We took a little road trip to see one of our favorite places,
Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia.
Lots of lovely shops,
a dog friendly hotel (watching the Indy500 and the Coke600 with Room Service and knitting, WHAT could be more Fun, really?)
and of course, the famous monuments.....
erm....the Famous Sweater!
Inishmore is so incredibly beautiful in person, I could barely
stand it. Wendy very graciously urged me to try it on, and then
of course, I was SMITTEN. It is the most incredible heathery shade of
green and fits like it was made for me.
I tried to casually walk out the door with it on, but
there were lots of Knitters with their eyes on the door...
Guess I'll have to knit one for myself. NOT in nine days, mind you!
Carson loved the road trip, but especially all of the attention at
On the way back, we finally got to meet KnittingChocolate Melissa and her sweet son,
Monkey. The very best thing about blogging has been the amazing, wonderful people we've
met along the way....
Gotta go unpack and do laundry...Hope your weekend was Fabulous!
Oh, I almost forgot...Madagascar was a HOOT! I was a little dismayed that there were so many babies and toddlers there...honestly, I think that's too much visual stimulation for kids under three, but this movie was rated PG-13 for a reason. Unless you are comfortable with the storyline of going WILD and being tempted to EAT your friends....I would not recommend this for young ones.
I know I'm probably way, WAY overprotective, but most of the jokes in this movie were for grownups and older teens....LOTS of references to Other Movies. Some of the language is not what I would have ever let my kiddos repeat, but I guess I am hopelessly old fashioned.
The best part of the movie (besides the company) was the preview for the Wallace and Gromit movie.
