FAMILY IS THE BEST!!!

Seems like my world has been on a merry go-round of late!  Not much knitting, but lots of company.  Our daughter, husband and 2 g-daughters were here for 5 days.  They flew back to Washington yesterday, so today is rather quiet with lots of laundry to do.
The first couple of days they were here we took a trip to a local nursery/bird refuge which the girls loved.  Lots of macaws, parakeets, parrots, etc.  The g-daughters got in a lot of hours swimming in our community pool.  They've gone home with some red/pink places on their bodies - in spit of lots of sunscreen.
On Sunday we drove to OUT OF AFRICA north of Phoenix.  What a lot of fun seeing so many wild animals who have been rescued.  We got to see the feeding trucks going around and watch the animals (especially the big cats) tear into their food.  After leaving there, we drove on up to Flagstaff where we spent the night.  The next morning we drove on up to the Grand Canyon and hiked along a few trails enjoying the amazing vistas of the Canyon.  The temperature was cool (in the low 80's), unlike the 107 degrees in Maricopa.


So since this is a "knitting" blog, all I can report on is what I have "not" done.  Still working on the 2nd sock of my Happy Dance socks, but am being tempted to start the "Couplet" sock pattern, as there will be KAL starting July 1st.  We'll see how disciplined I am.
Keep knitting everyone - till next time!
