Pumpkins at the Mining Museum

Who'd 'a' thought the Western Museum of Mining and Industry (just down the street from us) would have a pumpkin patch?! And a pretty fun one at that! All the photos are here.

Our newest Quilter: Matteo

Matteo joined the ranks of the Compound Quilters over the last couple days! He wanted to make a quilt for someone (shhhhhh, it's a surprise), so he got Lynn to teach him some new skills... Railroad theme, of course.

Update: Nana, "Matteo's teacher just had a baby and Matteo wanted to make a quilt for her. He went through my stash, picked a train theme, picked a pattern, and made his first quilt! He was a great student, he worked carefully, followed instructions, and never gave up! My fantastic quilting friend quilted it with a train pattern!"

Here and There

A plethora of moments recently...

Go Dog Go

This is where Tracy parked after deciding not to park in the
handicap spot without Jonny.

Nana, "Oh, was I watching Lexi?"

Snow on the lounge chairs at the pool.

David and AJ go at it using the Revolutionary War chess set, which we
generally refer to as the Hamilton chess set. AJ's beaten Papa a few times now.

1980s Way Back Day

It was way back dress-up day at DCC. 1980s doesn't seem all that far back to me, but what-ev. Tracy says, "Thank you Target clearance section for our neon color attire." Oh, and did we mention Jonny just got glasses... Harder to tell apart, huh?! (Jonny's on the right in both photos.)
