Note: This day was also my one year retirement anniversary – and our granddaughter, Julia’s, 1st birthday – so I was pumped! Jeff and I continue to “immensely” enjoy every minute of retirement and time spent with as many of our 5 grandkids that we can. They are: Ariana (12 years), Joseph (11 years), Daniel (9 years), Jacob (7 years) and Julia (1 year).
If you are in need of an over dose of crafts, you need not go further than this event where there are more than 1,300 booths covering three miles of frontage (850 arts/crafts booths, 350 unique brand items and 100 food/produce (cranberry, of course) booths). Just thinking about it, makes our feet hurt. A 1.45 hour drive from our home to Warrens and then walking for about 7+ hours, we were spent! We were well into being up for 16 hours when we crashed early to hit the sack to catch some well needed Zzzzzzzzz’s.
