A Good Day.

It has actually been two good days, with the farmer's market, soccer game, and a Notre Dame football victory starting off the weekend on a good note.  Oh, and just about the cutest baby photo shoot yesterday at the park!  Routine sure does help sometimes.

But today was a really good day.  One I had been looking forward to...  a whole day with Lil' Guy!  That munchkin sure does make me smile :)

I'm afraid I might have used up our favorite rainy day adventure by going to the local Airplane Museum, but he was so excited to go, and it was just enough adventure for the week our family has had.

A few highlights...

Airplane Museum

Grandma & Lil Guy

Grandma joined us and I'm so glad she did!  Because while she and lil' guy went outside and saw 28 airplanes, in just about 20 minutes or so....


....I got to spend 20 minutes knitting on my new sock design.  I cast this on last Friday evening and it hasn't made much progress.  Those 20 minutes of happy knitting just felt right again :)

Pa & Lil Guy

After the airplane museum and a NAP, Lil Guy had fun showing Pa his new airplane.


The doggies were worn out after the fun day too! Although I'm not as sleepy as they are, I do think an early night is called for!

Happy Knitting!

Love Lil guy's smile - who wouldn't be cheered having him around all weekend. Glad you did some fun stuff. And knit, of course. On a new sock, no less. Can't wait to see it :0)

Li'l Guy is growing up! I remember seeing him first a couple of years ago on your blog and he was this chubby little toddler of a boy and now he has grown a few inches and shed some baby fat. The smile and those Irish eyes are still the same though. :)

Glad to hear you had a fun weekend!
