Weekend Recap

This past weekend, I was pretty busy making buttons and visiting William in Modesto.

I finished up a lot of new Fresno buttons and delivered them to Twee on Saturday afternoon.

I then went to Modesto and visited William. We went rock climbing yesterday and it totally kicked my butt! I am so not in shape to do it. It takes a lot of full body strength. My arms are soooo weak…I’ve never had a lot of upper body strength, I remember never being able to do the monkey bars!

Today we went to a flower show by the Camelia Society of Modesto. It was held on the grounds of the Gallo Winery. Gallo owns a huge chunk of Modesto and has beautiful grounds and architecture. They opened up their main offices. Here’s the main floor with all the flowers.

Here’s a couple bloom photos I shot:

A wide variety

I also got to see some old vintage ads that they had on display. I heart them!

On the grounds were birds and peacocks…

This parrot was so sweet. He was outside at the Gallo Winery. I think he’s normally kept inside. Anyway, I talked to him, and he put out his little talon for me to pet. Then I was able to put my finger in and give him a little massage around his neck. I actually think he/she really liked me. Such a sweet birdie and pretty too!!!

I later took some photos of William with Frankie.
