Elton Does the Memorial Day Parade

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!

Claire and Miranda Go To The Garden Festival

It was a really hot day on The Hill but a really fun day as well.

We got some kettle corn and…

watched the May Pole Dancers.  They have a wonderful routine that was so much fun.  The Roomie made us leave when one of them dressed like a clown came out.  Spiders and Clowns are her weakness, lol.

The Roomie was having issues with the heat and her RA so she had to go sit in the car with the AC on for a while.  We were looking at all the beautiful houses on the street.

We had to go water some plants and took some time to enjoy the sunset in the back field.  BEAUTIFUL with a little taste of early Summer.

Miranda’s Weekend Adventure

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.

OMG…The Sun Came Out!

The Roomie and I made a quick visit to the park today.  It was rather shocking to see the sun, lol.

Miranda was all smiles too.  Just to see the sun after so many cloudy and rainy days is just amazing!  We were all feeling great on this Monday!

This was Edgar yesterday.  He said he didn’t care if it was rainy.  He’s a Tomte who used to live outside so, like no big whoop, lol.

Gnomes/Elves and Tomte’s are not sideline often by inclement conditions.  The Roomie…well she usually is on the Sofa watching Netflix 🙂

Harrisburg, PA or Bust

First stop The State Museum of Pennsylvania.  It was amazing.  So much to see.  The exhibits are wonderful.  They have just renovated the Mammal Exhibit and it’s a must see.

From the Feet of William Penn to the Airplanes and PA Turnpike exhibit it was a fun and wild ride!

We went next door to the State Capitol.  The view was amazing.  I could see straight down to the Susquehanna River.  Very Cool!

Harrisburg was great and we all hope to do it again soon 🙂

A Visit To Legoland

We took the child to Legoland this weekend.  No not The Roomie, although I understand the confusion.  The actual child, lol.

This place was super cool.  The structures were large enough that I could live in one of them, lol.

I fell in the Lego pit by accident.  Tom Ato jumped in like it was a ball pit.  That gent is a little soft in the head.

We all had a lot of fun. Including The Roomie and the child 😉

The Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle

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.

A really neat please to explore.
