Well, yesterday we checked out of our VA Beach hotel, and started heading back home. We stopped in Richmond, and met up with Mikey and his lovely lady. We saw the Hulk! Which was pretty good. About 15 minutes into the movie, Ben (who's site seems to be down ATM) rang and was also in Richmond, only he was on his way to Virginia Beach!
So, he joined us for the movie, and then some Starbucks (which I'm not usually very into, so I didn't know what to get) and then we all had supper at Outback.
Then we all parted ways and headed in 3 different directions.
While I really enjoyed my vacation, we were also very antsy to get back home. We missed our kitties! They missed us too... although they keep alternating between love and being angry... Here they are in a surprise close pose, with no batting. A united front against that evil flashy thing.
Anywho, here's some pictures from the aquarium.
From our hotel room
And I enjoyed some wine while we were there!
And here's the yarn that I got while I was there, and the yarn that arrived while I was gone.
First, my current progress on my cheeto pajama socks.
These two I got at Ewe Knit & Yarn in Virginia beach. The owner is very nice, and signed me up for her mailing list and gave me a free measuring tape! Its already in the toolbag of my normal knitting bag.
These two I got from MissBabbs
They came with a little 40 yard skein of black for heels and toes! I think I might use it for a super secret project for a friend of mine.
I also got my Emergency Knitting bag as seen on Turtle Girl's Blog
This will be going to work with me so I can knit on my lunchbreak :) Its awesome!
Big thanks to Ben for watching and feeding our babies, even if you only hung out for free cable :P
Also thanks to Sam's brother for letting us use his camera... I've become quite spoiled and think I might have to get my own very soon.
