A fun BBQ!

Good afternoon everyone,

It has been raining off and on since Saturday. So far, we have had 2 3/4 inches of rain. It is wet here. We had a very good time at Carolyn and Bob's BBQ. They did a fabulous job on their new deck. I will share some pictures of it tomorrow. Today, it is the grandbabies. LOL But first....Bob really liked his GPS case and it just fit. I got the stains off of my iron. I made a paste out of baking soda and vinegar. I used a scrubby and put it on the cold iron. It took some work, but I got most of the ickiness off of it. The iron glides over the fabric like new, now. (grin)

Like I said, we had a good time. Cathryn and Jeremy were the only ones in our family that could make it, but most of Bob's family were able to come. I think we had about 30 people. Cathryn and Jeremy went by and picked up Izabella and Noah, since Hazel had to work. Wasn't that sweet of them? So we got to see all 4 of our grandbabies. (Big grin!)

This is Carolyn and Bob with their furbaby, Emma between them.
This is Jeremy.
Cathryn holding Izabella. Ashton lost his first top tooth on the first day of first grade. He is quite proud of it. LOL Noah had such a good time playing with his cousins. Ava was hard to get a picture of for some reason. Most of my pictures are of the top of her head. LOL Here she is hamming it up.
Izzie spent most of her time sitting on Aunt Cath's lap. She wasn't very happy to be away from her mama and daddy. Ashton and Noah playing in the sandbox before the rain began. The kids had lots of fun in the sandbox.
Noah and Ava. She is posing for me again. I think she is going to be a model. LOL

We had a wonderful time. I will share more pictures tomorrow. All of this rain has made it possible for me to get lots of quilting done. I am working on the binding of the Harbor Town quilt. I have also been quilting on the Disappearing Nine-Patch. I am making a block a day of the Flower Garden Quilt. Today I am on block #6. Then I have 6 more. The Double Delight is still sitting there waiting on me. I still plan to get it done, but I kind of have to force myself to do it. LOL
Well, I need to get my chores done before the rain comes back. Thank you for visiting. I hope you all have a good evening.

Love the pictures of the Grands, Winona! They are all so precious!
We are still getting rain, too... but not the good soaking kind- we've been having the afternoon thunderstorms and DOWNPOURS!
Glad you were able to get your iron clean- I ran mine across some fusible webbing and boy, did it make a sticky mess! I thought I would never get that stuff off!
