Family Fun


Early Saturday morning we met Matthew, Ashley and Will for a kids time at the Pump It Up place. 
The kids had fun with their Dads.  

We had fun watching! 
Eli was  bit shell shocked at the noise level but he did well attached to Mama! 
They really like the bounce house! 
The Moms had  sit down time and watched them run around!
I had to rip out my Undine back to the place where I began the pattern around the leg.
I don't know wht I did but I lost the rhythm of the pattern and got off kilter.  I tried to ignore it but when i saw that  only purled a half row, that was it!  Time to tink!
I blame it on the late night knitting!  I'm almost back to where  I was now.... 
Eli is playing and has perfected his creeping and crawling now. 

It is so exciting to see him go everywhere!   
In the evening after naps, we went to the beach.  It was beautiful and restful.
Caleb is the master of shark-tooth-finding and even while holding a sleeping son, could out-find us as we walked along the shore that looked like this! 
He drew me  big circle because there were two teeth in there!  I found them but it was work! 
Here are the treasures I found tonight!
I now have 4 shark's teeth in my collection!
The shells with holes in them go into my weavings or hangings.

  1. Wow! I wouldn't want to get bit by that guy on the far left! That one is sharp (and LONG)!

    The kids are adorable. You know, I wouldn't mind having a go in the bouncy house. They ought to make those in big people size. LOL

  2. Eli is getting so big!
    I've had some counting glitches with my Undine also. It's easy but not mindless I am discovering.
    Your shark's teeth remind me of my mom. When emptying out Daddio's house I found boxes and boxes of them that she had gathered from the Bay over the years along with lots of arrowheads and pretty shells. I dumped them all around the yard so someone else will have the fun of finding them one day.

  3. Yes I remember well the noise levels of those Chuckle Cheese type places. I'll have to try some shark tooth hunting

  4. Oh that looks like some good times. I haven't been to a Pump it Up in a while, but the kids always had a blast! I love Eli's shell shocked look but even better is seeing him creep around, in action. The best.

  5. Love that Caleb drew a circle for you -- after years of our parents being the heroes who did similar things for us, it's nice to be on the giving end! :)
