Summer Vacation Part 3

Besides hosting the reunion picnic at his house, and boarding my family, and getting his younger son off to Boys State, my Uncle opened a hot dog stand on Monday. It is really an indoor sit-down sort of place, so "stand" doesn't do it justice. And they also have hamburgers and ice cream. It's called R.E.D.S. Hots. R is for my Uncle Ray, E for Everett, D for Daniel, and S for Sandi-clever, no? THere used to be a honey place called Wixson's in that building, and it was a staple attractino for years and years as they had a hive with clear walls that you could see into. The hive is gone, but my uncle still sells the honey.

Uncle Ray mans the grill.

Because life wasn't busy enough with all that going on, they also opened a consignment shop on Wednesday. Mimi and I went shopping there, and Mimi got a cute shirt (she's wearing it in later pictures at the parade with Jennie's family) and a hat, and I got a painting I have covetted for over a decade. My uncle was kind an gifted it to me, and I could not be more excited. I'll post pictures another time since I don't have any taken digitally, but will fix that as soon as it's on my wall!

Before we visited Keuka Quality Consignment, we went letterboxing. We visited a gorgeous little private chapel that's only open for 3 hours a day, two days a week during 4 months of summer. The area was just breathtaking, but so heavily treed and steep that I have no good pictures of the property. The chapel did have amazing stained glass windows though:

and I got a decent picture of all the kids, although Mimi is kind of smearking.

And this picture below just makes me laugh, so I thought I'd share.
Pin It!

Love the pic of your kids! I also love the name of your uncle's hot dog place - "weinery" is hilarious.
