Wonderful weekend

It was a great weekend.... sunny, hot and with a festival just around the corner.

Dave had a stag to go to Friday night, so as he was taking Saturday to recover, I hopped up to Mom's. She had my niece for the weekend, so we skipped on over to the Poultryfest for some shopping, tasty treats and fun.

I bought a hat, a beautiful labradorite ring and a Tinkerbell tattoo... we saw lots of chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys... munched on some fattening but delicious chip wagon fries, and Miss Pee wowed us by taking on the climbing wall....
Mom and I didn't think she'd get very far (both her father and I are not fond of high places... I've rock climbed and it's scary!) but she was determined and went all the way to the top (about 25 ... maybe 30 ft high) Not bad for someone just out of kindergarten!

On Sunday, Dave was recovered and we took a loooooooooooooong overdue trip out to Sam's. I gave them their birthday and Christmas presents from last year (told you it was overdue), played with her sweet little rats (who pooped on me) and her adorable little puppy (who bit me with those sharp little puppy teeth and left me covered in bruises.)

I forgot my camera, but Sam was kind enough to snap this one for me:
It was too perfect a moment to miss... you see Dave is extremely.... fastidious... he hates to be dirty (unless it's grease and motor oil)... but check out those socks..... it's a good thing they weren't hand knit!

Speaking of knitting, I don't know if anyone remembers that I was knitting Serenity for a little girl due in September. Well, I put it down and just haven't had the gumption to get back into it. I picked it up the other day, but I think I just left it too long..... so I frogged it. I've started designing my own, and if I get a full day of knitting on Wednesday (as I'm hoping to) I should have the pattern available by the end of the week!

Oh and one last thing before I go....

Fish update... there are no baby angels left.... the last one went missing from the breeder the other day. We'll try again when she lays a new batch!

I don't like heights, either, but my boys would love that climbing wall!

I was wondering about those socks, but thought at first he wasn't wearing any. I bet that'll never come out.

I like the photo of Dave on the swing. Cute.

Your little niece is adorable and brave!
