Chillin' Sunday

Father's Day was pretty relaxed this year! After getting the house as immaculate as possible for the open house the realtor planned (and no one showed up for) we shoved off to our oldest daughter's home for some fun, sun, golf, and even some Guitar Hero! Here is DGD#1 who was showing off in their neighbor's pool. If you make the picture bigger by clicking on it, you can see the monster smile she has on her face!
DGS#1 played hard, but knows when a chaise lounge looks like a better plan. His neighbors have a Wii and he was really just biting at the bit to go in and play instead of being with us. I sure don't blame him!
Since the WWKiP day kinda was a bust for me this year I brought along my knitting knowing we'd probably be sitting outside most the afternoon. I gave it a shot, but to be honest it just felt weird and almost kind of rude with the little kids around. So there were 2 rows completed and then put away. Abby grabbed my camera and got the shot that Bill must see me sitting in 90% of the time - needles, yarn and a cable needle in my mouth. Precious, huh. Sheesh
You can probably see that there were no 'dads' to be found in these photos. That's because the men went golfing and got home just in time to see Tiger Woods' last shot of the day. Golfing is quite a challenge for DH yet, but was so grateful he was invited to go. Just doesn't know if the eyes are good enough to get back into really playing the game anymore. And we're talking about a guy here who golfed as much as possible back in the day. SO glad he gave it shot, and so is he.
After realizing how tired we REALLY were on the way home, we didn't even stop for dinner or pick anything up to eat. But we did watch the movie we'd rented and both made it through the whole thing without falling asleep. That just shows how good "The Bucket List" was. It would be a good one to actually own.

Hanging out by the pool, how cool is that. We did too, but well, it was the dog's pool and she was the only one that fits in it...LOL
Looks like you have a good weekend!

Great pic of you knitting! It's so nice to finally "meet" you.

I didn't do too much knitting on WWKIP day either.
