Long Weekend Wrap-Up!

We are back from yet another weekend getaway! More fun in the sun and relaxing--probably the last of the season now that school is underway. We had a great time! I think my favorite part was an "outsider art" show that we went to. They had the most amazing stuff and we bought a couple of cool things.

Here is weird voodoo type doll that I love and a kooky art piece:

The thing on the wall is an old Wheel of Fortune from a carnival--we bought it and are putting it in the kitchen.

The kids were posing for that pic, but this is an unposed one LOL:

Here are a few of Pickle. This was taken at a vineyard where we had lunch and went on a fun wine making tour.

Here she is at the restaurant of the winery--she LOVES butter!

At the pool in her cute swimsuit:

She made a little bed on the floor for herself and her dolls:

Here's a random pic of some napkins! We went to a little cafe and I liked the way they had mismatched napkins rolled up on the table--I might use this idea at home!

And, finally, we headed down to the beach again at sunset and I tried to get the group pose with sun setting--but they didn't turn out as well as they did last time. The sunset was much prettier this time, but I didn't really get a decent shot of the kids. Here are the best ones:

I like this one of the boys. The sunset is perfect! Maybe I can Photoshop Pickle in!?

And I love this one of Pickle with silhouettes of the boys in the background:

Here are a couple more cool silhouette ones:

Gooser in silhouette!

And Gooser with sunset:

And, once again we had a brilliant quote, this time by Teddy, that I have added to my Facebook quotes: "That's not dog doo--it has a tail."

That voodoo doll freaks me out!
I just love Pickle's smile, and I thought all of those sunset pictures were great.

I love the art work...really cool! I wish I had been with you...I spent the weekend eating myself out of house and home and watching movies!! So sad...but oddly fullfilling.
