Afternoon with Aunt Frances

It was a beautiful day for a drive to Burlington where Aunt Frances and family were gathered by a lake to fellowship and catch up on family happenings. 

While we were resting from our trip home Soffie came visiting. She still has that sleek look but now you can feel meat on her bones and she is one happy dog.

Lots of children in the family.

The young folks were enjoying a game of bean bag toss.

Carol and Aunt Frances. If you remember the pictures I posted of our vacation at the beach there was a lovely painting on the wall of a bird and a piece of drift wood with little birds sitting on it. Carol is the artist that did both. She is so talented.
