San Diego

We took a quick trip to San Diego to attend the Marine Corps Graduation of our friends son.

Here we are as we go to the Parade Field.

With our recently "christened" Marine, Kyle. He lost 48 lbs in 3 months during boot camp! Ack, I guess that is one way to lose weight.
On Saturday we took a trip to Sea World and visited Shamu.
A family photo on the grass.
Simon with a starfish......
and Hannah too. They are wet (actually we are all wet) after a ride on their water rapids ride. Yes, no matter what you did, you got wet.

I did not finish my sweater. I woke up at 4 am after a restless night on Thursday morning and did not knit a stitch on the drive over when I wasn't driving.

I did take my "tiny" knitting project along. The 2nd sock from my Summer Sock Swap. I actually chose the same pattern for my swap partner but don't hate knitting on the little needles this time around. Maybe because they are the short ones instead of the long needles.

I am about 3 inches from done and then back to my sweater. The sweater is home knitting only because it is so big!

Up later or tomorrow....stupid shoes/outfits worn in San Diego.

That Simon has the sweetest and most devious smile. I get the feeling he is always plotting something.
48 pounds in 3 months? BRUTAL.

So that is why you have been so quiet lately. Looks like a nice tour.
