One of our favorite blankets for downstairs (we have favorite upstairs blankets that Erin's Mom quilted) are blankets that Anne and Becky Evans made for the girls. Every time they play "butterflies" (wrapping the blanket around like a cape and running around screaming "butterfly!") I can't help but remember my days babysitting for the Evans family. It seems like an eternity ago. But how cool is it that Anne made my girls blankets! So neat.
I may hate the searing heat of summer, but I love all the old friends that stay in Vegas with us.
