View from the building we were in...
do you know what it is?
Many of the displays at the orchid show seemed past their prime. Ahh, but the Arboretum, now that was a whole different story. Take a look....
Mary Ellen stops to snap another picture on our way out.
From there we stopped at Jeanie's favorite used furniture store. Mary Ellen and Jeanie were each in need of a small item and they both found what they needed! The store had some very nice items and for great prices too. Next, we shopped at the big Goodwill store we went to last year. I found a very nice top for $3.99. Then it was back to Jeanie's house. Yes, we were almost there when Mary Ellen reminded Jeanie (again!) that she needed her car which was still at the mall! Back to the mall =)
Jeanie had a yummy dinner prepared for us. Her daughter-in-law and grandson joined us for dinner. Her son was in Pittsburgh for a wedding. Lori couldn't go with him because she had to attend one or more graduation ceremonies at Penn State. Lori is a professor and a department head, I think. I do know she is known as Dr. Lori =)
Sunday morning we were up early. We had our coffee on Jeanie's deck. The sun was bright and warm. It was delightful! After church we had dinner at Cracker Barrel. All too soon it was time to pack up and head back home.
We roped Jeanie's hubby into snapping pictures quite often during the week end.
Here he is with his wife's phone while Mary Ellen snaps a photo.
me, Mary Ellen and Jeanie.
I'm the youngest of the three and the only one with silver hair.
Does that mean I have the most wisdom?? hee,hee
It was a wonderful time. We wish it could have been longer and had involved all our sisters. Since neither was possible, we were grateful for the time we had together. Of course our time involved many belly laughs, deep conversations, some tears too. That's how it is when we are all in the same space.
We are blessed.
Love my sisters!!
