Quaker Days 2013 Plainfield Indiana

Friday night I got to see my Mom for the first time in three weeks….I am lucky, because she came home and I get to see her.

We took Tanner and Emersyn to Logan’s Steak house and had a nice dinner, then I brought them to my house for a spend-the-night.

In a quick turn around, we got up and were back in Plainfield by 9:30 Saturday morning so Tanner would not miss the Quaker Day Parade. Gregg thought it would be a good idea to see if we might want to bring The Amber Light home fragrance and decor to the Quaker days next year. I think we are going to try it once, next year. If it goes well, we will be back.

We had a grat time at the parade, picking up Road Candy and seeing the floats and groups that got together to make it a fun event. We had lunch at the Friends Church. I think next year they should go with chicken with noodles and chili. Something different for a change. Saw a few people we knew, saw some of my old stomping grounds and enjoyed being with my sister and her beautiful family. Missed my Mom, John and Laurie. Got to see Max when I had to make a mad dash to the old homestead for a bathroom break, near the end of the parade.

Gregg and Tanner are convinced I have no idea of distance, as I said where we parked was a couple of blocks away from the church. I guess it was more like ten. It did not seem that far when I used to walk it everyday from my house (next to the Middle School) to Dairyland, I’m just sayin’. They acted like it was a far walk….they need to walk more I guess. LOL!

Emersyn wormed her way into having me go through the funhouse with her…which was fun!!! We had such a great day, a wonderful memory!

 

It was a great day.  Here are some of the best pictures from the day.
