The Queen and Her Court

Summer is winding down and so is my time with the sweetest children in the universe.
We are making the most of our last days together:
Cleaning the family grave site at Cave Hill Cemetery.  Our tombstone is just three sites down from Colonel Sanders' grave.  
There are folks who make a pilgrimage to his grave (now there is a fun story to investigate) and so the proprietors have painted a discrete yellow strip on the lanes to direct people to his plot.  
I have sworn the kids to promising that upon the event of my untimely demise they will promptly go to Benjamin Moore and purchase a pint of yellow paint and extend the line to my and Papa Joe's graves.
Visiting Yew Dell Gardens.

Making these little miniature pies in jam jars.

Last night we hosted a "Minute To Win It" party at the grand kid's house.
We competed in  contests we had found on the Internet.
The winners were allowed to decide if they wanted to be "Pie-d" with a pie pan filled with whipped cream.  Everyone opted to be smothered with real whipped cream.

Sooooooooooooooo fun.
