Warning: Photo Heavy Post Ahead!
What did I do on our family vacation?...nothing really. But that's the idea. Our lives are crazy-busy and we take this week, as a family, every July, to unplug and share some time with each other.
The trip Up North was a quick one with these two in the car. They are a very entertaining duo. Lots of singing (loudly!) was involved. Thanks goodness for Sirius XM Radio!
This is where I drank my coffee every morning.
My Baby Girl loves to fish.
Then just kick back and keep an eye on your bobber.
Big Daddy's favorite pictures are the ones she takes while the boat is moving.
We got tons of sun each day. (She is the tan one, I'm the chubby white legged one at the end of the dock. And yes, I am knitting.)
My idea of a Family Night Out.
Sibs in the boat.
Pasty White Boy got burned his first day at the lake.
Storms rolling in.
She tied her own fly!
Daddy and his Girl.
She learned how to clean her own fish.
My babies, one light, one dark. Gene pools are funny that way.
Big boys on a Night Fishing Mission. They didn't catch a thing. But oh, the stories of what happens when you fish in the dark!
Our fish count for the week. We didn't keep them all, that would not be very eco-concious. We only kept what we knew we would eat.
New screensaver photo.
Look! No stress!
The Golden Child went bass fishing.
I finished these for my Favorite Five Year Old.
And knit these for myself.
I love how the gussetts pooled.
Started these on the drive home.
This is what was waiting for me at work :/
I also have this waiting for me at home. Little bit of yarn...and tons of dye.
Look for a Willow Pond Dyeworks store update at some point next week. I plan to dye on Sunday. Its been VERY humid in the midwest of late, so not sure how quickly I will get everything dried, photographed, reskeined, re-photographed, and listed, Whew!
I'm VERY excited to be featured in Maine Knitting Cruise's 52 Skeins in the coming weeks. Keep you eyes peeled, and make sure you enter to win free yarn on their Facebook page!
My partner in crime opened a Facebook page for Willow Pond Dyeworks also. Please visit and let me know what you think. (Be honest. I can take it...I think.)
Linking to the Yarn Along pretty late this week.
