One of my mom's cousins is very active in the county Democratic organization. She approached mom and asked if they could use our house as the location for a fundraiser for the local Democratic state House of Representatives candidate.
The big house got cleaned top to bottom. Never a bad thing.
The cousins came and decorated in the morning before the (late afternoon) event.
Milo thought the streamers were really fun to play with. I had to keep steering him away so that he didn't tear them off the porch railing.
It was a perfectly beautiful day.
Unfortunately I missed the bulk of the party, due to my epic Ellsworth trip. All the pictures here are from the morning, when Milo and I were down at the house.
I did, however, make it to the tail end of the party. And, in fact, Milo and I had a brief conversation with former Senator George Mitchell, who was an esteemed guest of honor at the event. That was cool.
