Birthday Season 2013
|In Huntington U's Science Building|
Jon, Peter, Paul, Amanda, Kristen, Andrew, Ben, Kara with Jenny, Collin with Annie.
(Faith was with Laurel who was napping.)
Between August 11 and Sept. 8, we have six family birthdays. (Laurel - 8/11, Tim - 8/27, Jonathan - 9/1, Kara - 9/2, and Ben and Annie on 9/8.) This year we celebrated in Huntington, where Collin has just taken up his new duties teaching biology! It was wonderful to finally see K and C's beautiful 1868 home and tour their lovely new locale. But of course, best of all was spending the day with the whole crew!

Tutorials abound for play tents. I more or less used this one,
though I changed things up to make it work with what I had on hand. A hula hoop provides the frame, and it rests in a casing between the top and side panels. I'm stashing more pretty, silky fabrics in case I decide our grandchildren area in the basement needs a play tent, too.
