What's Happening in May and June?

Some of you may have noticed the badge to the right. It indicates I will be participating in the blogathon again this year. The fun starts tomorrow, so stay tuned!

The air smells sweet, and the sun will shine this weekend, so we have reason to rejoice. I HEART Spring. Don't you? Our German family had to endure five days of showers, but that did not slow them down. They tried almost all of our local restaurants, a different one every night. I was amazed at how well the children looked after themselves, playing in the garden, while the parents went jogging or read books. We had some great discussions over breakfast. The children always wear smiles. It's been nice to witness their energy and joie de vivre.

I will miss these new friends when they leave tomorrow. That's another hard part of being an innkeeper: getting attached to guests, only to have them depart. But things are revving up in town. Check out some of the events scheduled in May and June.
