Summer Review and Fall Plans

Pin It
Where did the time go?
Summer is over.
 The kids are back in school and we are gearing up for the Fall season.
 
Summer for us started with
Remnants of the Past.
It was the first week in June. 
(San Luis Obispo)
 
We went back down to the San Luis Obispo area just two weeks later for a graduation party
(Gypsy theme)
and were able to take an extra day on the weekend and go to the beach.
(Pismo)
 
 
Once more in July we headed down for a friend's wedding.  It was beautiful, right on the beach at the end of the pier.
(Cayucus)
 
The first part of August we made a quick trip back to Texas to attend our nephew's wedding
Curt &Laura
(Texas)
 
 
It was also good to see my sisters and their families.

(Texas)
 
Angela our first born turned 16 while we were in Texas.
(here she is in her Gypsy costume for the graduation party in S.L.O.)
Sweet 16 Ange!
 
I got to hang out for a bit with my friend
 Jillian from The Virginia House
(Her home and blog have been featured several times.)
(Texas)

 
 
During our stay, we out just about every day looking for treasures to bring back to our customers.  Also on our way home we stopped a few times at Antique stores and malls.
(If only we had brought the trailer!)
(Colorado)
 
 
Now that we are home and school has started, we are getting ready for two special shows.
(our space at the Spring show)
(Roseville)

Hello,
Love your blog and also your tent canopies. Can you tell us the manufacturer?

The canopies that we use are the Caravan brand. They work like the E-Z Up brand, but seem to be a bit stronger.
