Labor Day Weekend
Ack! It's already the 3rd of September...time to get cracking on that whole blogging resolution.
The siblings came down from Michigan to spend the long weekend at Chez Knitalot. There was lots of sisterly bonding and baby-cuddling, as well as a large chunk of time spent being terrorized by yellow jackets. Pretty much every time we ventured outdoors (dinner outside, the lakeside picnic-lunch, and wine and cheese on the winery deck), the entire yellow jacket population of southern Indiana descended.* It was like The Birds, except without Tippi Hedren and her scary hair. Or birds, for that matter.
Here are a few pics from the weekend. Knitting coverage to resume soon.

I'm off to enjoy what's left of my 3-day weekend (by which I mean: knit). Over and out!
*we eventually discovered that yellow jackets love red wine and diet coke above all other beverages, which may explain why they they spent a lot of time following us around.
