A Busy Weekend

While this is an older picture this is exactly what we both are feeling
like doing right now.
***
It started with Friday a birthday party! They had a band and it was cater.
We had so much fun I think we danced almost every dance lots of laughter.
we haven't danced that much in years.:)
Sorry to busy dancing to take pictures.
****
Then a family reunion on Saturday. We drove to Maine Saturday, to the Beach house of
David's cousin. The weather was perfect, the cousins funny and sweet, the older
aunts and uncles so great. There was food everywhere, laughter, and lots of hugs and tears.
Sorry no pictures to busy.
***
We stayed overnight with our close friends. We went to sleep with the sounds of
the ocean and woke up to a beautiful ocean breeze and mimosas, yummm. We are so blessed
to have friends who are quick to invite us to stay in their lovely home by the sea.
no pictures to busy.

And then on the way home we see Bud and Bill.
 
 

They are a working team and they were plowing up...

Potatoes! there were a few guys behind them with baskets picking the potatoes.
It was a scene that touched my heart, my grandfather had a team of work horses
and one of these horses looked just like his beloved horse Prince.
If any of you know what tramping hay is, I did that as a kid, with my grandfather.
 I can remember laying in a hay rack full of hay, looking at the late summer sky, with my grandfather telling old
Prince to take us home. Home a great place to be with our memories old and new.

What a fun weekend! I would be too busy to take pics too..although I would love to see Maine and the ocean! The work horses remind me of the Amish we see everyday here. It's amazing how hard they work and how well they survive without the modern machinery...and the expense...that goes into farming these days. Now go back to napping!

I remember my grandfather working his field with horse and plow. That was an endearing and comforting vision you showed which I can relate to from my past. Hope you had a great time with family.
