Where the swimming pool was when I was a child is the “brown building” that is now a machine shop. My dad enlisted the help of my brother and his children to create two barn quilts that hang in Waynesboro, PA.
Some of the highlights of our East Coast visit include the Waynesboro Firecracker 5K where seven of us ran (one unicycled).
It was so, so fun to see the cousins coming into the finish line together. Lydia on the right decided to run the race the night before.
Since we were only a few miles from Gettysburg, Kevin and I headed over and watched a battle during the 150 year celebration. It was HOT!
Kevin and I wore our “Civil War” tee shirts and enlisted Confederate and Union guys to stand by us for a fun photo.
My father pushed while I hefted myself up on this
hay wheat bale so Kevin could get a silhouette shot.
The Kutztown Festival had a LOT of quilts. One (not shown) went for $11,000 at the auction. It was stunning.
I finished binding this quilt that my mom started in 2002.
Our dad grew a beard to surprise all of us kids. Probably the best moment on the entire trip was finding out that he is immensely ticklish.
Our family has a huge 4th of July party with the town fireworks following. Here is the very top of the slip and slide with our children.
Our brother-in-law did a nice trumpet solo.
My dad has a climbing guide book of White Rocks. Here he is hiking up to the rocks.
