That's me in front of the mansion, with Ken Raney and my son, Justin, looking the other way.
Deb's husband, Ken, was her escort and I asked Justin, to act as my escort for the evening.
This is the library and sitting room situated directly off the dining room.
This is the gorgeous sunroom where I would want to spend all of my time.
What a perfect place to sit and write!
This bronze sits a short distance from the outdoor area and can be seen
from one side of the sunroom. Isn't it charming?

Although Cedar Crest is the smallest of all the governors’ mansion in the United States, it sits on more acreage than any other governor’s mansion. I think that points to the fact that Kansans really do value their land!
Deb and I had a wonderful time at the Book Festival that was held at the beautiful
Kansas History Museum. This picture was taken just outside the museum before we departed for home.
But first we stopped for one final photo with Governor Brownback and his wife, Mary.
The Book Festival was a wonderful event with a much larger crowd than last year so I feel sure there will be many more festivals in the future.
May you fiind joy as you experience new places with old friends. ~Judy
