I Had a Birthday

Duna, duna, duna they say it's your birthday, It's my birthday too yeah. It was mine and Cindy my twin sister's birthday on July 1, 2009. My mom and Barry also went with us to Epcot. Unfortunately John Cindy's husband could not go. He was missed. We will get to celebrate with him next year on our Birthday. They moved to Minnesota two months ago, so it will be difficult for us to get together more often.
We had beverages around the world at Epcot. We also went on a mission for Kim Possible and captured the evil villains.

Behind us was a tribute band for Bon Jovi. They were pretty good. they played all the favorites, so they played them all. I think every Bon Jovi song is a favorite.
Knowing me, I just did something to make Barry say why me? and then I just had to hug him. He got us reservations at the restaurant in Canada. One of the reasons why we chose Canada is that our birthday is on Canada Day. Oh Canada!!!!!

Ahhhhhhh look out a big golf ball is headed our way. Oh wait, It is Spaceship Earth. Yikes I was worried. I had so much fun on our birthday. Thank you Mom, Dad , Barry and Cindy for spending time with me on that day.

A couple of weeks ago we went to St. Augustine. At the visitor center they had a weaving loom. I had to have restraint because I wanted to sit down and start weaving. They had some yarn that was made of linen there.
The weaving was very beautiful. I wish I could meet the artist. I have some info on the guild there. I am going to try to get in touch with them and find out about how to get in touch with other guilds. I would love to learn some techniques from a real live person. So far I have learned everything from books or video.

This place looks cool. It is near Flaggler College. We took a tram tour of the city. It was very entertaining and we saw the city without having to walk around it.

This is St. Augustine Beach. It was very pretty, but not a lot of shells. In all the years that I have been married I haven't ever been to the beach as much as I have this summer. I am so glad that we've had the opportunity to do this.
Awe I just love this man.
Next is Tarpon Springs. We went here this past weekend. We went on a boat tour to see how they got the sponges out of Tarpon Springs
This diver went out in the water every hour to dive for sponges. His suite is very heavy. The hook he is holding is what he uses to pick up the sponges with.

Everyone has to have one of these pictures. Trick photography, I think not. Ha Ha. Despite the many days I've been working this summer, I have enjoyed the times I am getting out and going places with my family. I promise I have been working on knitting projects, weaving etc. I will make that my next post.
