Flowers and Swings (Not Much Knitting)

Last week we bought the boys a swing set. Over two days it progessed to the finished thing. There's a spot under the slide that you can fill with sand. We haven't made it to that stage yet. It's a little further in the ground on the slide side, too. I'll have to try to rectify that one day it's not too hot out. The only bad thing about the wood, and I didn't think of it at the time, is the earwigs. Gotta give it a few bangs and let them fall from every nook and cranny before using it.

I'll try to add the last finished picture later. Blogger chose to crap out on me, of course.

We took the boys to see Cars yesterday. Now I know why we don't go to the show very often. For one thing, the Littlest One is still a bit too little to go to the show. There weren't many people there, and he didn't want to sit in his seat. Couple of trips to the bathroom, changing seats, running around. One of the ladies came and told him if he didn't sit down he'd have to help her clean. He probably would have liked that. It was a good movie, but it is long for an animated movie. When it first came out I read a review where the guy said it's too long for kids, and they were running around everywhere by mid-point of the movie. Anyhoo, he ended up falling asleep for the last half hour. We went to the matinee, so it was a little cheaper (still $26.80), but the worst was the refreshments! Hubby goes out and comes back with pop and popcorn for me and him and a kids special for each boy (pop, popcorn, gummies). $35!! Yikes!

Are these going to be bright or what? One down, one to go.

Happy knitting!

Glow in the dark socks!!

I'm waiting for the day my little one is old enough for the movies... 20 years? :) I miss the theatre, not the $ though!

Wow, this color really rocks, great! And so is the pattern you're using, I'm quite curious to see how the socks will look when they're finished!
Aren't prices so insane nowadays? It's the same over here, the last time we've been to the cinema we were totally shocked! How in the world do they think people could afford this, especially if they come with children and have to pay for 3, 4 or more persons? I've switched to Pay-TV in the meantime, it's way cheaper than cinema and the movies are shown pretty quickly after their release in the theatre...

That color is bright, but I love it. You may have said before what pattern you are using, but I can't remember. Which one is it?

Ugh, the dreaded earwigs. We had them bad in IL and when I moved to WA I had thought I got away from them.....but no. I have blasted earwigs here too. Love the day-glo socks! Those will be easy to find on a bleary Monday morning.
