A Wonderful Weekend

I took a little bloggy break over the weekend and enjoyed time with family and friends. I hope you all had a great weekend too :) Though we didn't get to go visit my parents in Michigan like we had planned, we still had a great time here in Iowa. And what a busy weekend it was!
Friday we worked around the house in the morning then visited Jesse's mom at her new house and had dinner with her and his brother's family that night to celebrate his mom's birthday.
Saturday we headed to Des Moines for a car show and to spend time with Jesse's cousin and his wife. The highlight of the day was seeing a 1964 Rambler Wagon! I have a '63 that I inherited from my great grandma and I've never seen another wagon at any car show I've ever been to! Here is my car (old picture alert!):
Here is the one we saw at the show: And here is the color I wanted mine painted next :)(Hot pink, of course) Sunday started out rainy, but cleared off in time for us to go air boating. We have such a great time on the river! We brought golf balls, clubs, and a baseball bat and had fun making up games :) After the river we celebrated the 4th (early) with a bon fire and some fireworks at Jesse's aunt and uncle's house. Yesterday Jesse went boating again and I stayed home to relax. I had to work last night (Jesse had vacation-lucky duck!). I needed a day to recover from our busy weekend! I hope your weekend was as wonderful as ours :)


  1. That is great that your car is still running. Too bad things are built the way they used to where they lasted FOREVER:)

  2. I'm glad that you and Jesse had such a good weekend!! Jake and I did, too. :)

  3. Oh I remember that photo now! You would be a hit driving down the street in a hot pink Rambler! Glad you had a fun weekend too!

  4. I must be getting old Edi. Was in bed by 8 pm yesterday! LOL

    The color for the car is so you. Do you think you'd really do it? Have you had it in any shows?

    Sounds like a great weekend...you've got to squeeze so much in to so few months w/the weather y'all have there!

  5. I think your car is prettier than the one at the car show! {:-D
