh! I did not like that chore when I was younger. Living in the city, well, no clothes lines! Yay!

My handprint, forever stamped in concrete pavers designed and made by my Dad! I can't remember how old I was, but this was oh so many years ago.

A beautiful setting sun as we started our drive to the airport ... goodbye Kekaha ... we'll be back!
