The Tour of Barns

Dad's timber frame class tour of barns was much different this year than it has been in the past.    Auntie Lynn handled everything so there was no going out into the workshop to help my mom clean up.   Mom and Auntie Lynn cleaned up everything.  Yes, I did get a smidge of lemon cake and it was very yummy!

Mom found these on our back porch when she was taking me out to do peepee's~
We have no idea who gave us these gorgeous tulips but they sure did make mom smile and added lots of cheer to our house☺
 Look how pretty it is inside the tulip~
And look what Auntie Bev gave mom~
The box says "Save brown sugar, marshmallows and dried fruit by soaking this ceramic disk in water for 15 minutes.   Pat dry and place in appropriate sealed container with food goods.
To resoften brown sugar, dry the ceramic disk for 12 hours. Resoak, pat dry and reuse."

Mom has never seen these before.  Auntie Bev gives the bestest and most useful gifts!  

 They look good enough to eat!
Love ya lots♥
