Cleveland

This is our last weekend in Cleveland.  Its a little sad since we have met such wonderful friends here…but also very exciting to be closer to our family in the West.  Today we went to visit my favorite spots in Amish Country that I will miss so much.  Lucky for me there was a swap meet going on…..I was in heaven.

A last visit to my favorite quilt shop was in order…

So was a stop to visit these donkeys….I love miniature donkeys.  If they didn’t poop I would have me a whole herd.

Even my boys love donkeys. See?

We had a great day visiting one of our favorite spots.  I was so good…I only bought these two jars ($6 for both!) and a yard of Amy Butler for $5.

We are moving (driving 28 hours!)  to Idaho on Tuesday.  I have posts scheduled, but I’ll be away from my computer, so any emails will have to wait till next weekend. 

Get ready Idaho….here we come!

Love the fabric! We had some donkeys for a while but now we just have horses but the donkeys are great at keeping the coyotes away. Your move sounds like when we moved from Georgia to Wyoming. I really wish we had stayed there lol. I love it out there.

Have a great trip! We moved last year from SC to WA state, we took two weeks to drive it and we had a great time! Moving is such an adventure! Good luck!

Your boys are just adorable and the baby has got so big! I guess b/c we don't see him every post, it seems like he should still be teeny, tiny! Have a great journey and enjoy!!

Aimee said...

Oh, and I meant to say, I have a full-size donkey and while they are fun to have and so loving/lovable, they do poop!!! A LOT!!! ;o)
