Fun in the Sun

No knitting content this post. I have three repeats done on the lace pattern of the baby dress I'm working on. That isn't a lot since it's only a six-row repeat. I turned the heel of the first Pillars of Atlantis sock last night and picked up the gusset stitches. That's as far as I got. Camera batteries are on charge, so pictures to follow next post.

We went to my BIL's yesterday. They have a pool, so there was lots of swimming involved, and a nice big bbq and salads. We took Jewel. Two of BIL's dogs were in their kennels (the boxer is nasty to other dogs, and better to be safe than sorry with the Pit, especially since Jewel is extremely hyper). The little roley-poley Valley Bulldog is fine. Anyways, my nut was tied to a tree, and when we went out front to have the bbq she decided to chew through the leash that her leash was attached to so she could join us. Nothing is safe around that thing unless it's chain.

Sea creature! No, wait -- it's the Littlest One.

My cutie patootie nephew in his new turtle boat.

Nephew and the Oldest One.

Nephew's Momma giving him a bath on the doorstep in a drawer! LOL! My other SIL insisted this made us look like a bunch of hillbillies! He had a great time splashing and trying to eat the rubber duckies.

This weekend was the town's annual Privateer Days celebration. Last night was the final day and closed with fireworks.

So that's it for now. On my way to town then BF's parent's place for more swimming. We've decided that next year or the end of this year when pools are on sale that we're getting a nice big one. Then the next year build a nice big deck around it. My dream was to have a deck that goes the whole length of the back of the house. Then there would be a pool at one end, decked in, too. We have patio doors in the basement that we bought five or six years ago to have installed in our bedroom at some point that would lead right onto the deck. It's nice to have dreams...

Happy knitting!
