Ice Cream and Pirate Jack

Took another break from making the identical photo albums. Yes...still complaining about the boredom! Note to year don't take so many stinkin' photos!

Here is a sample of a couple of the pictures that will be in the albums. Please note that Bobbins our 'traveling gnome' appears in many of the photos.

 Ice Cream Capital of the World - LeMars, IA

 Early evening at Pirate Jack's, Arnold's Park, IA (Can you say INTERVENTION?)

 Bobbins does the stairs at Fillenwarth Beach, Arnold's Park, IA.

 Fall foliage - just outside our deck - West Oaks, Arnold's Park, IA.

 Evening on West Okoboji Lake (evening view from Pirate Jack's).

A completed quilt - the primary reason for the sissy get together! Don't Miss Bobbins!

And now for the card....
