little of this..

a little of that...
i love summer.
i know i say it sooo much, but I really do.
i think it has to do with the fact that i was born in early august.
a lot of people i know with summer birthdays really love summer, like excessively, like me.

if the sun is out, i feel guilty for being in the house. at all.
vacation is coming up and it's supposed to be hot and beautiful.
and i'll be out in nature. oh this makes me happy!

sooo, anyways. who wants to see some snapshots of our summer so far?

during the week we go out and do this:
Rob's RC airplane
we can only go when it's not windy (rarely) and only Rob knows how to fly it so me and Devin watch.
and this time we took pictures. 

devin's photog skills. i'm actually in the frame!!

 Rob documented that he lets me drive his car:
tops off!!

Here's how I found devin the other day when I got up for work:
Of course when I went to get my camera, he woke up, so I made him close his eyes... what a good faker haha!

A couple weeks ago, we went to our friends' house and Rob decided to wash his truck.
then devin decided to wash his friend's trike for her. I thought this was hilarious:

 We washed the baby jeep too but I didn't get a picture of that:

and finally, my little french boy:

we are not french. at all.
there was a picnic/block party put on by the city in our park a few weeks ago.
there was a bounce house, free hot dogs, face painting, balloon animals, chalk, etc.
it was so fun. we got to see the insides of a fire truck too.
so anyways, i was walking with Devin over to the face paints and I asked what he wanted the girl to paint on his face. A mustache..
Funny kid. So when we told the girl she decided a swirly one would be good.
So hilarious.

ps. today is cast-on day for the KAL! finally!!

Don't you just love june? time just goes and goes - seriously this last week I've stayed up til midnight every night. the sun made me do it! That is waaay past my bedtime, and I'm exhausted today! Wish I had a coffee pot at work right about now...

Also, I was really concentrated on this project I was knitting. (big surprise)

full moon blanket by pickles

My goal was to finish it before luvinthemommyhood's summer sweater knit-a-long. I didn't get to participate last year, because I was not prepared yarn- or time-wise. This year, I'm prepared for cast-on next week sometime.  I think I am anyway, I got the confirmation email that my yarn is in the mail, so I'm really hoping it comes today (rather than tomorrow, i had it delivered to work and I won't be here on a saturday... not even for yarn!)

The sweater I have queued up for the KAL is Pekoe, and I'm really excited to get started. It was sooo hard to pick a pattern! There are so many many pretty sweaters to choose from! I decided to go for my first pullover sweater. My red cardigan has been finished but not finished for awhile.. ya I'm lazy like that..I'm sure I'll finish it in a snap this fall, for now I have no need obviously. I guess I just like doing things in opposites because the Pekoe will be more of a summer top and I'm guessing I won't finish until the weather starts cooling down, mainly because it is knit with sock yarn, aye aye aye!! that detail would hardly matter to me if I wore a size small.... it is definitely going to be a ton of knitting!
