Quilts...

This summer we were able to make an extra trip out to Western Nebraska to attend Scott's 20th high school reunion (!) during Gering's Oregon Trail Days, and of course visit with family. I did a horrible job photojournaling this trip, though my camera did go along with us on our trip into town to check out the annual OT Quilt Show.

 We looked...


And voted for our favorites...


The girls helped color a quilt...



There were modern designs and fabrics...


As well as my favorites, the old classics...



When we got back to the house, Grandma and Brea napped because quilt browsing (and 100 degree heat) can take a lot of a girl.


We had a very nice trip. It was short. Our days were busy. There just isn't ever enough time to visit with everyone we would like to see during these trips, but we did get a chance to check in on my Great Grandma for a little bit each day while were there. She is doing as well as can be expected after a few rough days that ended with the placement of a pacemaker in her chest and a big old screw in her hip. Recovery is going to be a slow, long road and we just don't know how her 98 year old body will handle the challenge. Chatting with her last week it was still, at times, easy to forget her advanced age. She is amazing and we are truly blessed to have shared so much of our time here on Earth with her spirit. I think of her daily...and smile.

 peace
