Sadie, my Mom, and I had a wonderful good time in Stuart, Florida last week while visiting my Aunt Charmaine and Uncle Jim. They really know how to make people feel welcomed.
Aunt Charmaine is an amazingly talented and creative person. She quilts, paints, cooks, and decorates. She doesn’t just casually do these things, though. This woman wins awards and creates masterpieces! Also, her smile and jovial personality always light up the room. She is so fun to be around!
These are some of her paintings hanging around her house:
Uncle Jim is my Mom’s oldest sibling and only brother. He may be the smartest person I know. I think he got a perfect SAT score! He went to MIT and earned a degree in chemical engineering and then went to Medical School at the University of Miami. He has my most favorite sense of humor: quick witted and intelligent. Also, he has a really warm, kind personality that always makes me feel at ease.
Now, on to our trip….
These first pictures were taken at a Children’s museum.
(They had an entire mini-grocery store. Sadie loved, loved, loved it! She would have stayed there the entire day if we had let her.)
(Sadie can be seen above tentatively accepting a pretend cookie from the pretend bakery counter from Aunt Charmaine.)
(Aunt Charmaine and my Mom got all dressed up and went for brunch at the Tea Room. They had a delightful time!)
