I did something quite unusual for me-I went somewhere! My sister-Jodie, niece-Jess, Jess's friend, my friend-Jessie and I, went to Erie, PA (about two and a half hours from home) last week and stayed two nights. Below are a few pictures from our little trip.

|We went to the beach for a little while.|
|A heron in Presque Isle State Park. (Presque Isle is French and is translated to 'almost island' in English. It was named that because, well-it's almost an island. I learned that from the boat tour too!)|
|Jess and Darian are somewhere on there-at Waldameer Park.|
|Beach blanket in action-I made this one for Jodie.|
|This is Jessie's beach blanket that she made herself. I love the prints in this one.|
|Here's the gang-Jess, Jodie, Me, Jessie, and Darian.|
What we did, so I can remember: Monday-the beach, boat tour, and dinner at a hibachi grill-that was cool! Tuesday-Waldameer Park, dinner at Cracker Barrel, dessert at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, swimming in hotel pool. Wednesday-we rode a surrey (think a four seat/four wheel pedal bike), ate at Chick-fil-A, then home. It was a lot of fun, but good to get home too!
