Car Show and Visit From Niece Whitney

Good Afternoon Dad, Mom and Blogging Friends. Come along with me to the car show, but first a little history:
For those of you who don't know, this is Josh with my husband Stacey and our son Harrison. Josh completely restored this 1950 Chevy pick-up by himself.
He did a beautiful job. Would you like to see the before photos?
Here she was before. Here's Dad helping steer while it was being loaded.
She was pretty rough.

Here she is all shiny and restored and ready for the car show.
One week before the car show my husband Stacey and his friend Ron shined up their classic autos. Ron made his Cobra from a kit. Both are excited about the car show Here she is all shined up and ready to go... the morning of. There goes Stacey out the drive-way. The kids and I will follow with the blanket, picnic basket, chairs and bikes.
Jessica insisted on straightening my hair while I polished my nails. She did a great job. It took a half hour.
We are loaded and ready to join Stacey, Ron and his fiance Janet.




Stacey and the kids. having a great time walking around. Harrison and his friends took the bikes and road around town for while, so I didn't get pictures of them.
Love this cutie.
When I'm a grandma I want one.
This is Janet's favorite.
It was 90 degrees, so these were a must.
I'm so glad Janet and I are friends. We have such fun together.



This is a beauty!

And the winner of the pick-ups, yes, it's my sweet hubby!!! We were so excited!! Stacey and Harrison stayed for the evening cruise up and down the street. They had a blast. We will do it next year. This time my niece Whitney was at our house waiting for us.
Whitney spent the night with us and went to church with us in the morning.
After church we had a picnic.
We had a wonderful weekend, and I hope you did too. Love, Kathi

I have to show this to Larry! He'll be so jealous. I can't believe that that truck started out so rough and turned out so fine!! The guys did a great job on it. Larry's ultimate dream is to own another Datsun 280Z. He wanted so much to restore the one we had but didn't know enough about it to get it done. Maybe some day when the kids are grown and gone we can get into that. We have a car show the weekend of July 4th and it's always so much fun to go to!

That is so amazing how a old car, basically junk transforms into such a piece of art. I know it is a lot of work and they did a beautiful job! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! You mentioned about my delphinium blooming earlier. I know my things bloom and produce earlier than my sister's garden. She lives in Eugene. So I guess her being more North is why that happens. Have a wonderful week dear friend. Hugs, Elena

Do you sell your produce from the farm? We want to make cider and pie filling this year. :)

Thanks,
JP

I love classic cars! Congratulations to Stacey for the top honors.
I am always so happy to see when you have been over to visit me. She is a good daughter, isn't she?
We may change it again, because I am not to sure of the white background.
