It was a very hot and sunny Memorial Day. The Parade paid excellent tribute to our local fallen soldiers. The Parade offered us Fire Trucks, String Bands, Military Personal from many different wars and a clown.
It also kicked off the Summer of Elton and Friends.
The boys are ready to bring the music to the the mix. Happy Summer Adventures hopefully coming your way!
It was a very busy weekend. I hope all the Mom’s out there enjoyed their day! Brava!
The Roomie had a funeral on Saturday and needed 30 minutes to decompress before her next activity on this very active weekend. I love that she loves the Morris Arboretum. The sun came out for a few hours so this was the best time to visit. The brook was babbling, the early spring flowers were flowering and the fish were swimming. Who else would we spend this time with but Mother Nature 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day Mother.
We spent some time with Cady at her house. It was fun. She has all kinds of stuff to use as backgrounds for pictures…
I got to hang from a Fork all McGuyver Style!
They have this killer lamp. The Roomie loves things like this lantern. I think it reminds her of The Guiding Light 🙂
I have Antlers…HA HA HA!
She also has this really comfy chair. It’s a little far from the TV but wicked comfy 🙂
We went to Mom’s for dinner and it was delicious. Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
The evening ended on a very sad note. Our beloved 76ers lost in the playoffs. It’s been a great season and we look forward to what next season brings.
This weekend we all went to the Mercer Museum and Henry Chapman Mercer’s home Fontill Castle.
So much history in two amazing locations.
The Museum itself houses thousands of items that represent the trades of the by-gone era. The Tanner’s tools, Coaches/Toll Roads and they even have a Gallows on the top floor in the Crime and Punishment exhibit.
Fonthill Castle was the home built and designed by Henry Mercer for himself. It showcases his tile and stone collections from round the world. There are many oddities and tiles that depict stories like those of Charles Dickens and the travels of Columbus.
His home at the time was a Castle but with Modern conveniences like central heating, bell systems and electricity.
