On Saturday, May 11th MK and I went to the HMQS (Home Machine Quilt Show) with my mom, aunt, cousin, cousin-in-law, and cousin-in-law's mom. It was a lot of fun. Lots of amazing quilts. Lots of great vendors. And a great Girls' Day Out.
My cousin, Marilee, let MK be the official photographer. She took her duties VERY seriously and took LOTS of pictures. She'd say "I need to get a close-up." Then, she'd start to back AWAY from the quilt. I got this picture of MK, Aunt Mary, and Grandma looking at quilts.
After we looked through the quilt show, we needed to take a break for a bit. My mom needed to sit with the Utah Quilt Guild's Opportunity Quilt for a couple of hours, so we all sat at the table with her. The Quilt Guild made a beautiful quilt that is being "raffled" off. Because Utah doesn't allow raffles, we have to make it an "opportunity" instead. So, you buy a piece of candy and get an "opportunity ticket" you fill out and you might win the quilt. Sounds silly, but there you go. It raises money.
So, MK became the official candy counter. She counted out the candies people bought.

We had such a great time. MK loves coming to these things with me, it's fun to share it with her.
