I had a very nice trip down to visit my mom yesterday.
I brought down lunch and afterwards we sat outside on her porch and chatted for like 4 hours. While we chatted I sat there and knitted some more of my patriotic scarf. It was a very hot day but there was a nice breeze.  Exactly the kind of afternoon my mother loves.
And Sunday we spent the day with my husband's family.

(counter-clockwise starting with the girl on the left in the chair) My daughter, sister-in-law, my niece and 2 of her friends enjoying the afternoon on the dock.
Afterwards there was a run on the margaritas. Here you can see both of my husband's sisters and my daughter and on the right my niece. Somehow my mother-in-law moved back to miss being in the photo. We were teasing her since she had already poured herself a glass of wine and then got handed a margarita. A two fisted drinker.
While we relaxed and chatted the guys were busy fixing the deck that got ripped apart by this past winter's ice.
They stopped a lot and went for a lot of swims and also for a few beer breaks  so its not like they didn't get any play time either.
So now the July heat is really here, along with the high humidity, I plan on spending my day inside the nice cool house. Sounds like a good art day to me!
I think today is Canada Day too for those you just north of me over the border. Happy day to you.
And wherever you are have a great day yourself !

Just wondering what kind of yarn you are using for the scarf. Thanks for the Canada Day wishes. The pictures are so nice. Thanks for sharing your family fun. i am guessing you will show new art piece tomorrow.
