Summer Vacation!

Just got back from a few days at DH's family's cottage. It's a Herculian effort to prep and pack the kids stuff, said kids are indescribably miserable during the 3+ hour drive up to the cottage and there is a lot of work and vigilance required of the parental units while at the cottage...but it's lovely and it feels like a vacation...except that I get to cook and clean. Anyway, here are a couple snaps to prove that we were away!

DH showing Boo how to use the floaty board:

Apres night swim...Ellery sipping milk back at the cottage.

Haley attempting to "rescue" Clare. Pay special attention to Haley in this photo, it's practically the last time that she resembles a Golden Retriever. (Swimming in the lake, even with careful rinsing afterwards, causes Haley to develop "hotspots" and we had to take her to the groomer for a "shave" today to help relieve the itching. Poor Haley, she looks like a cross between a Labrador and a shorn sheep.

So, lots of driving should equal lots of knitting and it did. Unfortunately, lots of knitting does not necessarily equal lots of finished product. I did something knot-headed with the top of the Josephine Top and had to frog the front and part of the back above the empire waistline.

Oh, BTW, guess who turns 10 tomorrow? Sniff....
