Recently, my cousin has opened her home to a Sea Dogs player, Eric Niesen. When he is 'in-town' playing for the Sea Dogs, he stays at her house. When he pitched an inning last night, I made my way down to the field to get a picture for her. She was at home, making him chocolate chip cookies for a bedtime snack! What a lucky guy!!

The Lions Club has been selling raffle tickets for this 1970 Ford Maverick for a few years now. We purchased even more raffle tickets on Saturday. The drawing is on August 4th at the annual Uptown Cruisahs car show at the New Balance Factory Outlet. The kiddos are really, really hoping that one of them will win it!

Every year I ask the kiddos to pose in front of my favorite vehicle - the carraige used during the filming of 'Gone with the Wind'. I love looking back through the years and seeing how much they have changed. It's incredible!

Every year, this is one of our favorite events. There's always lots of amazing cars to look at, yummy food to eat, good music to listen to and crafts to browse from talented area crafters. This year there was also a much larger crowd - all their advertising paid off. The event raises funds for the Hamlin Library, a very worthy cause. We're glad to help!
We're here to see the cars and enjoy the view. The location is incredibly beautiful!
Posing in front of the only car that might be big enough for our family - the Iron Mountain House bus.

This is our 1972 Pontiac Ventura. My husband bought it shortly after we started seeing each other, and made the mistake of handing me the keys. He didn't think I would like it because it's a bit rough around the edges, but I've been driving it ever since. I love this car and we have a lot of fun with it! It's so cool to drive around and see people wave, give you the 'thumbs-up' sign, and/or stop to talk to you about what a great old car you're driving. It's nice that antique cars are still appreciated.

African Violets are my very favorite house plant. I was so pleased when my friend brought me a whole box of them today! She and her mother have been raising them, but have a surplus. They knew I would give them a happy home, and take good care of them, so they shared some with me. There are so many unique varieties here, some that I have never seen before. And they're all so pretty!

This evening we drove up to Bangor to see Bad Seed Rising, Halestorm, 3 Doors Down, and Daughtry perform. It was an amazing show and she loved it just as much as I did!
These guys put on a heck of a good show! After the first few changes, we started counting - that guitarist on the left played 9 different guitars throughout their performance. Yes. 9!

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end...
I do absolutely love driving Gypsy and don't I have the cutest co-pilot? This was his first time riding 'shotgun', so he was feeling pretty special. Many people have commented on how brave I am to drive such a big rig, but please don't give me too much credit - it's way easier than it looks! Although, this made me a little bit nervous...

Our younger son started archery last fall and loves it so much that he has been begging me to let the girls try a lesson. We finally were able to arrange it tonight. They loved it too! And can't wait to do it again!!
