After our grand tour of the Midwest, the South and Mid-Atlantic South we've returned home. I thought I'd share a few trip highlights with you today.
Our first stop was the Midwest where we visited family and got to see a lot of corn fields. The corn was pretty tall!
One day we went to Springfield, IL to visit the Abraham Lincoln Museum, Home and Tomb. Here is most of the family with a statue of President Lincoln with the visitor's center in the background.
We also went to visit the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, MO.
We went to the museum under the Arch and took the tram up into the Arch to the observation area. Here is the view of St. Louis from one of the windows:
From the Midwest, we moved onto the South. While there, I did some vintage shopping in a few places, including Atlanta, GA. I'll show you my latest treasures in tomorrow's post.
Our last stop on our vacation trip was Virigina to visit with Vicki and her husband, Chris. It was a great visit, as always, and the children had fun fishing, dyeing and quilting. You can see some pictures in Vicki's post, and see my son quilting under Vicki's supervision below.
We traveled over 4000 miles on the trip and while we had a good time, we're glad to be home! I've already got plenty of projects lined up for this month - I need to work on Garden Path, my daughter's birthday dress and school wardrobe and whatever else I feel like working on. Should be fun!
Parting Shot: Sunflower! While we were gone, it seems that New England had at least some decent weather. My son's sunflower has grown quite a bit to the point where it is now taller than he is.
