And....speaking of too many, I am posting more Dayton shots today. Our days were filled to the brim, Friday was shopping, I bought two really, really cute tops and spent an insane amount of money on them. I don't know why I think when I am out of town I have the license to just spend away. And then we ended up in a thrift shop and bought 3 more tops, at a much cheaper cost.
First time ever I have purchased something from a thrift shop, but couldn't resist, $10 for a beautiful blouse from Chico's. That evening we celebrated my nephew's 18th birthday with steaks on the grill, yum, first time this year.
Saturday was family celebration time again. My brother-in-law, his wife and my niece and her two little ones along with another nephew and others helped Joey continue his 18th birthday celebration with more food and lots of visiting. It was so good to see everyone, it had been far too long since my last visit. Boys have all grown up and heading off to college.

Sunday was cloudy with threatening rain, but we decided to go to Waynesville and risk it. Waynesville is an old town where many of it's original buildings have been converted into antique and gift shops....my kinda shopping altho I actually resisted spending, I think it was the guilt of so much spending on Friday that helped reel me in. Coming and going my sis-in-laws happily stopped for photo-ops along the way.
And my sweet Toby had a fun, fun time visiting too. Chasing the tennis ball over and over and over again filled his days. He was exhausted when we arrived back home. This image of Toby is so joyful. I love it.
Another great trip, short but oh so sweet.
