If You Can Hum It, You Can Strum It and Get Along Little Cowboy/Cowgirl

This weekend has been filled with dinner invitations and other forms of entertainment provided by our Central church family.  Thursday night we were the guinea pigs of Julia Wright and enjoyed the wonderful dishes she whipped up.  Davis and Bailey entertained and were entertained by the Wright's grandson Kai.  Friday night we drove over the river and through the woods to Tim and Jimi Johnson's log cabin where we joined them and the Greenleaf duo for a night of Irish music.  Davis and Scott picked up the Courting Dulcimer fairly easily and we got to borrow a dulcimer for more practice at home.  This afternoon Tim and Paula Lewis treated us to horse riding courtesy of Scout the blue eyed American Saddlebred.  I think the barn cats made quite an impression too.  Scott and Bailey got into a little canter with their horses.  I'm not sure who was most surprised by that event.  This evening the Wisehart's fed us some great French dips and pasta salad.  Loren's grandmother is a prolific quilter so Carrie treated me to a trunk show of her creations.  The showstopper:  embroidered blocks of all 50 states including the year they joined the union, state flower and state bird surrounding an embroidered map of the continental U.S. delineating the state capitols.  Whew, I'm tired just writing about it.
