Doug and I spent Memorial day weekend visiting his sister's family in Atlanta. We got to meet 10-week-old Emma, who actually seemed happy enough to be eaten by a squid. Here's the pattern for the nifty squid hat. It's a pretty fun, quick project...it was a race to see if I could finish the last half of it on the drive down to Atlanta. I finished stitching on his last eye just minutes before we arrived!
And LM and John win super extra best host points for enabling my need to visit weird roadside attractions. They took us to see the BIG CHICKEN! We also took Emma on her first hike at Kennesaw Mountain and then shot her from a cannon to commemorate the event. :) Isn't she a cutie?
Besides having a wonderful time visiting with Doug's family, we also rounded out the trip by getting all sorts of National Park Passport stamps...Kennesaw National Battlefield Park, Audubon Acres on the Trail of Tears Historic trail (complete with poison ivy, stinging nettles and ticks!), and finally a nexus of stamps at Stones River National Battlefield!
