A few pictures to come of a lovely 10 days in Pennsylvania! Before I do that though, I must give all the credit for my new header to my sister, Ervina. Honestly, I have no idea whatsoever how to make a header like that and she said I’d need Fireworks or some other program that I don’t have to learn how. So, all the praise goes to her.
I took so many pictures while I was there that it’s hard for me to decide what to post and what not to… So, bear with me as I show you my wonderful Barkman family and some of the people I was with!
LIZ AND DAN CRANDALL’S WEDDING
Liz is a childhood friend of mine and we were delighted to be at her wedding! I played the piano during the ceremony, and then had a lovely time with the Glicks afterward!
During the ceremony
Mr. & Mrs.!
This was her wedding aisle… so pretty!
This was so cool – read the sign on the barn door!
The lovely Leatherman family!
I loved this – chocolate milk for all!
Our trip to PA was going to be just a short weekend, but my family called me a few days before we traveled up to let me know they were buying me a plane ticket to stay longer! I was amazed, humbled, and very grateful!! It was one of the best weeks ever!
TRIP TO THE CITY – BINNS PARK, RACHEL’S CREPERIE, CENTRAL MARKET
I must say something about this… When we lived in the city we were only a couple blocks away from this very cool park, and would take all our guests that would ever visit to see this very cool fountain. In my early days of marriage I dreamt about the darling children we’d have one day and how we’d take them to the park and let them splash in the water. When we moved 12 hours away that dream was banished, at least for the time being. So after a lovely breakfast at Rachel’s, we walked downtown to the Market and stopped in at this lovely fountain. And my dreams came true about my little child playing in Binn’s Park!
love these little teefers
PRINCE ST. CAFE’ WITH BETH
DAVID AND ZOE’
PAPA AND ZOE’
TO PROVE WE WERE IN AMISH COUNTRY AND WENT “TOURISTING”
MOTHER/DAUGHTER TIME AT THE MACARONI GRILL
So that’s a brief summary of my time up north… Crisp autumn days, family times, Zoe’ adoring her Papa and Nana and aunties and uncles, seeing some of my old friends and wanting to see others, visits with sister-in-laws and cousins… It was a lovely time, and I am so indebted to my family for providing a way for me to be there! Thank you, thank you!
And now baby is ready for lunch, so – tootles and happy weekend!
