A Wonderful Weekend

We kept two of the grandchildren this weekend.

Saturday morning we went to Council Grove, Kansas to see the Wah-Shun-Gah Days parade.

These handsome young men presented our colors proudly.

Of course there were bands.

This is the reaction of Two when the band started playing right in front of her.

This covered wagon spent the last week on a trail ride across eastern Kansas. The driver is my dad and in the jump seat is my mom. On or around the wagon were various family members.

Four was watching quite intently. She was pretty sure there would be ice cream after the parade. Of course she was right. Who knew two little girls could eat so much ice cream? Strawberry for Four and "choco chip" for the Two.

Other activities over the weekend included naps. Everyone needed a break from all the fun. Then there were wagon rides checking out the livestock. They don't like bugs, they did like the turtle and the cats stayed way far away from the fun.

When the long wagon ride was over it was time to cool off in the pool. The general consenses was the water was still cold but we simply couldn't wait any longer for it to warm up.

A fun time was had by all.

They love their Grandpa.

Flower Dishcloth

As my Mystic Light lies about basking in solitude I have only managed mindless knitting. Just before I lost the light tonight I managed to get a shot of the dishcloth I am knitting. There is a flower in the middle but it is difficult to make out in the variegated yarn. I love the colors in this yarn.
I finished another Scribble Lace shawl this weekend too but I didn't like how it looked in the late evening light.
Of course the cats were trying to help. I'm surprised that the rubbing on my legs didn't jar the camera.
Oh yes. Insurance picked up part of the tab on the air conditioner and also paid to fix the wash machine. So far no more lightening damage but my daughter's cell phone died the day the wash machine was repaired. The wash machine had died the day the air conditioner was repaired. PLEASE let this be the end.
