Great Expectations

Can you see where this is going? You know what great knitting expectations I had for our camping week. Well......welcome to my world, where the great expectations are followed by the great crash and burn (hehe). I am taking it in stride though, because we had such a good time camping.

I did get to knit a little, but not much. The campground we were at had very little grass, so I only dared to take my socks out (wrapped carefully in their plastic bag). I really didn't work on them much because they are off-white. Off white socks and dirty campground don't go together so well. UGH!

We did get to do a lot of other fun things. The campground was in a really nice area with many activities within walking or biking distance.
The beach was right across the street.

The Monkey had fun in the sand.

Mini-golf was next door.

They had carts too. That's The Sporty One followed closely by the Musical One.
Followed not-so-closely by me and The Monkey. What a blast!

We even got to see the Wienermobile lol! We actually did many more things too, but I won't bore you all with more details.

Sooooo....even though not much knitting was accomplished, much family time was enjoyed by all, leaving us tired and happy.

Looks like the knitting wasn't really missed and that's just how it should be. You can't beat quality time with the fam. :-)

Oh cool! We had the weinermobile pass by a block from our house one time. Quite the car! I want one like that. Only it has to look like a sheep. Right?

Sounds like a good time was had by all. Did you get a chance to visit Yarn Quest or Lost Art?

Next week,it's my turn to head up north. Can't wait.

...Cause if I was an Oscar Meyer Weinie, everyone would be in love with me.

(Never back down from a challenge.)

Sounds like you all had a great time!

C'mon over to my blog...I've got a little contest going (it's on until Friday the 13th) for a couple sets of stitch markers. Anyone is welcome to enter. If you don't know the answers to the questions (the first one you can Google if you don't know), you can just guess. Even if the answer is wrong you will still be entered.
