Fingerless Gloves

I finished these today for my youngest granddaughter




Roasted marshmallows tonight. Yum!


Rainy day

Today was a rainy day. During a brief time the sun broke through and these two started dancing.
Always makes me smile.


Pitkin Day

Every year on the last Saturday of July we have Pitkin Day. It is a fun day filled with all kinds of activities. It sponsored by the Pitkin Historical Society as a fundraiser. The day starts off with a 2 or 5 mile walk/run. That is a lot harder then it sounds because of the altitude here.

Then there is the kids fishing contest. It is a lot of fun to watch all the kids trying to catch fish. There is a kids fishing pond at the end of town that the town stocks for the event. My granddaughters are usually here and join in the fun. This year the youngest granddaughter didn’t catch anything, but the older 2 did.



Then every year my husband plays in the horseshoe contest. He place 2nd this year.


There is seed spitting, hula hoop and plunger toss contest. (No pictures of this 😦

There is a potluck with meat provided and everyone bring a side dish to share. The line is always long!


After lunch there is a raffle. Always a lot of stuff donated. My eldest granddaughter was the only one to win. She won a pedicure.

After the raffle is time for the egg toss and ballon toss contest. There are different age groups and everyone had a great time!

There was face painting.


We were suppose to have a tug of war, but it started to pour rain. So we all got under the shelter and had ice cream for all.


Overall fun for everyone.

To top off the weekend there is a melodrama with people from town as the actors. They always do a great job. For the last 2 years Michaela has been the sign girl ( who tells you to boo the villain, sigh for the heroine, etc)


Hope you enjoyed seeing a glimpse of Pitkin Day.


Egg toss

Today was Pitkin Day. Will write more about this in awhile, but wanted to get my Project 365 photo out.

My husband and daughter playing egg toss.



Went for a four wheeler ride today. The clouds and sunshine were just beautiful!


Project 365

Project 365 is a project that is going around the web where you take a picture ever day of the year. I want to try this project. It is a great way to keep track of what is going on in my life. Also it is a great way to practice my photographic skills.

I’m sure I won’t be posting pictures every day, but I’ll try post once a week with that weeks pictures.

So here is today’s picture.


We found this vase at my brother-in-laws. My granddaughter Alexis picked some wild flowers for me to put in the vase.
