I've been on vacation for the last few weeks. Yes, I said a few weeks! 2.5 weeks off, actually! WOOHOO! We went to Club Gramma (my parents' house) first. Here are my folks and my kid outside the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. We mostly just spent time lazing around and going to the pool and stuff. It was great!
I finished my first-ever Baby Surprise Jacket (and Elizabeth Zimmerman pattern). I gave it to my friend, baby Elizabeth the next day. The yarn is Bernat somethingorother in green with trim of double-stranded sport weight, Lorna's Laces Child's Play leftover from my shawl. The buttons were all culled from my mom's button box. Baby E said, upon seeing it "Try on? Try on?" :-)
We also went to Glow-in-the-dark Mini Golf. Fun!
After my mom and dad's, we traveled South to Marietta. On the way we visited Beaver Creek State Park and looked around. Nice little park. The flooding was starting by then, though, so we didn't canoe.
We had a good time in Marietta with my in-laws, and then back home to excavate my son's room and get him ready for school. We managed to finish our chores with enough time for a nice little paddle on the Hoover Resevoir. We saw the typical shore birds, got some sun, had a good time.
