Happy Happy Birthday Michael.

Stone Manor in Middletown Maryland Setting for a Super Wedding

If you follow the blog for a time, you notice my friend,  the top commenter, Sue Reinfeld.

Her daughter was married in a beautiful ceremony Sunday afternoon at Stone Manor in  Middletown ,  Maryland.

Steve and I were  glad we could share in the happy celebration. We left for home (Pittsburgh) as the sun was setting.

Twirling Girls at the Bridal Shower

Granddaughters Anna and Maura and Cousin Parker- a junior bridesmaid and two flower girls for their Cousin Victoria’s wedding in June!

Anna found an empty room at the back of the hall and they were dancing and twirling in the available light from the window.

They had been so good watching all the gifts opened and had a moment of feeling free in their fancy dresses.

Casting a Giant Shadow

You could really say it glowed-

We spent a good part of the day together, Maura (3) and I. Her brothers and sister at a swim meet for hours.

Got jammied up for nigh time.Then came out into the setting sun with Murphy and danced around in the driveway.

The angle of the sun does amazing things as it prepares to slip away for the day.  Had just the iPhone with me.

Dancing in the Streets at the Italian Festival (2 images)

Saturday night, Steve and I’d eaten dinner and I was working on some photo project and he said, Do you want to go to the Italian Festival? So we did. The neighborhood of Bloomfield hosts Little Italy Days (the 9th year according to the banner behind the band) Wish I had the playlist to post.Let’s just say I knew them all.  “I Saw Her Standing There.” (’60’s music as well)  . The band played straight with not even a breath between numbers and they closed the evening with Donna Summer’s “Last Dance”.  Finesse Band website for more info. Turns out they have opened for Earth Wind and Fire and Chicago.  Anyway,  after a few numbers the young dancers made there way to the space up by the main stage but they started out behind the barricade down the street. Their energy and enthusiasm added a lot to the crowd’s enjoyment.

Enjoying the music from long before they were born!
