While Mommy was in the Town Hall, she also was on a very impawtant mission. You see, our friend Miss Cindy from http://birdbrainsanddogtales.wordpress.com/ who lives right around the corner from us is a very accomplished quilter! She and the other women from the quilting club made a beautiful quilt for the Bicentennial of the town of Perinton (where we live). Mommy had to go see it for herself and was totally impressed!
Mommy wanted to sneak me in the door so we could have our picture taken in front of the quilt; at least that was her original plan. But you know what they say about the 'best laid plans of mice and men." The quilt is hanging on the wall right smack dab in front of the receptionist! There is no way that Mommy is gonna be able to sneak me in the FRONT door with ol'e eagle eye watching every move she made... Mommy has now gotta dream up a new plan.
These are the two panels that Miss Cindy quilted. The top one is of a beautiful church in our town. The second panel she did (and I'm sorry the pic's are so cruddy) is of The Fish Hatchery at Powder Mills Park.

Mommy and Daddy hope to meet up with Miss Cindy and Mr Charlie this Thursday at a HUGE event taking place right in our very own town. You will just have to wait until then to read all about it.
Anyways, this is what Mommy saw when she came out of the Town Hall.
I perked right up once I saw Mommy walking towards me! Guess Daddy was happy to see her too :) Don't ask about Muffin; I think she was snoozing and just woke up bcuz Mommy was gone for like 87 seconds.
I'm gonna tell you where we went next, but I will put that in a separate post.
